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.

Give him an oscar! That was some exquisite acting!!

Mainstream media, in all its forms, is dead. It's spokespeople are liars, bigots, finks and criminals. They have no moral authority to speak down to anyone. And they seem to be coming to the horrible realisation that nobody is listening, or paying, for their bullshit anymore.

Perhaps, in general, a woman's allowing or denying of sex is based on calculations that factor in the perceived power, success, financial condition, or status of the male.  If a guy falls into success, why is it a crime to parlay that into sexual relations.  Who wouldn't?

A Lady, wouldn’t.

Lesser women (or men), would.

This guy is the shittiest comedian.  I'm dumbfounded people pay money to go and listen to this arsehole.  That said I can't even think of a comic in the last 20 years that's been funny.

Doug Stanhope,,, Wise like the immortal G. Carlin,,, Just a bit cruder,,,

 

And I have never heard of this Louis CK guy ever before,,,

Moustache Rides's picture

I meant new comics.  All those guys have been around for ages.  They're the last of the good comics imo.  This new generation of comics is just crap.

Nothing to see here, kids. Just remember, Mel Gibson is a sexist, a racist, and an anti-Semite.

Anyone who disagrees with me would have supported Hitler. Or married Hitler. Or played cards with Hitler. Or smoked a stogie with Hitler. Or...

/sarc

The second these stool samples bring “Hitler!” into any discourse, they’ve discredited themselves.

FADE them.

In a few years ... no more Dicks around ...

Because they all committed suicide ... to appease SJWs, feminists, liberals and every other man-hater groups on this planet ...

No need to force yourself on a woman but this is getting a ridiculous trend... is it fashionable or something??

However, if I ever gave a shit, Louis C.K would be the first person I would give it to.

Dear Louis,
I read your heart rending, gut spilling story, then realized you never apologized to anyone in the rendition. Not to Trump, not to the women. All I read was, "I, I, I". You're still a sleazy creep.

Louis CK, a Mexican Jew. You know, the preferred ilk of Bannon and the fake conservatives.

Nice apology. I almost feel sorry for you. Now also take back the stupid shit you said about Trump.

A president who wants to control immigration is absolutely normal.

People who want to abolish borders are senseless extremists.

How many times did this cock-twaddler indicate all these people ADMIRE him? He's worse than Obama :   I ME MY.

Fucking worthless narcissist. He gets one point for not lying; however, I read about this sort of thing about him years ago. So, I will take that point back. He's only 'fessing up now because he's run out of folks who will run interference for him.

That's always the best part : "all those years I behaved like a pig. Now that I'm caught I want you to believe Im a caring human being".

 

NOPE! Won't work, Louis!

Gotta add this. If this happened in the inner city, CPS would be packing those kids into a van live on television. No social worker going to his house? Those kids need to be looked at.

I guess it's entirely ok for women to wear wildly revealing outfits with their tits and ass hanging out...I actually see this no different than the plethora of actresses who got caught stepping out of vehicles pantiless with their dirty snaps hanging out.  if women want respect...dress a l ittle bit more conservatively...they are a walking billboard for agressive sexual attention from the opposite or same sex.  Fuck off everyone who disagrees.

look! a pervert! and a parade of whores!

what is new about any of this?

Snaffew's picture

women have been using their bodies as a tool to get ahead in life for millenia...but hey, that's ok...as long as men don't get attracted to these scantily clad, vivacious women, then it's all harmless, too bad, that is not the intent of the women at all.

Time to ask him about Bill Clinton and what his cigar antics translate to.  I think he has mentioned a time of two that that was being blown out of proportion.

Most people are very sorry once they've been exposed.  Or so they say.  I admit if showing your dick to someone is wrong, I'm guilty of it.  But I swear to god she really wanted to see it.

This is what happens when you belong to a Tribe that sees all out-groups as sub-human while preaching that God has Chosen you to rule them.

Fuck the Jews. All of them. This is what they approve of enabling. Even the secular ones.

Very analogous to "Islam is the religion of peace".

Power. LOL. Regret isn't rape, and persuasiveness isn't coercion. Women are incapable of saying no to a star? Bullshit. Stop being a pussy Louis. How lowly do you view your female fans? Complete robots? Fuck off. You're a clown. More proof that male feminists are the worst misogynists. The misogyny of low expectations. He probably also thinks addiction is a "disease" inflicted on it's victims by genetics. LOL fuck off pussies everywhere! Be a (hu)man. Take responsibility for your actions. Louis is just belittling his so-called victims by removing their free will. Louis is an attention whore. He was flirting with this situation, he wanted this like he secretly wanted to be caught by mom masturbating as a child, if perhaps only subconsciously. Is he Catholic? They feed on shame and self flagellation.

A creep and a degenerate, but an honest creep and degenerate.

This weirdo should be on lifetime probation for his behavior.

Dads, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, and sons should be able to pay this slob a visit.

He should have a permanent and public tracking location, available to anyone interested.

It was a great apology, as such things go.  He at least SAID the right things, and admitted fault.  So that is promising.  However what matters now is what he DOES to make things right for the people he hurt.  That is the measure by which we will know if his words are a true reflection of what he actually thinks.

The real problem of course is that he did not come out on his own.  It was after he was caught.  So even if he DOES the right things, we now know his true nature.  He's a creep.

Now, what I"m waiting for is for the other shoe to drop.  So far he is in fact just a creep, not a criminal.  However I suspect he did not always manage to avoid using stronger 'persuasion'.

Is it weird that I have no idea who Louis CK is?

It just means you don't listen to comedy.
