Did Glamour Magazine forget Schumer can catch a d--k whenever she wants?

Schumer has been fat shamed by the magazine that showcased her debut.
This week Schumer was included in Glamour magazine's special "Plus Size" bonus issue in collaboration with Lane Bryant and she's pissed. Schumer was never gave them permission and she doesn't appreciate that Glamour labeled her as "Plus Size". Though Schumer's name was listed among other Hollywood A-listers such as Melissa McCarthy, Adele, and Ashley Graham but Schumer wants to make it very clear that these are just normal woman without the need of any labels and "Plus Size" is just another unneeded label in our society.
"I think there is nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8," Schumer captioned on Instagram. "@glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous."
Boom.
Schumer also took to Twitter to post her Instagram post and discuss her feelings about the magazine posing the question to Twitter, "Hey Twitter! I'd love your thoughts?" Within hours, the post got 1.4k retweets, 5,300 likes, and hundreds of comments. Elite Daily even wrote an article titled "Sorry, But Amy Schumer Is Definitely Not Plus-Size" captioning the tweet "WE GOT YOU". Other stars such as Juliette Gash and Kathryn Williams showed their support online.
After hundreds of supportive comments, the comedian tweeted, "Thanks for sharing your thoughts everyone except the people who told me what I 'should feel' or what I 'should have focused on'." She then followed up with, "Bottom line seems to be we are done with these unnecessary labels which seem to be reserved for women."
You tell them, Amy!
In a statement from Glamour magazine, a spokesperson told PEOPLE magazine, "First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too – which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year. The cover line on this special edition – which is aimed at women size 12 and up – simply says "Women Who Inspire Us," since we believe her passionate and vocal message of body positivity IS inspiring, as is the message of the many other women, of all sizes, featured. The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way."

Should we get rid of the label "Plus-Size"?

The average size for women in the US is a 14 and stores generally only stock up to a size 12 so yeah, the label makes no sense at all.

Yes! It's fat shaming and it's not nice! You're just breaking down someone's self esteem.
