In April, Schumer was fuming after Glamour magazine referred to her as “plus sized” in one of its issues, and during an interview with Cosmopolitan, Graham said she thought that was a double standard because Schumer makes money off joking about her weight.

“I can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry,” the 28-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model said.

“You thrive on being a big girl, but when you’re grouped in with us, you’re not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard.” (RELATED: Amy Schumer Is Furious That A Magazine Said She Was ‘Plus Size’)

Though Graham is a size 16, she does not consider herself plus size.

“Just because I’m not calling myself plus-size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is.”

“I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before — a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful.” (RELATED: The First Plus Size Model Just Made The Cover Of SI Swimsuit: ‘This Is Epic’)
