Comedian and actress Amy Schumer tries to advocate for body positivity.

In her Netflix special, Amy Schumer: The Leather Special, she said, "I feel strong. I feel healthy. I do. I feel sexy."


So when Instagram user "Cewlguy" face-tuned one of Schumer's photos through an app to illustrate that a thinner version of the actress was better, the I Feel Pretty actress had no time for that.

Using a before photo of Schumer wearing a black and white bikini at the beach next to an altered, slimmer version of her body, the user wrote:

"So I think Amy looks great already but man does she look way better I'm [sic] my OPINION in the second photo."

The since deleted post was screen-grabbed by the Daily Mail and shared online.


Schumer disagreed with Cewlguy's post. But instead of lashing out, she responded:

"I disagree. I like how i really look".
"That's my body. I love my body for being strong and healthy and sexy."
"I look like I'd give a good hug or have a drink with you."
"The other picture looks nice but it's not me. Thanks for sharing your thoughts as well. See, we're both right."

The comedian added a comment to Cewlguy's post, writing "Real a__ me" to the before picture and "Boo" to the Photoshopped version.

The face-tuner expressed remorse after having second thoughts and reading Schumer's response. Cewlguy immediately took down the post.

The user then apologized and ceased activity on the account originally intended to feature face-tuning of various celebrities.

Cewlguy expressed regret, admitting they should never have tampered with an image that was already beautiful.

"Actually nothing should be photoshopped because real is beautiful, I've learned that. Thank you to everyone who called me out on my bulls—! Because of all of you a [sic] idiotic person like me can become a better person!"

In addition to the public apology, they posted directly to Schumer's account as well.

"I understand that this can be seen as negative but I really wasn't trying to be! I was just curious and decided to see what you'd look like with my face tune app and I didn't realize that it was that bad!
"I'm sorry for my ignorance and I will take it down! I have no right to make people feel bad about themselves!"

Back in December 2016, Schumer responded to backlash in response to Hollywood rumors she would play Barbie in an upcoming live-action movie. Critics said she was "too fat" for the role.

Schumer took to Instagram and spoke out on the purported fat shaming.

"Is it fat shaming if you know you're not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don't think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love."


In her same post, she elaborated on what she sees when she looks in the mirror. It's a different perception from what the trolls have to say.

"When I look in the mirror I know who I am. I'm a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I'm a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I'm fearless like you can be."

Cewlguy is no longer actively using the account, but instead of deleting it altogether, left it as an example of keeping opinions about other people's bodies to yourself.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.
