Amy Schumer wishes trolls a happy 2016

AMY Schumer has challenged her Internet trolls to "find happiness" in 2016.

The 'Trainwreck' actress has had her fair share of nasty comments from people on social networking sites, but chose to take the high road when it came to passing on her New Year wishes to these negative posters.

She wrote: "Happy New Years to internet trolls. I hope you find happiness this year. Nourishing relationships and a life you can be proud of."

Amy previously found herself at the centre of cruel comments about her weight back in February.

Movie critic Jeff Wells labelled her chubby after seeing 'Trainwreck', and added: "There's no way she'd be an object of heated romantic interest in the real world."

But instead of letting the criticism get her down, Amy decided to hit back with a semi nude picture.

She wrote alongside the snap: "I am a size 6 and have no plans of changing. This is it. Stay on or get off. Kisses!"

Later this year, Amy stripped off for the infamous Pirelli calendar.

In the images shot by world famous photographer Annie Leibovitz, Amy is seen sitting on a stool wearing nothing but her underwear, clutching a takeaway cup of coffee.

Clearly delighted with the final product, Amy tweeted: "Beautiful, gross, strong, thin, fat, pretty, ugly, sexy, disgusting, flawless, woman."

Annie added of the 2016 images, which also featured Serena Williams: "I wanted the pictures to show the women exactly as they are, with no pretence."
