Amy Schumer has recently responded to audience inquiries regarding her “puffy” facial appearance during her appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The View.

During her appearances on both talk shows to promote the second season of her show, Life & Beth, the comedian found herself addressing not the upcoming concept for the series, but rather viewers’ fixation on her facial appearance.

While speculation arose about whether the star had undergone surgery, others expressed genuine concern for her well-being.

“One person on X, formerly Twitter, posted alongside a clip of the star from Fallon’s talk show, ‘I’m going to need all surgeons and doctors to weigh in here. Serious question, what happened to Amy’s face? Is it normally this size?'”

Another individual added, “What did Amy Schumer do to her face? One might could at least give her she had a cute-ish kinda face before. She did something to her cheeks? Eyes?”

A third person stated, “Damn Amy Schumer’s face is HUGE. wtf when did she get like this? Lol. #TheView.”

However, some stepped in to defend the star.

“This individual, known as X-user, expressed their disdain for Amy Schumer, stating, ‘I have no tolerance for Amy Schumer, but why should anyone concern themselves with someone else’s appearance? It’s a matter that’s irrelevant to anyone but themselves.'”

Another participant added their thoughts, remarking, “While we may collectively hold negative opinions about Amy Schumer due to her perceived shortcomings, I don’t believe it’s appropriate to mock her for facial swelling. There could be underlying medical reasons such as medication usage, like steroids, which can cause such effects. She might be dealing with conditions like lupus or others, but it’s uncertain.”

Now, the 42-year-old has turned to Instagram to put an end to all the rumors once and for all.

“…Watch both full seasons of @lifeandbethhulu, and I want to express my gratitude for everyone’s engagement regarding my facial appearance,” she initiated in the extensive promotional post. “I’ve been accustomed to receiving feedback and scrutiny about my looks, like most women, for nearly two decades.”

The celebrity then revealed her ongoing battle with endometriosis, a condition characterized by the growth of tissue similar to the uterine lining outside the uterus. This affliction can cause significant pain for women and may result in fertility challenges.

“And indeed, it does appear puffier than usual at the moment. I’m grappling with endometriosis, an autoimmune condition that I believe every woman should be informed about. There are certain medical and hormonal elements affecting me presently, but I’m coping,” she proceeded, underscoring, “Throughout history, women’s bodies have received considerably less medical research attention compared to men.”

“The book ‘All in Her Head’ effectively delves into this notion. I staunchly support the idea that a woman should never feel compelled to justify her physical appearance or offer explanations for it. Nevertheless, I perceived this as an opportunity to advocate for the significance of self-love and accepting one’s own skin.”

Schumer then shifted the focus back to her show, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing the celebration of women’s accomplishments rather than scrutinizing their appearances.

“I experience days like any other woman/person where I feel confident and empowered, and then there are days when I want to retreat,” she shared. “But through it all, I feel resilient, beautiful, and incredibly proud of this TV show I’ve created—writing, starring in, and directing it. Maybe, just maybe, we can redirect our attention to that for a while.”

“Despite having backup dancers on Fallon, it seems my face steals the spotlight, haha! Anyway, I hope you find joy in life and enjoy watching Beth. With love and solidarity, Amy.”

Referring to the illness mentioned earlier, the mother-of-one described endometriosis as the “invisible pain” in the 2022 docuseries “The Check Up with Dr. David Agus.”

“You know, for months, I had been complaining of pain… it was just this invisible pain. There’s always this tendency to dismiss a woman’s experience as being overly dramatic,” she expressed.

“I’ve endured so much pain throughout my life, you know, not just during the week of my period,” the comedian, who underwent a hysterectomy (surgical removal of her uterus) for the condition in 2021, added.

Let this serve as a lesson to all those individuals who feel compelled to comment on others’ appearances.
