Amy Schumer is not laughing. And it’s Glamour Magazine’s fault.

The magazine featured the Trainwreck star in the most recent issue that was aimed at “plus-size” women, and featured Schumer alongside notable “plus-size” stars.

Schumer made her displeasure known on Instagram.

She posted a snap of the cover, and wrote: “I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it does’t feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous.”

To date, the post has generated 72,000 likes and close to 6,000 comments of support.

“Why is there event a plus-size issue? Different body types should be celebrated in every magazine,” wrote @sllogel.

“Every body type is beautiful and doesn’t need a label!” added @bockajmarina.

“When’s the Portly issue of GQ hit the newsstands?” asked @thebushyg.

Schumer's name appears on the issue's cover alongside Melissa McCarthy, Adele and Ashley Graham under the "Women Who Inspire Us" section.

Responding to the Comedy Central star's post, Glamour released the following statement:

"First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too — which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year. The cover line on this special edition — which is aimed at women size 12 and up — simply says 'Women Who Inspire Us,' since we believe her passionate and vocal message of body positivity IS inspiring, as is the message of the many other women, of all sizes, featured. The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way."

Throughout her career, Schumer has been an advocate for body positivity and taken the media to task over the way they write and report on women, claiming that it's not just about her, but what it says more broadly to the community and specifically, to younger women.

Schumer was the recipient of Glamour Magazine's 2015 Trailblazer of the Year award. Watch her now infamous award acceptance speech below...
