UCB was contacted, and notified Glaser that he was banned from their theaters.
The comedian took to his own Facebook in a now-deleted post that's circulating around the internet, denying the accusations, and calling out "internet vigilantes:"
Metzger, who has a history of disturbing rape jokes and rhetoric, took it upon himself to post a "satirical" Facebook status criticizing the whole situation--seemingly sympathizing with Glaser--and condemning rape victims who don't report their assaults to police.
The comedian, who hasn't tweeted since late last night, has gone on an additional Twitter tirade, defending his post, and making fun of pretty much any other comedian or writer who has criticized him, including this piece by writer Nikki Black, called
Kurt Metzger Needs to Shut Up.
Many were waiting for Schumer, who's built a career out of lampooning misogyny and the ridiculous stigma of female sexuality, to comment on the matter.
This afternoon, Amy tweeted out a response to the unfortunate situation:
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. — Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) August 17, 2016
Schumer recently revealed toMarie Clairethat the first time she had sex was non-consensual.
I didn't think about it until I started reading my journal again. When it happened, I wrote about it almost like a throwaway. It was like, 'And then I looked down and realized he was inside me.' He was saying, 'I'm so sorry' and 'I can't believe I did this.
She also mentioned another time a former boyfriend forced himself on her, despite her pleas for him to stop.
