"Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday welcomed guest Amy Schumer.

Schumer — actor, comedian; star of "Inside Amy Schumer," "Trainwreck" — was recently featured, without consent, in Glamour magazine's list of inspiring plus-size women. So she took to social media to sort of crowd-source her reaction, and in so doing, sparked debate over size labels and the like.

"For those of you who don't known who I am, I'm a famous plus-size model," Schumer said during her "Tonight Show" appearance.

"I love Glamour, honestly," she amended. "They've been so nice to me. They've done so many great things for women."

"But what I learned is people don't like being classified as plus-size," she continued. "We don't need these labels ... It should just say what size you are."
