Amy Schumer is putting a close to the Glamour controversy in the best way.
The Trainwreck star shared a new bikini Instagram video on Tuesday, writing, "Thanks for your thoughts to the people who didn't tell me how I "should feel" Bottom line seems to be that these labels are unnecessary and reserved for women #muchlove."
The video, which depicts the comedian running a kite along the coastline, comes after Glamour responded to an earlier post by Schumer, calling out the publication for seemingly alluding that her body is "plus size" in a recent issue.
"I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size," Schumer wrote. "@glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size?"
"We love Amy Schumer, & would never want to offend her. To be clear, @glamourmag special edition never called her plus-size," Glamour Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive said in response to Schumer's concerns. "Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the coverline “Women who Inspire Us” because her longtime message of body positivity—& talking back to body haters—IS inspiring. (To me, too!)."

"To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. (Even size 12—frequent size of “plus” models—is smaller than average American woman!)," Leive added. "But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy."

Leive's sentiments line up with the statement a Glamour spokesperson gave to ET, saying, "First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too -- which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year. The cover line on this special edition -- which is aimed at women size 12 and up -- simply says 'Women Who Inspire Us,' since we believe her passionate and vocal message of body positivity IS inspiring, as is the message of the many other women, of all sizes, featured. The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way."
