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.

He never showed a woman his dick without asking first? I guess that's his idea of being funny. What satisfactiion does he get from showing people his dick? Is his dick funny ?

Apparently so.

Like what is next?  Seriously.  Are skanks going to line up and complain that some guy shouted out, 'hey, show me your tits'.  Yes, most of this is in poor taste, but is most of it illegal?  All of this shows me is that most of these guys are nimrods and severely lacking. I am not that nice a guy - loud, abrasive, drop f bombs like confetti. Only half kidding when I opine that America's (worthless) liberals be granted temporary residence in a Soylent Green for Pets camp, etc.

What I have never done is bang a tart when she is so drunk she does not know her own name. Never used my power in the crew to coerce a tart into having sex with me. I have never asked a woman if she wants to see my dick, but am not shy about producing aforementioned appendage if a woman asks.  Because you know, and I know that if a woman wants my dick out of my jeans, she wants to do more than look at it.

I have never given this much thought until now - but I am wondering how many of these louts who are terrorizing these women are (worthless) liberals?

We need to draw a line at this point between acting crudely and illegal behavior.  Are we slowly sliding back into politically correct behavior?  Women are not  children, and are quite able to reject inapropriate, but legal behavior.

" Are we slowly sliding back into politically correct behavior?"

Yes we are. I'll add that it doesn't seem to be slowly to me.

Being a male feminist is a sexual strategy of beta cucks.

Ms No's picture

That's probably true but anybody that has their entire life revolving around fucking anything that walks and treating human beings as meat to stick their dick into do not garner respect from anybody, except themselves.  Men don't like them either.  You know how many men in this country have wives and children and are always at least attempting to do the right thing?  Do you think they feel sorry for guys when some guy's 80th cocksman incident goes wrong?  People have the right to act like that but nobody really respects them and there will always be consequences.  In politics it's really terrible.  You have a guy who has a very important job overseeing the wellbeing of constituents and people, people they always profess to care and look out for.  When somebody takes that position and then spends all of their time trying to get their rocks off it's disgusting and completely dishonorable, Bill Clinton for example. 

Remember back in the day when This is all people got for their entire lives and if they got caught stepping out of that they were ruined to even do business?  It's not just things for women that changed in this country.  You guys had a sexual revolution too and from the sounds of it you like this new sexual revolution a lot,

So apparently men now have a new obligation: managing the feelings of women they encounter.

If a man dares consider expressing any romantic or sexual attraction to a woman, he must first do a calculation accurately determining if that woman admires him.  Or find out if she works anywhere in his field.  Because if either is the case, she's off limits.  Else she can later turn around to claim he held power over her.  Rendering any proposal he makes “abusive sexual misconduct.”  Or even if she does says "yes," to avoid charges of coercion, he must take her "yes" to actually mean “no.”

If in any interaction with any woman a man ever has that woman happens to not feel comfortable, that's very dangerous.  Doesn't matter if it was because of something he said, her particular mood at that time of the month, or a miscommunication.   Regardless, decades later she need only voice an accusation that she felt uncomfortable sexually and boom - his career, livelihood, and family dynamited within hours.

It is probably starting to dawn on a lot of woman out there the kind of power they now wield over any successful men they ever have or ever will cross paths with.

Smart, successful men in the public eye who have a lot to lose (and ambitious young men who aim to be) are going to want to start reducing their exposure.  Avoid non-essential contact with women.  Avoid hiring them.  Avoid lunch, drinks, or getting onto teams with them.  Never be in the same room alone with any.  Never relax or joke with them.  Express romantic or sexual interest at mortal peril.

Long call girls.

Ms No's picture

I think you guys worry about things too much.  First of all these guys are out of control perverts and there is zero reason to put yourself in their shoes, unless you go around trying to get all of the women who work for you to look at your pecker.  I'm sure you don't, so why would you assume that you would ever be in his position?

"If a man dares consider expressing any romantic or sexual attraction to a woman, he must first do a calculation accurately determining if that woman admires him.  Or find out if she works anywhere in his field.  Because if either is the case, she's off limits.  Else she can later turn around to claim he held power over her."

I don't think so.  Either you have power of somebody or you don't.  The work place is a very risky place to look for sex.  If one does such a thing they can maybe say something like "I don't date people I work with but if at some later date you would be interested in having dinner with me I would be most honored."  Then you let her call you.  That's about as much as you can probably get away with at the work place.  If she calls you you're not going to have a problem.  If they are a calculating bitch then they'll lose out there because they pursued you and you have proof. 

Where people are most likely to run into epic female revenge wrath, and we have all seen this plenty, is when some guy goes around lying about searching for a real relationship and generally acts machiavellian to get ass and then gets it and throws them to the curb, laughs in their face, brags about it, humiliates them and moves on to the next one.  I could never under stand why guys go around and do that type of thing and then turn their back.  That is a risky game that will get people eventually.  You combine that with a work scenario and it's a ticking time bomb.  If you combine those two with being married and cheating then it is level five boiled rabbit roulette, from multiple angles.

Despite this happening constantly how many men do you know were completely totaled out because of things like this?  If you do know of some, are you sure you got all the facts on their behavior that led to their demise?  This guy doesn't count because he ran around asking coworkers if they wanted to see his cock.  That is weird as hell.  Even then, look how long he got away with it.  If you don't see it happening in your everyday life than it's probably just more divide and conquer intimidation and propaganda.

"If you combine those two with being married and cheating then it is level five boiled rabbit roulette, from multiple angles."

Comments like this, sprinkled in every once in a while, are part of the reason why I read your posts:)

herkomilchen's picture

That's the same argument as: if you're not a criminal and you have nothing to hide why wouldn't you be cool with government having absolute power over your life?  If you are a sensitive man only seeking mutually desired encounters, why would you not be cool with every girl getting absolute power to dynamite your career over how she feels?

I share your views about Machiavellian behavior, how it's a time bomb, and doesn't work.  But in the past unless someone physically assaulted someone, the adverse consequences of socially caddish behavior were kept in the social sphere.

If boorishness is now to be a crime punishable by overnight destruction of 30-year careers and livelihood, then shouldn't there be some standards around how that's prosecuted?  Such as beyond-a-reasonable-doubt violation of explicit, objective rules of what behavior is OK and what is not that everyone had agreed to in advance.  And a trial where the accused has the right to defend himself with evidence, witnesses, etc.  Right now offended sensibilities = "assault."   Mere accusation from decades ago = conviction.  Automatic punishment = total career destruction.

As part of high-level, high-intensity work I have been emotionally abused, harassed, demeaned, and treated as inhuman in various respects.  So what.  I'm an adult.  I endured all of it without complaint or objection because no one is responsible for my feelings but me.  If I didn't like the treatment, I could leave and find another job/career.  If one of my bosses had said to me while walking away, "Oh yeah, I think you're hot and I want to fuck you," only then would I become a pitiful victim needing therapy to coddle my wounded sensibilities?  Only then would my boss become a monster deserving to never work again?  This new PC crusade makes no sense.

Ms No's picture

An accusation shouldn't be enough, innocent until proven guilty. I can understand in really serious accusations such as death threats or accusations of pedophilia and rape where they may have to remove somebody temporarily, while paying them, until they find out if anything is going on (happens with cops all the time) but there most certainly should be the requirement that their accusations are proven.  Until then they should just be kept away from each other until something is determined and if they fire somebody without that and it damages their future employability, they should probably sue them for wrongful termination, etc.  Then maybe they will learn to be more fair in their actions. 

The bottom line though is that people are not hiring us so that we can use their business/employees as a captured audience from which to cultivate sexual relationships.  You also have to realize that there are a lot of people that are real wierdos out there.  As far as outside of the workplace, they shouldn't be able to do shit about it unless it's stalking (told very clearly to go away but wont/ a crime) or like this guy where they're a flasher type.  He is claiming that he asked them first but if that is inaccurate then that actually is a crime, although not that serious of one.

Yeah, right. Or just refrain from whipping out your member and whacking off in front of unsuspecting individuals. 

11th_Harmonic's picture

"So apparently men now have a new obligation: managing the feelings of women they encounter." I would have added "...within the workplace" to dissuade counterpoints to your premise, but I understand the context of your statement; however, I challenge your point that this is something new: I was employed for nearly a decade with a staff of ~35 individuals comprised of a majority of women, and most of my business interactions were with women. Here's where you are correct: "Avoid lunch, drinks, or getting onto teams with them. Never be in the same room alone with any. Never relax or joke with them." I maintained an "open-door" policy in that business, but I would cover my ass with any means available to protect myself against false accusations, including, but not limited to, witnesses and video/audio recordings. Furthermore, I did not stray into personal discussions and would abruptly terminate any conversation beyond the scope of business. Moral: Keep your wits--and your dick--away from the reach of gold-digging femme fatales, or suffer the consequences for being a dumbass.

Ms No's picture

Are you sure that was all necessary?  Had you ever been falsely accused at work before?  If you were false accused how did the situation work out, vindicated?  How do we know that a simple policy of not trying to have sex with employees wont work?

Nobodys Home's picture

I have been falsely accused in the distant past. I quit my position because I was so disgusted with my boss for not backing me up. All it takes is an accusation. In my case all it was, was that I said the word: "bitch". Even the accusation stated I said it to an inanimate object and not a person. I didn't even say it. That was over 20 years ago. I went on to start my own business. It was a good thing in retrospect.

Ms No's picture

I don't know what the solution is. I think it all leads back to the malignant personalities. They are the ones trying to use power leverage against others to get laid. They are the ones that can't go an hour without an insatiable urge to fulfill their sexual needs.   They are the ones the concoct lies to have fellow co-workers sacked for financial gain. I have been framed for mistakes, sabotaged and threatened too. I think calling somebody a bitch (even though you didn't) is nothing unless it's a daily problem.  Being hit on is not a big deal to me either but if it's a creepy aggressive boss and then you have to leave because of it, that sucks.  How many jobs can somebody afford to leave as a result of that?  What the hell is wrong with these people?  If we let them do personality testing to weed out those with predatory psychology, who knows what they actually do with those tools.

Lol..Personality testing...Anyone that posts on ZH will fail.

Ms No:

No, my protectionist stance was not warranted by personal experience: However, there was precedence in that industry for both the abuse of authority and litigation based upon accusations of impropriety--some legitimate, some bogus--that destroyed a few careers and families. "Are you sure that was all necessary?" Well, perhaps not in my experience, but let's suffice to say that I wasn't going to expose myself to the potential. I've seen careers succumb to rumors, and in today's "social media" age, one that works within an industry subject to public scrutiny should beware of pitfalls, warranted or not.

Ms No's picture

Fair enough.  I just feel like if we all change our lives to revolve around these threats, that may or may not be likely, that they win.

Even though I am very happy to watch these arseholes go down "the tubes", I wonder about how this effects the world as it has been for thousands of years. Is this another plot to change society and weaken men?

Actually it looks like he didn't work with any of these women, according to MSM and he hasn't been charged with a crime.  I wonder if there is something bigger under the surface they are trying to get out in front of, or if they are just trying to water down the Weinstein, Soros-sadist-hedger, Sheen and Hollywood pedophilia wave.  Three Zionists treating an important media industry as their personal meat locker isn't exactly good for them though.  It reveals their numbers in Hollywood and their control.

"The network has received no allegations of misconduct by Louis C.K. related to any of our 5 shows produced together over the past 8 years," FX said in a statement. "FX Networks and [FX Productions] take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace. That said, the matter is currently under review."

His "position"? Who does a second rate comedian "wield power" over? Third rate comedians?

He should now tour with that shitty obnoxious loud mouth comedienne that posed with Trumps decapitated head.

They can call it The Second Chance Comedy Troupe. The lib cities on both coasts would eat it up.
