Playing Amy Schumer Responds to 'Inside Amy Schumer' Cancellation Rumors, Says She's Working on Other Projects

Fans of Inside Amy Schumer started to worry when the comedian sent out a tweet that many thought was hinting that her Emmy-winning show was coming to an end after four seasons.

The cancellation rumors came after Schumer responded to controversial tweets made by Inside Amy Schumer writer Kurt Metzger, who spoke out against rape victims that wait years to come forward with their stories. Schumer tweeted that she was "so saddened and disappointed" by Metzger's comments but insisted that he did not work for her anymore.

"He is not a writer on my show," she insisted. "Please stop asking me about it. His words are not mine."

Schumer then added: "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."

The Trainwreck star also retweeted a fan who wrote: "@amyschumer You're the best, and we'll miss your show. And Twitter sucks sometimes."

After fans freaked out over the tweets, the 35-year-old comedian clarified her comments, while also promoting her newly released book. "I'm grateful @ComedyCentral is giving me this time to work on other projects," she wrote on Thursday morning. "Now please grab my book #TheGirlWithTheLowerBackTattoo for now."

In her book, Schumer recounts her own experience with domestic abuse when she was in her early 20s. "I'm a strong-ass woman, not someone most people picture when they think 'abused woman,'" she writes. "It can happen to anyone. You're not alone if it's happening to you, and you're not exempt if it hasn't happened to you."
