I say if I’m beautiful, I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story. I will.

Variety reported last week that she was in talks to play Barbie and the plot of the movie would involve the character getting kicked out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough and going on an adventure in the real world.

The comedian posted a picture of herself in a black swimming costume on Instagram and wrote the best response!

The 35-year-old Trainwreck actress said: “Is it fat shaming if you know you’re not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don’t think so.

“I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where’s the shame? It’s not there. It’s an illusion.”
