After news that comedienne Amy Schumer is in talks to star in a live-action Barbie movie, Internet trolls quickly started hurling abuse at her on social media.

"If Barbie became obese and heinous to men, @amyschumer is perfect," read one tweet.

Others want her to "lose a lot of weight for the role".

Ironically, the movie is centred on an imperfect Barbie who lives among the 180-plus Barbie characters.

She gets kicked out of Barbieland because she is not perfect enough but discovers that being unique is an asset.

Schumer, 35, is known for encouraging women to embrace their imperfections.
