Amy Schumer is calling out critics who slammed her potential casting as Barbie in an upcoming live-action film based on the Mattel doll.
Variety reported last week Schumer was in talks to play Barbie and the plot of the movie would involve the character getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough and going on an adventure in the real world.
The comedian posted a picture of herself in a swimsuit on Instagram Tuesday . She says those who attempted to fat shame her have failed because she knows she’s not fat and has “zero shame” in her game. Schumer says the backlash has made it evident that she’s a “great choice” to play “an important and evolving icon.”
