Amy Schumer Gives The Perfect Reason For Not Caring About Body Standards


Amy Schumer is one of the funniest and realest chicks in the entertainment industry today.

I mean, any woman who can successfully pull off a ditty like “Milk, Milk, Lemonade” is a hero in my book.

Recently, Schumer spoke at Glamour UK's Women of the Year Awards and gave the speech to end all speeches. The topic? Loving yourself.

During her Trailblazer acceptance speech, Schumer proudly announced,

Since the speech, the comedienne has been hailed for her bravery, attitude and commitment to being the coolest bitch around.

Yes, she may be crass, but she's incredibly inspiring, too. How often do you hear a celebrity publicly announce his or her weight?

It's that sort of confidence that makes Schumer so appealing and relatable and her words of wisdom so inspiring.

Plus, her reasoning is solid. Why should she care what she weighs as long as she's happy?

This isn't the first time Schumer made waves for her commitment to promoting body positivity and confidence.

Earlier this year, she started an Instagram campaign urging fans to post makeup-free selfies as a means to challenge society's unrealistic standards of beauty.

The world could use more celebrities like her.
