On Wednesday, Amy Schumer responded to criticism about controversial comments made by a former writer for Inside Amy Schumer, and seemed to say that the show was ending. Comedian Kurt Metzger, Schumer's friend and one of the original writers for her show, had posted on Facebook this week about a case involving a comic accused of rape. Many thought Metzger's language was cruel toward rape victims and were disturbed by his past history of harassing women online, and they wanted to know how Schumer could justify keeping him on staff. (Metzger has since attempted to clarify his position on Facebook, saying he is merely disturbed by the social media witch hunt and thinks rape victims have a duty to go to police.)
