Amy Schumer on Kurt Metzger's Rape Rants: 'That Is Not Representative of Me at All'

Originally posted 08/18/2016 09:30PM

[EMBEDCODE {}] Amy Schumer has expressed her disappointment in friend and Inside Amy Schumer writer Kurt Metzger.

Though Schumer explained that Metzger's "out-there male perspective" is a "great" contribution to her Comedy Central show, she wants "online trollers" and fans to not "attach" her to his recent Facebook rant about rape.

In a recent statement posted to Facebook, Metzger clarified his earlier comments. "My point, which I could have made more tactfully, was this: Why did the story of what actually happened come out AFTER this guy is declared a rapist?" he wrote. "I will listen to ANY victim's account. All that was given initially is 'psssst Aaron's a rapist pass it on.' My point was that no one seems disturbed by this. No one sees that down the road, next time we might get it wrong."

Earlier, Schumer told Charlie Rose about being associated with Metzger's rant, "That is not representative of me at all." She added, "I've asked him, '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."
