Amy Schumer: Accused of Body-Shaming Khloe Kardashian!

by at .

Whether she's awarding herself "best body" or dancing with Jennifer Lawrence at a Billy Joel concert, Amy Schumer usually can do no wrong.

Unfortunately, the 34-year-old comedy icon in the making may have stepped on some toes with her recent remarks about the ever-changing appearances of the girls in the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Amy hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend, and she took on the Kard clan in her opening monologue.

"We have to be a role model for these little girls, because who do they have?" Amy said. "All they have, literally, is the Kardashians. And -- she doesn't have a Malala poster in her room, trust me. Is that a great message for little girls? 

A whole family of women who take the faces they were born with as, like, a light suggestion? No! And, like, we used to have Khloe. Like, Khloe was ours, right? But then Khloe, she like, lost half her body weight. She just, she lost it -- she lost a Kendall, who weighs nothing. I want good role models.

Some folks on the Internet seem to believe that Amy overstepped her bounds with her comments about Khloe's fluctuating weight.

Given Schumer's long-standing commitment to sending a body-positive message to women and young girls, we highly doubt she intended any offense. 

Plus, if anyone has left themselves open for commentary on their appearances, it's the Kardashian gals, who have never been shy about their shared fondness for plastic surgery, fad diets and foolish fitness trends like waist training

At the end of the day, Amy is a comedian, the bit was funny, and she deserves credit for sparking Monday morning conversations about the 90-minute dinosaur known as SNL.

Heck, Miley Cyrus hosted last week, and Amy is the one who got people talking. Impressive!
