"On the left is a sculpture of the goddess Aphrodite, who is renowned for her beauty. On the right is @amyschumer. What a wonderful resemblance between two beautiful women. So many women and young girls are shamed by the media and fashion industry for not having a flat stomach and not being a size zero," the post reads. "But look, the goddess of beauty is portrayed here with stomach rolls and doesn't have a perfectly smooth, toned body. I want to remind everyone that they do not have to be a Victoria's Secret model to be a beautiful goddess with a beautiful body. Your body is not bad, ugly, or wrong. Embrace your inner goddess. #bodypositive #amyschumer #everybodyisagoodbody #Aphrodite."

While the photo has inspired many, it also drew a fair amount of haters.

Whitney, the 22-year-old college student who shared the original photo, shared a follow-up post to Instagram addressing the critics, writing, "I never expected to get so much attention on my last picture and I never expected Amy Schumer to like/ comment on it. I absolutely love that people are finding inspiration in it. However, like all good things, the internet must s**t on it."

Of course, there might be no one more used to dealing with Internet trolls than Schumer!

Last week, the actress captioned a swimsuit photo, "I hope you find some joy in your lives today in a human interaction and not just in writing unkind things to a stranger you've never met who triggers something in you that makes you feel powerless and alone."
