Amy Schumer is standing up for herself and questioning Glamour magazine about why she is on the cover, according to ABC News.

The comedian took offense with the inclusion of her name on the magazine's special issue that is entitled "Chic at Any Size." The star was listed beside other stars like Melissa McCarthy, Adele, and cover model Ashley Graham. The heading above them said "Women Who Inspire Us."

"I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me," she wrote on Instagram. "Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size? What are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous [sic]"

However, that isn't exactly what Glamour was saying, according to Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive. She took to Twitter to defend the magazine and apologize to Schumer for the misunderstanding. She noted that Schumer was never actually called "plus size."

"Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the coverline 'Women who Inspire Us' bc her longtime message of body positivity—& talking back to body haters—IS inspiring. (To me, too!)," she wrote. "To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. (Even size 12—frequent size of 'plus' models—is smaller than average American woman!) But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy."

Schumer too took to social media to say thank you to fans who supported her. She also clarified that she doesn't believe in labelling women.

"Thanks for your thoughts to the people who didn't tell me how I 'should feel,'" she wrote. "Bottom line seems to be that these labels are unnecessary and reserved for women #muchlove"
