Comedy Central has not commented on Schumer's statement.
In an unexpected turn of events, comedian Amy Schumer appears to have quit her popular U.S. series Inside Amy Schumer. After blocking numerous more abusive critics, Schumer responded to the situation with a series of messages.
In a series of tweets, Schumer distanced herself from Metzger, saying that while she considers him a friend and an vast talent, she in no way condones his recent behavior.
Schumer said that she "couldn't be be more against his recent actions" but that he was still a great friend and writer.

Amy Schumer tweeted that her Comedy Central show "Inside Amy Schumer" is over. The writer made the comments following the Upright Citizens Brigade's alleged banning of comedian Aaron Glaser, who was accused of sexual assault in a private Facebook group for female comedians. Metzger suggested that the public should not be so quick to believe women, writing: "Guys I have just heard some disturbing news, this guy Jiff Dilfyberg is a rapist!"
In his posts, Metzger scolds women who claim they were raped but don't go to police.
"I wasn't able to give consent, I couldn't speak, it was like my body was too heavy", one woman told Revelist. There's no official word from Comedy Central on whether Inside Amy Schumer is cancelled or if Schumer has left the series.
Metzger's IMDB page lists him as a writer for the show's latest season.
Schumer is in the midst of promoting her candid new collection of essays, "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo", released Tuesday.
But she'll have to take a break from all that to show up at the Emmy Awards next month. Please stop asking me about it. "We are slated for a season 5 but not in the foreseeable future", she said in another.
Amy added: 'Kurt does not work for me.
Do you think it's time for the funnywoman to end her show?!
