Amy Schumer’s new movie “I feel pretty” is set for release this weekend but not without coming under attack from feminists who claim the new movie promotes a negative body image stereotype in the trailer.
In the new flick, Amy plays a character with low self-esteem who one day bumps her head and than thinks she’s a super model…Amy has now responded to the negative press, insisting that people are missing the point on the comedy. Amy told the Vulture in part;
“But first off, it’s not about an ugly troll becoming beautiful; it’s about a woman who has low self-esteem finding some. Everyone’s got a right to feel that feeling, regardless of their appearance. We all struggle with self-esteem. I certainly have.”
