    Over the weekend, comedian Kurt Metzger unleashed a series of Facebook posts mocking "how rape should be handled." Posters were apparently trying to call out another comedian who had allegedly raped a number of women, which led to him getting banned from Upright Citizens Brigade theaters in Los Angeles, a move Metzger likened to "mob justice." So, he went after them:

    Amy Schumer slams her writer over rape comments

    Amy Schumer publicly rebuked one of her TV show’s writers, Kurt Metzger, for calling women “hens” and an “unthinking herd of mewling progressive cattle” on his Facebook page.
    Schumer tweeted on Wednesday: “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.”


    Metzger incurred the wrath of some when a male stand-up comedian was banned by the Upright Citizens Brigade because he was branded a rapist.
    “Hey, I know the cops aren’t always helpful and that rapists often don’t get convicted,” Metzger posted on his personal Facebook page on Sunday. “Still, call the cops first. Then, after they f - - k up we can do this disgusting social media lynch mob to convict some improv guy I never heard of.”
    Several female comics tweeted Schumer asking why she employed a “misogynist” with a “history of harassing women online.” And Schumer then blocked them.
    “I was such an enormous, obsessed fan. This is devastating. She has failed women,” comedienne Liz Arcury told me.
    Even after Schumer’s tweet, the feminists were still upset that Metzger hadn’t been fired. Schumer’s publicist Carrie Byalick told me: “He can’t be fired, because he’s not employed, as no one is. [‘Inside Amy Schumer’] is not in production.”
    Metzger posted: “If we ask them [the rape accusers] to merely also post a vague account of what happened before asking us to believe, that would be like re-raping their rape! These women are as brave as they are sore!”
    The alleged rapist denied the allegations and stated: “I’ll be seeking both informal and formal action to clear my name against the people who made these statements, because they are defamatory and destroying my career.”

    I'm all for a bit of rape, so long as it's consensual.

    I am not a rapist': Improv comic hits out at 'witch hunt' after he is accused of rape by anonymous women on social media and banned from the New York comedy circuit

    A male comedian has been banned from the New York comedy circuit after several women have come forward to accuse him of rape and sexual assault.
    Comedian Aaron Glaser is not permitted to work at his job at the Upright Citizens Brigade (U.C.B.) theater after several women came forward alleging he has sexually assaulted, raped or harassed them, Revelist reported.
    One of the women who claims Glaser raped her told Revelist: 'I wasn't able to give consent, I couldn't speak, it was like my body was too heavy.'
    The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, added, 'When this all came out on social media it felt like someone slapped me. I burst into tears and started shaking.'

    Glaser, who confirmed the ban, has denied the allegations in a series of Facebook posts (above) that have been taken down or deleted
    U.C.B. operates a live comedy theater and a popular improv comedy training center in New York City, where Amy Poehler, Matt Walsh and Ian Roberts kicked off their careers.
    Glaser, who hosted a monthly stand-up showcase at U.C.B., confirmed the ban and denied the allegations in a series of Facebook posts that have been taken down or deleted.
    In a post he shared to his page on Saturday, Glaser wrote that he doesn't know who the women are accusing him of the 'serious accusations.'
    'The Upright Citizen's Brigade (U.C.B.), without any hearing, without being told who was making the non-anonymous claims, without being told the facts, background, or given a single chance to say otherwise, listened to the women, and then banned me from their theaters,' Glaser wrote on Facebook.
    'They brought me in, told me 'a number of women . . . feel in the past you've raped them,' and then banned me.'
    A woman in the comedy community in New York shared a warning about Glaser in a private Facebook group for female comedians.

    'Posting this on behalf on a woman in the community, who would like to remain anonymous, but wants to warn other women, and let other women who may have raped by this man know that they're not alone,' the post starts.
    It added that 'multiple women came forward' to allege that Glaser sexually assaulted and harassed them.
    Numerous people in the comedy community have weighed in on the allegations against Glaser, including Kurt Metzger, a former writer for 'Inside Amy Schumer'.
    Metzger took to Facebook and Twitter to make his thoughts on sexual assault known that many saw as victim-blaming.
    'Hey, I know the cops aren't always helpful and that rapists often don't get convicted,' Metzger, 39, posted on his personal Facebook page on Sunday.
    'Still, call the cops first. Then, after they f****** up we can do this disgusting social media lynch mob to convict some improv guy I never heard of.'
    In another post, he wrote: 'Don't f***king complain about the police not helping if you didn't bother going to the police at all. 'Why aren't the rape kits being tested??' Because instead of actually educating women with useful information on what to do if they are victimized, you blather nonsense about 'culture' and then tell them being weak is being strong.'
    Many women called on Schumer, 35, to fire Metzger, and on Wednesday the actress assured fans that she doesn't support his beliefs.
    'I am so saddened and disappointed in Kurt Metzger,' Schumer tweeted Wednesday.

    I don't know if this guy is or is not a rapist.

    That being said remember when "comedian" meant "person who says funny things" and not "editorializing SJW"?

    Schumer obviously doesn't.

    If Schumer is walking away from her comedian job to become an SJW she needs to become better at it. Right now, she sucks at both.

    OK suppose you are a struggling comedian who landed a very cushy job as a writer for the TV show Inside Amy Schumer.. It opens up doors and helps you with your stand up career, but due to the nature of the show, you're now swallowed deep into this weird brand of feminism Amy Schumer has helped create.

    So, you're professional life is at a NOINE, but you have to consistently bite your tongue and ignore the fact that youre always surrounded by the worst kind of women on this planet.

    You can only keep bottling that shit in for so long. One day, you just might blow like Kurt Metzger did.

    Kurt has likely been around some very suspect rape accusations in the feminist comedy world he lives in. All he did was imply that there should be a little research done before was ostracize someone from a community as a rapist. Valid point, Kurt.

    Now that Amy Schumer has disavowed him, hopefully he goes looney and attacks all these PC, feminist "comedians"

    Amy Schumer's career is really weird. She starts as a stand up and a reserve on the most basic of roast shows. All of her material for her stand up and her roasts is focused on being a slut and a pig, her whole act degrading to women. She gets famous and somehow because she is fat and still wears revealing clothing, she becomes the face of feminism and female bravery?

    When did Amy Schumer become a brave, positive role model for women?

    Since most of the shit he wrote for her was pretty un-funny, maybe she'll be funnier now

    The new Stalinism. When people try to fight back, they get articles like this piece of junk from Time Magazine from the PC, controlled media.

    There are some petty, selfish, vindictive fuckers in the world, male and female. And unless you have had some embittered fuck lie about you to try and damage you because somehow you offended them or didn't give them what they wanted, you may not realize how dangerous this sort of thing can be.

    This is why 3,000 years ago Jews had some rules, and one of them was "thou shalt not bear false witness". It's essentially attempting to murder the person's reputation. Back then, it meant the difference in life and death.

    Did you see what idiot "female comic" Cameron Esposito wrote about it? She claims she didn't write his last name because she was in fear.
