Amy Schumer Discusses Kurt Metzger Controversy in Charlie Rose Interview

Amy Schumer is speaking out about the controversy surrounding comedian Kurt Metzger‘s comments on rape for this new interview with Charlie Rose.

The Inside Amy Schumer creator previously tweeted that she was “saddened and disappointed” by the comments, but that Kurt does not currently work for her as her show is on hiatus.

“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 those of mine and most of the other writers in the room,” Amy said in the interview.

Kurt‘s my friend. I love him. I’m not on Facebook so I don’t read his crazy rants. Like, he just gets something from going after people, making them mad. That is not representative of me at all,” she continued. “And, you know, I’ve asked him, just, ‘Can you just stop because it comes back to me?’ Because he writes for the show, it’s a bigger story because of our connection, and so whatever tangent he’s gone off on I have not agreed with, and it’s been really upsetting to me seeing someone that I care about hurt themselves like this. Right now, there’s no plans for the TV show to come back anytime in the near future. So nobody’s on my staff. There are no writers. I think people, you know, they want his head. They want to burn him at the stake.”

“I would love to refocus the energy and the attention on the real problem,” Amy added. “He baits people. He’s the problem, no question, but the focus is on him rather than on what the real main problem is.”
