You would think by now that people have learned to steer clear of insulting the notoriously outspoken comedian Amy Schumer. Alas, people are stupid. This was further proven by a swimwear designer from Massachusetts who decided to shame Schumer for her swimsuit cover on InStyle magazine. Needless to say, the internet isn’t having any of it.
Comedy queen, Amy Schumer, recently graced the cover of InStyle magazine.
InStyle recently shared a photo of their May cover via Instagram featuring Amy Schumer in a white Ralph Lauren one-piece. Of course, she’s looking absolutely flawless.
South Shore Swimwear designer Dana Duggan quickly jumped on the photo with a nasty comment about Schumer’s physique.
“Come on now!” Duggan wrote under the account of her South Shore Swimwear brand. “You could not find anyone better for this cover? Not everyone should be in a swimsuit.”
Naturally, several of the mag’s followers were quick to shut Duggan down.
And one called Duggan out for being the problem with body image.
To which Duggan responded:
Well bitch, having the freedom of speech doesn’t mean you need to be nasty.
HuffPost reached out to Ms. Duggan to better understand why she felt the need to comment.
“I appreciate the free press. It’s called Freedom of Speech,” she said. “I can have my opinion and you can have yours. I’m tired of the media and publications trying to push the FAT agenda. It’s not healthy and it’s not pretty. What is wrong with featuring healthy and fit cover models?”
Oh my god. Really? Unless she happens to be some form of medical professional, which it’s probably safe to assume is not the case, Duggan has no business commenting on how “healthy” other women are. You’d think someone who’s building a clothing brand would want to represent a more accepting and universal aesthetic. Guess not.
