Amy Schumer is on a mission to take down sizeism, one hilarious sketch at a time.
In the latest episode of Inside Amy Schumer, the comedian and actress attempts to go shopping for new clothes, only to be shut down by a sales associate when she asks for a garment in her size.
"Could you keep your voice down? You're scaring the thinner customers," the associate responds.
Of course, Amy is undeterred by this ridiculously offensive response, and instead pushes forward, asking if they have a shirt she likes in a size 12. The sales associate basically short circuits in response, unable to comprehend the idea that such a size exists — until she remembers they "have a whole section for [her] ... 'situation.'"
The sales associate then takes her to an open field, where Lena Dunham — yes, that Lena Dunham — comes running up to her in a see-through plastic raincoat. (No bra, of course.) After looking around this bizarre alternate universe, the associate ends up selling Amy a literal tarp cover, then sends her on her way with a mall pretzel in the bag.
At first glance, the sketch might seem like it's all fun and games, but it actually addresses a very real shopping experience for a lot of women — and as per usual, Amy absolutely kills it.
While things are definitely getting better, our society's beauty standards continue to dictate what sizes stores keep in stock, rather than the diverse range of body sizes of actual people. Amy has always been outspoken about loving her body no matter its size, and this sketch is the perfect reminder that all women deserve to find clothes that makes them feel fly AF, regardless of the number on the scale.
