Thanks for everyone’s input on my face: Amy Schumer

Writer-actor Amy Schumer has hit back at negative comments about her face, saying it’s “puffer than normal” because she is going through “medical and hormonal” changes due to her endometriosis.

Schumer appeared on The Tonight Show and Good Morning America to promote her new show “Life and Beth” on Hulu but her facial appearance sparked a discussion on social media.

In an Instagram post, the 42-year-old opened up about the health issue she is facing while also criticising the the undue focus on a woman’s appearance.

“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,” Schumer wrote in an Instagram post alongside the poster for the second season of her show.

“There are some medical and hormonal things going on in my world right now, but I’m okay.”

Endometriosis, according to the World Health Organisation, is a disease in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It can cause severe pain in the pelvis and make it harder to get pregnant.
