  • Why is Comedy Central still employing “Inside Amy Schumer” staff writer Kurt Metzger given his disturbing behavior towards women on Twitter and his admission on Facebook that he once choked an ex-girlfriend? The comic, who has been vocal about defending any and all rape jokes, has been accused by Jezebel blogger Lindy West and Tiger Beatdown blogger Sady Doyle of making impersonator social media accounts of them.

In the clip, Amy and a gaggle of pals (including “Saturday Night Live”‘s Abby Elliott) exchange compliments on everything from clothing items to job promotions to pregnancy news, but each is, uh, incapable of accepting the praise graciously. The sketch is hilarious because it absurdly illustrates something that is totally true — by and large, many women have a hard time accepting compliments without at least disparaging themselves in some way first.
