Louis C.K. Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations: "These Stories Are True"

Tyler Durden's picture

"Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilarious and refreshing dude with a weird comb over who would say anything at all."

       — Louis C.K. in the postscript of an email blast promoting his - now canceled - web series ’Horace and Pete.’
           Later in the PS, the comedian called Trump an "insane bigot," "dangerous," and "a fucking liar."

 

And so another liberal Hollywood career is flushed down the drain, taking the express elevator of hypocricy straight to the bottom. Comedian Louis C.K., who was recently accused of sexual misconduct by five women, just said in a statement Friday that all the allegations are true:

I want to address the stories told to the New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not.These stories are true.

 

At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn't a question. It's a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.

 

I have been remorseful of my actions. And I've tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I'm aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.

 

I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it. I didn't think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it.

 

There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.

 

I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work.

 

The hardest regret to live with is what you've done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I've brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie. and every other entity that has bet on me through the years.

 

I've brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.

 

I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.

 

Thank you for reading.

Dear Lord... it's MAY I show you my penis? I assume a man is able to whip it out except for the horizontally challenged.

Cog,

I thought about the Louis CK response: I think it is actually a first step for such an incredible narcissist.  He did say he was going to listen.

Now the next step is to feel truly sorry, and ask "what can I personally do to make amends."  I've never seen a narcissist go that far - when they look in the mirror and realize that they are a monster, the image creates too much dissonance.

I don't think he is going to go there, but if he did, I would stand up and applaud.

When does it end? Now we can't ask women to look at our dicks as a comeon line? I'm completely out of ideas on how to get dates.

shovelhead's picture

I think the trick to success with that one is to at least wait for an affirmative signal before whipping it out.

Just going by Mom's advice to me as a youngster.

Very touching... and true, or so I'm told.

Edit: Hey, CD, I see great minds do think alike, with mine on a 2 minute delay.

Exactly. It's all about finding your value proposition.

From Wiki:

C.K.'s paternal grandfather, Dr. Géza Székely Schweiger, was a surgeon. Székely Schweiger was a Hungarian Jew whose family immigrated to Mexico, where he met C.K.'s paternal grandmother, Rosario Sánchez Morales.[17]

George Soros is also a Hungarian jew.

He's dumber than a bag of dicks.

I think, technically, he is  a bag of "dick."*

At least he didn't sick the Mossad on his victims.

It could be different varieties of dick (i.e. white dick, nigger dick, chink dick, etc.), in which case a bag of "dicks" would be appropriate.*

WTF is this nebulous, weasel word "Sexual Misconduct"?

Sounds like another word, coined by the Sanhedrin of Society: Academia and the MSM.

Coined for the purposes of Behavior Control, via Thought Control, via Speech Control.

(And WTF does C.K. stand for anyway?)

Katos's picture

For starters he was never funny! No one in any community held him up as person to be admired or respected! You never had any power over anyone, you simply took advantage of weaker people who you fooled into believing YOU cared for them! When you asked a women IF she wanted TO SEE YOUR Dick, you should have given them a selfie! Because you are a dick!

The confession syncs with his comedy. I don't doubt his sincerity. He does what he does and he's fairly good at it. His routines are a little twisted for my tastes but he's talented, let's give him that.

off yourself. you degenerate fuck

My personal feeling with Trump's Brother's suicide is he was hazed into the fame cult once he was destined for CEO and struggled with what he saw.
There are only rumors on this, I've been told a few times by interesting folk. - If anyone can find something solid - bonus. 

I hope the peeling back of the degenerates continues far and wide and some plea bargain to take down the real villans who buy hunting slaughter gear and use it on people. They operate in the Beltway and deserve a medieval ending.

My Avatar - for those still confused.

Interesting take- most people have some type of moral compass-  unfortunately the degenerate narcissistic sociopaths seek power and end up being politicians, CEOs, actors, entertainers, etc. Ann Barnhardt is very good at disseminating these people and their mindset.

Philanthropocalypse's picture

I looked up Ann Barnhardt.  Here is my opinion:
Peolpe are not the static containers that she portrays them to be. The world is not a black-and-white construction. People change. And certainly, people are not capable of the 24hr/365dy existence as "souless monsters" that she believes. The idea, for instance, that Kevin Spacey has never in his adult life felt real joy, or compassion, is preposterous. And who can claim to know such things?  No one should, certainly. 
The world is nowhere near as neat and tidy, as the system of beliefs this women propounds.
btw: what does 'disseminating' mean, in the context in which you used it?  I read it as "[she] is very good at [spreading widely] these people and their mindset."  Was that what you were aiming for?
