Everyone is Losing it Over Amy Schumer’s Pirelli Calendar Photo

Each year for the past five decades, Pirelli has published a yearly calendar showcasing a number of influential women from that year. While the pics were mostly nudes in the past, Pirelli, like Playboy, did away with that tradition. For the 2016 calendar, all of the women were told that they did not have to appear nude.

However, that didn’t stop comedian Amy Schumer from posing in nothing but underwear, heels and a coffee cup. This photo is displayed for the month of December in the calendar, and Schumer posted it on her social handles with the caption “Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman. Thank you

Her caption pretty much hit the nail on the head. Supporters of Amy and feminists everywhere are calling her brave and beautiful. However her haters, much like this conservative anti-feminist blogger, have been bashing her, calling her disgusting and telling her to leave her clothes on. In his open letter to “fat feminists”, Steven Crowder compares Amy to Lena Dunham, expressing that men have no sexual desire for women of their kind. He states “Women don’t have to be funny, because men want to get naked with you anyway. Unless you look like Lena Dunham. Then, we simply want to end the pain”.

Crowder is not the only one bashing Schumer. There are a million hateful tweets, posts and open letters going out to Schumer and feminists everywhere. Like this random dude.

Nonetheless, Amy has gotten a ton of support from credited sources. And they’re not just feminists. Women, men, gay and straight, you name it.

Then theres this guy, who could literally care less about the naked body, but is offended by her choice in coffee cup.

No matter what your stance is on the photo in the Pirelli calendar, I think everyone can come to one solid conclusion:

Amy doesn’t give a fuck.
