As soon as she released Lemonade, Beyoncé did the world a huge favor by providing lyrics for any occasion. For instance, Amy Schumer used "Formation" lyrics to respond to Internet trolls and it was absolutely perfect. Posing alongside a ridiculously cute dog, she wrote, "Whispering 'always stay grateful best revenge is your paper.'" Congrats to the comedian for finding the best formula for a comeback: Queen Bey, puppies, and humor. By not stooping to the haters' level, she's basically saying that she'll keep being successful, as all they do is sit and watch.
Although they were posted hours apart, the above response seemingly corresponds to another post from earlier on Tuesday. Before this, Schumer shared paparazzi beach photos and wrote,
I meant to write "good morning trolls!" 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. I think I look strong and healthy and also like miss trunchbull from Matilda. Kisses!
Unfortunately, beach photos of the Inside Amy Schumer star surfaced online and apparently people wrote rude comments. Making matters worse, she was on vacation celebrating six months with boyfriend Ben Hanisch, according to his Instagram. People's negativity definitely puts a damper on the romance, right? The trend of critiquing women's bodies is easily one of the worst things about the Internet. (Just look at what happened to Blac Chyna last week when her pregnancy style became a target.) Shouldn't Schumer be able to enjoy vacation without worrying about her body being photographed and posted for the whole world to see? At least she's not putting up with such nonsense. As seen in the responses above, the 34-year-old is on a roll lately. She's standing up for herself like a champ.
This isn't the first time that Schumer embraced body acceptance. Just look at the sketches on her Comedy Central series. Perhaps the best example in recent memory was her skit with Lena Dunham about what it's like to try and find larger sizes in clothing stores. It's a comical critique on how frustrating shopping can be, especially when it comes to unrealistic beauty standards. Check it out below:
It's a shame that Schumer has to raise her voice in the first place, but props to her for doing it with humor and grace. Oh, and Beyoncé lyrics — can't forget about that.
