Is Amy Schumer‘s Comedy Central show over?

The “Trainwreck” star posted a cryptic tweet Wednesday night suggesting that “Inside Amy Schumer” is done after four seasons.

“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,” she wrote.

The demise of “Inside Amy Schumer” would be very unexpected, as it was given a fifth season renewal by Comedy Central in June. Reps for Schumer and Comedy Central have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The message came after she tweeted about Kurt Metzger, a writer and performer on “Inside Amy Schumer” who has been writing lengthy online posts about another comedian accused of rape.

“I am so saddened and disappointed in Kurt Metzger,” Schumer tweeted on Wednesday morning. “He is my friend and a great writer and I couldn’t be more against his recent actions.”

Metzger caught criticism online after he began writing about Aaron Glaser, a comedian associated with the improv-comedy mainstay Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in New York City. Multiple women accused him of sexual assault, and he was banned from performing at UCB after an internal investigation. Glaser has not been charged and has denied the allegations.

Metzger seemed to defend Glaser in days of  posting, such as in criticizing the fact that none of Glaser’s accusers went to the police. He used the apparently made-up name “Jiff Dilfyberg” as a substitute for Glaser’s name:

“Guys I have just heard some disturbing news, this guy Jiff Dilfyberg is a rapist! I know because women said it and that’s all I need! Never you mind who they are. They are women! ALL women are as reliable as my bible! A book that, much like a women, is incapable of lying!”

Schumer was bombarded with questions from angry commentators asking why she had hired Metzger, which she responded to in a string of diplomatic tweets before dropping the bombshell above.

But at least she ended the day peacefully …
