Amy Schumer slams people still commenting on appearance after explaining 'puffier' and 'swollen' face

The Trainwreck star says she gets more negativity about her appearance than her career

Amy Schumer has slammed people who are still commenting on her appearance after explaining her ‘puffier’ and 'swollen' face.

The Snatched star was recently slammed by trolls after an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Schumer was on the show to promote the new season of her series Life & Beth but people online seemed to be more concerned about her face which seemed ‘puffier’.

The comedian even did a little stand-up set accompanied by back-up dancers, but users online were mostly curious about her face being ‘swollen’.

As people carried on the chatter about her appearance in the days afterwards, she took to Instagram to say: “Thank you so much for everyone's input about my face!"

Schumer did say that people were right that her face is ‘puffier than normal’ while explaining the changes were due to her endometriosis diagnosis – a long-term condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows in other places.

The Trainwreck actor added: “I also believe a woman doesn't need any excuse for her physical appearance and owes no explanation. But I wanted to take the opportunity to advocate for self love and acceptance of the skin you're in."

But despite encouraging people to just focus on her new TV show rather than commenting on her appearance, it continued.

And yesterday (20 February), Schumer appeared on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast where she claimed she gets more negative comments about her appearance than her career itself.

“I think they're mad that I'm not thinner, I think they're mad I'm not prettier, and that I still feel like I have a right to speak,” she said.

Schumer reckons the criticism she receives regularly is misogyny and that she’s grown a ‘thick skin’ over the years.

She said: “I think that they don't want any woman to speak - I mean, what woman has ever opened her mouth and not been torn to shreds?”

And while she does her best to focus on the love from her fans, it’s hard to ignore those who ‘feel very comfortable s***ing on her'.

“I could focus on that and it doesn't feel good when the whole internet's mad at you,” Schumer continued. “Don't get me wrong - it does not feel good and I don't wish that on anyone if they don't deserve it. It's been a long time people have been coming for me.”
