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

"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's the first one to step up with a straight admission, apology, and no excuses. Everybody does stupid shit but it takes a man to admit it.

There's only one way to stop all these after the fact confessions and feelings of remorse.  I challenge the media - especially those in Hollywood - to demand that all remaining parasites come forward and out themselves now before details of their ecploits leak out.  Failing to do so will greatly hamper their later credibility.  Hmm. I wonder how many studio heads and agents would be forced to close shop.  And any babes who accept money to continue to remain silent should be accorded similar treatment.

Look.

Everything the treasonous democratic media does is about GETTING TRUMP.

They are gonna create this great tower of fiery outrage over precious goddesses (who are actually high-rent whores) polluted and raped by the least touch of an evil Male's hand-

And then (Link linkety link) Trump is a pedophile rapist! He must be impeached!

...

Can we just remove all doubt and begin to shoot these media traitors? They are traitors in every sense of the word. They are ENEMY. They are Alien.

Put them to death. they have no right to live in America.

Fagotts. butt pirates. Ass divers. Boy fuckers. Hang them.

This is treason. kill them.

Liberal doctrine has stitched America's asshole shut so the culture can't take a shit.

The media now acts as a reverse sewage system.. pumping the shit right into your house.

...

This country needs an enema. an enema made of fire and hot lead..
