The 34-year-old actress took to Instagram and Twitter to voice her concern that the fashion magazine included her in its "plus-size only" issue. Everyone's favorite outspoken comedian is well-versed in more than just one-liners; she's been a vocal champion of the body-positive movement, too.

"I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size," she began the caption accompanying an Instagram photo of the front cover of the magazine, which features her name alongside the likes of plus-size beauties Melissa McCarthy and Ashley Graham.

She was careful, too, to make clear that she wasn't offended simply due to the size of the women she was coupled with. "Beautiful healthy women."

But she went on to condemn the magazine for including her in an issue meant to celebrate women size 16 and up. After all, Schumer's generally a size 6 or 8.

Oy.

And what's more, she mentions that the magazine included her without her consent or knowledge ... which just "doesn't feel right to [her]."

The way Schumer sees it, Glamour's reinforcing the idea that larger body types are the exception, while a traditional model's more slender figure is the rule.

"Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous."

Schumer then took to Twitter and posted a screenshot of the Instagram post, calling upon the generally-less-than-kind people of the Internet to join her in her outrage.

And later in the day, she posted yet another Instagram thanking her friends on social media and beyond for their (fiery, furious, and altogether frightening) support.

Clearly, this is an issue that Schumer believes needs attention, and she's not ready to sweep it under the rug just yet.

What do you think? Should the magazine have left her out of its issue? And if so, does she deserve an apology?
