Amy Schumer is showing off her bikini body.

On Monday, the “Trainwreck” star rocked a black-and-white two-piece as she posed alongside two American flags on the beach.

While Schumer, 35, joked about being an “American treasure” in the snap, she seemed at ease as she put her body on display for an international audience, especially since her figure has caused controversy in the past.

To promote National Gun Violence Awareness Day last month, Schumer made the initiative all about herself as she dropped her bottoms for the cameras. Weeks prior,the actress slammed Glamour magazine for featuring her in their “Chic at Any Size” special issue.

“I think there’s nothing wrong with being plus size. Plus size is considered a size 16 in America,” Schumer wrote on Instagram. “I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type and thinking that is plus size?”

Though Glamour did apologize, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Cindi Levine, released a statement to clarify the plus-size comments.

“We love Amy Schumer, & would never want to offend her. To be clear, @glamourmag special edition never called her plus-size,” Levine tweeted. “To be clear, size 6-8 is not plus. (Even size 12—frequent size of ‘plus’ models—is smaller than average American woman!) But women of all sizes can be inspired by one another’s words. So sorry if implication was otherwise, Amy.”
