Oh Amy Schumer, you dazzling gem of realness. The comedian celebrated the Fourth of July on the beach this past weekend wearing a swimsuit, because that's the appropriate thing to wear to a beach. Saluting the camera in front of two huge American flags, Schumer captioned her photo “An American treasure.” And she was probably being snarky, but it's true. She is a goddamn American treasure.
A day earlier, the comedian, adorned in goggles, and her sister/road manager posed for a photo in a pool, with a few hashtags making fun of celebrities, like: #hadidsisters #balmain #eattolivedontlivetoeat #eattoeat and #poolmanager.
A few months ago, the 35-year-old comedian and Trainwreck star shared a paparazzi pic of her in a bathing suit photo, sending a message to trolls that she’s “strong and healthy" (read: a woman with a body who is alive and therefore perfectly qualified to wear a swimsuit).
“I meant to write ‘good morning trolls!’” she captioned the pic. “I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you’ve never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone. This is how I look. I feel happy.”
PREACH. So take a hint from Schumer and live free and go to the beach—on Saturday. Because it's Tuesday and some of you have to work.
