Amy Schumer is a funny woman who is creating her own funny movies and television shows. So of course, someone just had to make an are-you-serious comment about her weight.
Last week, she unveiled the trailer for her upcoming rom-com, Trainwreck. In the movie, she plays a woman who can't handle monogamy–until she meets Bill Hader, who tries to get her to settle down. The red-band trailer features Schumer in her underwear, kicking various guys out of bed without a care in the world. It's a pretty refreshing portrayal, since it's usually the man in a rom-com who needs to be "tamed."
But within the chorus of praise from excited Schumer fans came one troll-y review, seemingly tailor-made to get people mad. "Director Judd Apatow is once again introducing a chubby, whipsmart, not conventionally attractive, neurotically bothered female comic to a mass audience," Jeffrey Wells wrote on the site Hollywood Elsewhere. "There's no way she'd be an object of heated romantic interest in the real world."
Schumer actively is not giving a crap, though. "I didn't read the thing. I think this is probably a good thing. I like that he was the only one that said anything," she told USA Today (opens in new tab) in a new interview. "It was such an example of sort of the reason for trolling. It seems like a rewarding experience for people who do that stuff. From the bottom of my heart—I could not care less."
After the review went viral last week, she posted a photo of her posing in just her underwear and heels. She looked amazing, and insisted she won't lose any weight just for some lousy critic:
She also posted another photo, putting a new spin on "conventionally attractive":
All that seems to have chastened Wells, because he published an apology on Friday for the review. "She's a first-class talent and deserves more respect than what I gave her," he wrote. But he couldn't leave it at that, adding:
Sigh. Once a troll, always a troll.
