Amy Schumer hits back at more body-shaming trolls after comments on her ‘puffy face’

She opened up about growing a 'thick skin' over the comments

Amy Schumer has responded to body-shaming trolls after even more comments on her 'puffy face'.

The Trainwreck actor has been very vocal about the negative comments she's been met with about her appearance throughout her career and has recently talked some more about the ordeal during an interview on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.

In the episode, Amy - who recently opened up about her endometriosis diagnosis amid speculation about her face looking 'puffy' - discussed online trolling and why she felt particularly targeted by it.

"I think they're mad that I'm not thinner, I think they're mad I'm not prettier," the 42-year-old said. "And that I still feel like I have a right to speak."

She added: "I think that they don't want any woman to speak - I mean, what woman has ever opened her mouth and not been torn to shreds?"

Amy confessed it was difficult at times to ignore the mean comments from the trolls who 'feel very comfortable sh*ting on her'.

"I could focus on that and it doesn't feel good when the whole internet's mad at you," she continued.

"Don't get me wrong - it does not feel good and I don't wish that on anyone if they don't deserve it. It's been a long time people have been coming for me."

Amy Schumer addressed comments about her 'puffy face'.

Last week, Amy took to Instagram to share with her 13 million followers a statement about her health.

It read: "Thank you so much for everyone’s input about my face! I’ve enjoyed feedback and deliberation about my appearance as all women do for almost 20 years. And you’re right it is puffier than normal right now.

"I have endometriosis, an auto-immune disease that every woman should read about. There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now but I’m okay.

"Historically women’s bodies have barely been studied medically compared to men."

The stand-up comedian previously opened up about her endometriosis.

Amy, who appears in the season of her Hulu series Life & Beth, continued: "I also believe a woman doesn’t need any excuse for her physical appearance and owes no explanation.

"But I wanted to take the opportunity to advocate for self love and acceptance of the skin you’re in. Like every other women/person some days I feel confident and good as hell and others I want to put a bag over my head.

"But I feel strong and beautiful and so proud of this tv show I created, wrote, starred in and directed. Maybe just maybe we can focus on that for a little?"
