Amy Schumer Opens Up About Being Raped & Fearing For Her Life In Past Abusive Relationship

| Filed under: Howard SternBookzScary!Amy SchumerGirl Power

Amy Schumer gets candid talking past relationships.

Amy Schumer is bravely speaking up about her past abusive relationships.

As we previously reported, the actress revealed in an interview with Marie Claire her first sexual experience wasn't consensual, and also opened up about it in her new memoir, The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo.

Following the release of the book of personal essays, Amy went on air with Howard Stern on Tuesday to get even more candid about rape culture.

Sharing how her ex-boyfriend had raped her while she was sleeping, the 35-year-old explained:

"I think it's important to talk about. It's made me feel less alone when other women have come forward about being sexually assaulted. And also because you know it's not this perfect rape. People, they want you to have been raped perfectly, and they want you to be a perfect victim. People hear me say that and they go, ‘No, she's like a slut' and ‘I bet she knew' — like, right away, you start doubting. We're so critical and it makes victims really not wanna speak up, and so I think it's me saying, 'Look, I didn't have a perfect rape.'"

Such a great point, especially since she recently spoke out about writer Kurt Metzger's controversial comments about rape.

The Trainwreck starlet also recalled being in an abusive relationship in her 20s and actually fearing for her life. Like she revealed in her memoir, Schumer added:

"At first I would get hurt by accident, it would be like he'd grab me too hard and then I'd get a bad bruise, or he'd like push me a little and I'd like fall into something and get a worse injury, and these things I could kind of excuse."

Thankfully, she realized she needed out of the relationship:

"It just hit me like a ton of bricks, he's going to kill me eventually, and I need to get out of here. And honestly a big thought of why I did was for my little sister. I just thought, I cannot — I can't do this to her. I can't let her get this phone call."

Hopefully Amy's candid conversation will help more victims come forward and make rape less of a culture.

| Filed under: ViolenceSexAmy SchumerControversy

ICYMI, Kurt slammed Upright Citizens Brigade's decision to ban comedian Aaron Glaser, after an internal investigation into allegations that he had raped multiple women in the comedy community.

And now, Miz Schumer is speaking to Charlie Rose about the upsetting remarks made by her friend, saying in a new clip posted on Thursday:

"One of the reasons he's such a great writer and such a great contributor to our television show is because his views are so different from that of mine and most of the other writers in the room."

While Mr. Metzger has worked on her Comedy Central series in the past, she explained that he's not currently her writer because there are "no plans for the TV show to come back anytime in the near future."

So, the blonde beauty doesn't want people to associate his social media rants with her own beliefs, adding:
