Amy Schumer's days with Comedy Central may be numbered. After blocking numerous more abusive critics, Schumer responded to the situation with a series of messages. "There are no writers for it", Schumer wrote late Wednesday. "He is a friend and a great writer and I couldn't be more against his recent actions".
"I didn't fire Kurt".
Amy Schumer spoke out against former "Inside Amy Schumer" writer Kurt Metzger and his comments about rape, and hinted at the cancellation of the award-winning Comedy Central show. He is not a writer on my show.
Turns out Schumer had plenty to tweet about, though in distancing herself from Metzger's outburst, she inadvertently suggested that Inside Amy Schumer's fifth season was no longer happening.
Metzger claimed Glaser's alleged victim of not going to the police with her complaint, calling her "weak" and of "talking nonsense". Schumer said she was not filming new episodes because of a comedy tour and "writing more for the next year at least".
"I wasn't able to give consent, I couldn't speak, it was like my body was too heavy", one woman told Revelist.
But the amusing quips stopped this past week, amid controversy with one of the show's former writers, Kurt Metzger. Schumer got pulled into the controversy because Metzger writes for Inside Amy Schumer. Please stop asking me about it.
"We are slated for a Season 5", she reassured fans, "but not in the foreseeable future".
Schumer deleted her tweets, and her reps have declined to comment on the situation, so at this point, no one really knows what's going on. She is now promoting her memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, while shooting a new movie with Goldie Hawn. There may enough on her plate at this point that she doesn't need the show, and sometimes ending early has a more positive impact down the run.
The actress behind the Comedy Central show confirmed via Twitter that the series has been brought to an end.
