Amy Schumer was less than thrilled to be featured in Glamour magazine’s first ever “plus size” edition.

And, after Schumer went public with her disapproval, the fashion mag issued a (sort of) apology, saying they were “sorry” if they “offended her in any way.”

However, they made sure to point out they never actually described her as plus size, because, well, let’s get really pedantic about it shall we?

Basically, Glamour are SorryNotSorry Amy.

Then, lower down, there’s a sub-heading, “Women who inspire us” which lists Schumer, along with Graham, Melissa McCarthy and Adele.

Graham was thrilled by her inclusion—which, presumably, she had been paid for, as she is the cover model.

The 34-year-old posted on Instagram:

I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women.

Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8.

@glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me.

We love Amy! amy schumer plus size glamour

Glamour’s Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Leive, responded to Schumer via a series of Tweets:

We love Amy Schumer, & would never want to offend her. To be clear, @glamourmag special edition never called her plus-size…

Her 2015 cover story was included in the edition, aimed at sizes 12 and up, with the cover line ‘Women who Inspire Us’ bc…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!)

But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy

A Glamour magazine spokesperson continued with the company line, issuing the following statement:

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.

As the Washington Post points out,  Schumer’s not the only celeb speaking out against being “plus-sized” by the media.

A number of high profile females have questioned what the true meaning is behind the term, pointing out it’s just another way of labeling women by size, and is in no way “empowering”.

There’s even a social media campaign decrying the term, using the hashtag #DropthePlus
