In case you have not heard, comedian Amy Schumer has been tapped to play Barbie in the upcoming film.
After it was announced earlier this week, Schumer was attacked by internet trolls who mocked her appearance after hearing she was cast as Barbie.
This morning, Schumer fought back, posting a picture of herself in a one piece bathing suit on Instagram and writing –
“Very Very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammy’s and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. Is it fat shaming if you’re not fat and zero shame in your game? I don’t think so.”
She goes on to say that she is strong and proud of how she lives her life.
Never mind the detractors who claim Amy does not fit Barbie’s slim appearance and signature look, because the plot according to deadline.com will follow Schumer as she is kicked out of Barbie-land for not being perfect enough.
After going on an adventure in the real-world, Schumer will then return to Barbie-land with a new found acceptance of herself.
Barbie comes out Summer 2018.
