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.

Hypocrisy is always seen clearly by the beholder and never by the hypocrite.

You mean that "Dick with Ears" look?

How does this sh*t work with you white dudes. You just show it and the white bi*tches submit? That's all there is? Damn! Somebody let a brother know. I'm gonna drive my food truck around town naked from now on.

Louis CK may be pale, but he ain't "white".

Please don't paint those of white christian european descent with the degeneracy of the jews.

slickrick's picture

Hold up Mena, what are you saying? No white dudes got puntang swinging their Johnsons? Then who are those women looking at the menu?

Mena Arkansas's picture

What I am saying is jews pretend to be whites when it serves their interest.

slickrick's picture

I'm down with what you are saying. It's not the dick that I'm curious about, it's those bitches looking at it. I'm not judging one drop. To each his own, but if there is some secrect white/whatever hookup thing going on, please do share. It gets lonely driving a food truck for ten hours each day.

Mena Arkansas's picture

That's what I'm saying, it's a jewish thing. So you would need to ask them.

And the women either got innocently cornered or they are whores. We got our share.

(((They))) aren't exactly like the rest of us white dudes.  If we did that once we'd be in jail just like you.

slickrick's picture

Yes, yes and yes. I feel you my little cracker. But you must admit that this shitty comedian is in trouble because he got caught. As you would be if the white girl turn you in for dropping the Johnson. Nobody is arguing that. The discussion is in the realm of the hoes that gave it a tug. That is all I want to know. How to identify them so as the Johnson can properly be presented withouth ending up in trouble. These white/whatever dudes could not have invented the Johnson fishing technique. They learned it from somebody.

You know? ... you're really pretty funny. Are you really black? I hope so because ZeroHedge, and me, really need to be reminded from time to time why we should be more temperate in our language, or at least be aware when we are hurling blanket injunctions that may not fit all.

Fuck this fucking hypocrite. Never found him funny & have to say finding out his bullshit was just that is kinda sweet. 

(Altho I'm a little annoyed at myself for not being able to not say so - bad form on my part but ...)

never found him funny?

you should YT his skit about stealing balance scales in high school & trading them to dealers for grass.

absolute hilarity. funniest teenage screw-up story ever.

Jewish?

If so, CDC needs to launch an investigation into this extremely widespread moral disease named Judaism.

I don't understand the reasoning. I've never had any issue with women and I don't have tens of millions. I'd be able to do whatever I want with tens of millions. I just don't get it. Why do stupid shit? You can screw just about anyone with that type of money. You can hire anyone to play your little games. It's so friggin' stupid. 

MsCreant's picture

The deal is that it's not enough. Millions might be enough for you and I. Think of the void you must have inside to do this shit. Empty. No direction. Desperate autopilot, following your urges. 

He has, at least, not outright attacked someone. Well, until we hear he has. 

This guy is pathetic, exhibitionists are. Weinstein is something else, not this. I want a bullet in Weinstein's brain. This guy, not so much.

Masterbation is one of his bits. I'm not surprized by this at all. In fact, it's really funny and these women need to lighten up.

Sorry, but I don't think what he did was that big a deal.  It was literally a yes or no question.  However, wacking it in front of a chick is about the dumbest thing I've heard of.  Go for the goods.  Buy dinner, be funny, be charming, and go for the gold.  Is anyone a man anymore?

Beating the bishop is supposed to be between a man and his computer. I hold that truth to be self evident.

I understand y'all hate Louis because of his reactionary bullshit towards Trump as well as his support for Hillary. I used to be a big fan of him and I am still a fan of his comedy, but I lost a lot of respect for him after he supported Hillary (I prefer my apolitical comedians ala Bill Burr, Bill Hicks, and George Carlin). That said, the NYT "expose" was sensationalist bullshit. Sure, the guy is a fucking creep and should rightly be called out for it, and probably even deserves to lose some fans and shows. But none of what he did amounts to sexual assault. It is a distraction meant to water down the message of real victims who have actually been assaulted and/or raped - men, women, and children alike. Don't turn into the reactionaries who jump down a man's throat for giving women compliments or who are willing to start World War 3 over a lost election while simultaneously ignoring the war crimes of the previous administration.

So who is going to ask these women if he asked for their permission to show them his junk?
I bet no one asks them. Doesn't fit the narrative. There they were. Sharing a joint and a bottle of wine.
Then he pops the question. "Wanna see my wee-wee?"

His latest movie is too close to the Director's cut of "Eyes Wide Shut".
