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. — Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) August 18, 2016
@amyschumer You’re the best, and we’ll miss your show. And Twitter sucks sometimes.

But that didn’t quell the social media demand that Schumer fire him from the Peabody Award and Emmy-winning Comedy Central sketch show. She had been criticized for remaining silent in response to the Upright Citizens Brigade’s (UCB Theatre) alleged banning of comedian Aaron Glaser, who was accused of sexual assault in a private Facebook group for female comedians.
She then tweeted, “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.”
