Amy Schumer Sorta Kinda, Not Really Apologizes for Her Taylor Swift Thigh Gap Remark

Can anyone take a joke these days?

Amy Schumer is no stranger to controversy, but even she couldn’t predict the shitstorm a silly Instagram picture would start. On Tuesday (Feb. 16, 2016), Schumer posted a picture to Instagram of in her bikini hanging out on the beach with a friend with the caption, “Taylor that’s not a thigh gap. This is a thigh gap.”

Taylor that’s not a thigh gap. This is a thigh gap

Almost immediately the picture filled with comments accusing Schumer of skinny shaming Taylor Swift. But Schumer isn’t here for any of it. Last night (Feb. 17, 2016), the comedian posted an apology of sorts, mostly telling people to get a sense of humor. 


For her part, Swift hasn’t commented Schumer’s Instagram, but we think she’s dealt with more than enough controversy for one week.
