News leaked this weekend that Amy Schumer is in talks to play Barbie in a live-action movie. But before we could get too excited about the rumors (will Barbie’s satire be as on point as Amy’s?), Twitter trolls came out in force, accusing Schumer of being too fat to play Barbie. Come again?
Schumer isn’t a body double of the original Barbie doll. But no one is—those body dimensions are anatomically impossible. Plus, the storyline reportedly centers on the comedian being kicked out of “Barbieland” for not looking “perfect enough.” She spends the rest of the movie learning to love her body, which seems like a pretty perfect role for Schumer, especially considering the epic clapback she had for body-shaming trolls earlier this year: “This is how I look. I feel happy. I think I look strong and healthy and also like Miss Trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!”
