Amy Schumer You’re Not Fat!

Hey, I like funny just like the rest of you.

And Amy Schumer is funny.

Here’s the thing though and I’m soooo not trying to be a downer – at least on purpose. But Amy Schumer tells a lot of jokes about her weight and not being Hollywood enough or skinny enough and I keep looking and thinking:


But in the clips I’ve seen from talk shows, she’s spends a lot of time comparing herself to Hollywood actresses who are like, 5’2 and 85 lbs. Outside the magazines or off the silver screen and into real life, you will realize:

Nobody looks like that.

Okay, that’s not true, nine year old boys look like that. But women? Barely any.

Here’s what I think.

I think Amy Schumer needs to get herself to a CrossFit gym. I think she needs to stop comparing herself to all the tiny Hollywood actresses and I think she needs to spend some quality time under a barbell squatting. I think she needs to swing a kettlebell or get a pull-up or climb a rope – not to lose weight – but to realize the strength in the body she’s got.

I’ll probably still laugh at her funny, because that she is.

But she is not fat.

So, stop it.

  1. Not fat! However, major potty mouth and not a person I would want my daughter be like.

  2. Lilly, I’ve only seen network television interviews, so I can’t even speak to that. But, I’m sure there’s language as in most comedy acts. I can relate to her on some of the food stuff though!
