The comedienne began making Inside Amy Schumer, which comprises of skits, stand-up comedy segments and on-the-street chats with strangers, in 2013 and in January (16) Comedy Central executives renewed the series for a fifth season, set to air in 2017.

However, Amy appeared to reveal she will no longer be making the show while she was trying to distance herself from friend and former show contributor Kurt Metzger after he made controversial comments about sexual assault.

After writing tweets voicing her disapproval of Kurt’s words, she wrote, “I didn’t fire Kurt. He isn’t a writer for my show because we aren’t making the show anymore. There are no writers for it.”

She then retweeted a fan who wrote she will “miss your show”, which has won two Emmys and a Peabody award.

Representatives for Amy and the channel are yet to clarify whether she means the show has been cancelled or if she just means she isn’t making the show at the current time.

Amy has become increasingly busy and famous in the past year thanks to her 2015 movie Trainwreck, her popular sketch show, and 2016 memoir The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. She is also shooting a movie with Goldie Hawn that she co-wrote, has penned a script with Jennifer Lawrence and is taking her stand-up comedy tour to the U.K. and Europe for the first time from the end of August (16).

Amy took to Twitter on Wednesday night (17Aug16) to condemn Kurt, who wrote scathing comments about women who had accused another comedian of assault, and Amy responded by tweeting, “I am so saddened and disappointed in Kurt Metzger. He is my friend and a great writer and I couldn’t be more against his recent actions… 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.”
