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.”
