Anti-Trump Amy Schumer to play feminist Barbie role and Twitter immediately throws down on her

Comedian Amy Schumer received a rude reception in the Twitter-sphere following the announcement Friday that she would play the leading role in the Sony live-action flick “Barbie.”

The movie, due out in 2018, will reportedly “put a contemporary spin on beauty, feminism and identity,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The amply proportioned comedian quickly found herself on the receiving end of a fat-shaming backlash from social media users struggling to see the connection between Schumer and the popular Mattel doll.

Here’s a sampling of not so politically correct responses from Twitter:
