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:
We guess when Amy Schumer woke up Thursday morning, she realized the impact of her words.
After saying offhandedly — as part of a much deeper conversation about a writer's controversy — that they weren't making the Inside Amy Schumer anymore, speculation went rampant about the show being cancelled.
In the last couple days, a bit of controversy has hit Amy Schumer's hit Comedy Central show as one of the writers on the blonde beauty's show, Kurt Metzger, sarcastically commented on a story where women accused comedian Aaron Glaser of rape.
As you can imagine, Miz Schumer wasn't too pleased by this and responded by tweeting "I couldn't be more against his recent actions."
Things then took a bit of a cryptic turn when the comedienne continued by saying:
"Kurt does not work for me. He is not a writer on my show. Please stop asking me about it. His words are not mine."
While we thought that might just mean Kurt got the axe, it sounds like it could be A LOT worse as Inside Amy Schumer might actually be gone for good! Wednesday night, the Trainwreck star once again took to Twitter to announce:
As you know, Patton's Oswalt's wife Michelle McNamarapassed away suddenly in April, and he still struggles to cope with the devastating loss.
Speaking with The Times, the stand-up comedian recounted the heartbreaking morning he found the true crime author had died in her sleep -- a day he says was the "the second worst day of his life," the first being when he had to tell the couple's seven-year-old daughter, Alice, that her mother had passed.
Oswalt recalled telling his wife -- who had been working long hours investigating "The Golden State Killer" -- to "sleep until you wake up." So, McNamara took some Xanax and went to bed.
