It’s getting impossible for us to not love Amy Schumer, right? She can be crass (in the best way), outspoken, and she’s really got that whole comedy thing down pat. And Tuesday night at the Glamour UK Women of the Year ceremony in London, she proved that she’s also a solid ambassador for the everyday woman.
Glamour UK dubbed Schumer their ‘Trailblazer of the Year,’ (because she’s a badass trailblazer, duh) and when the comedian took the stage to receive the award from Absolutely Fabulous‘ Jennifer Saunders, she took five minutes to give one of the filthiest, funniest and most inspirational acceptance speeches of all time.
Schumer opened with a one-liner about being honoured as a normal person by the usually supermodel-centric Glamour Magazine. “I’m probably like 160 pounds right now and I can catch a d%*k whenever I want, like, that’s the truth. It’s not a problem!”
Schumer then proceeded to call all out pretty much all of the important people at the event, rip women’s magazines for making “you feel bad just for being born with a p&*%y” and told hilarious anecdotes about finding success despite constantly feeling out of place.
Watch Amy slay her acceptance speech in vintage-Schumer fashion. Warning, you should probably put on headphones if you’re at the office. Things are about to get NSFW!
