Amy Schumer "Feels Pretty" and It's Causing Social Media to Freak

Not just that, she seems to have gained a good 25-30 pounds in the process. Just take a look at the before and after Jeffrey Wells did below [Article]
But if you think this movie won't escape the wrath of social media witch hunts then think again. The movie is already being accused of "white privilege," being  "too-white," and Schumer actually not being all that fat.
