In April, Amy Schumer called out Glamour for featuring her in the editors’ “Chic at Any Size” issue. “Plus-size is considered a size 16 in America,” she wrote on Twitter and Instagram. “I go between a size 6 and an 8…Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus-size?”
In the most recent episode of Inside Amy Schumer, the comedian satirizes the idea of size-shaming. Schumer is shopping for T-shirts when a store employee offers to help, then discourages her from buying clothing: “Can I help you find something else? Like maybe some jewelry?”
When Schumer requests the shirt that she’s holding in a size 12, the clerk asks, “12 like a U.K. 12, which is a U.S. 8? Or like a Japanese 12, which is an American toddler 3?” poking fun at the skewed sizes of women’s clothing.
Finally, the employee escorts Schumer through a curtain into a farm, saying “we have a whole section for your… situation.”
On the farm, Schumer finds Lena Dunham, who says she “asked for a turtleneck and they brought me here, like, three months ago.” They comment that the blanket on the grass had been worn by Mindy Kaling.
Schumer ends up buying a blue tarp that’s meant to cover all of her “problem areas” and then receives a mall pretzel in her shopping bag at the register because “we assumed that’s where you’d be going next.”
