Louis CK

What an awful, awful man. The level of self-righteousness, sanctimony and hypocrisy you must have to do something like this.

Reminds me a lot of the Joss Whedon scandal that happened the other week, in terms of a man using ‘feminism’ as both a shield and an excuse, except he’s gone and amped it up to 11… million. Hope you all start disowning him now.

There’s never been a good American stand-up imo, but this is besides the point. Thread is reserved exclusively for CK-related invective.

Yeah, more into my Croatian standups tbh

Won’t feel guilty for liking Louie or to a lesser extent his stand-up…but i think i’ve read enough about him to put me off his stuff in the future.

I’m shocked, shocked. OK, not that shocked.

His TV show is still great though.

Will reserve judgement till I’ve seen it obvs.

Yeah. Reading the description of the film there doesn’t really make it clear to me if it’s actually dodgy. I mean it sounds like the point is that deep down you realise this guy is mega-dodgy? I dunno.

Tig Natarro’s comments are probably more important although on the face of it they seem pretty innocuous, they had an electrifying effect on Louie CK that is pretty telling.

A bit more than innocuous

@1101010 it doesn’t matter how the material potrays sexual assault. In fact I predict that it’s going to deal with the subject ‘very delicately’. That’s not the point; the point is that for him to do this film after what’s come out about him (which, given the multiple sources that it’s come from (among other things), is unquestionably not a case of women making up sexual assault allegations) is pretty vile. IMO the only vaguely respectable thing he could do with this film is use it as a way to unambiguously apologise to his victims and announce his retirement as a public figure.

Properly gone off him after his sexual assault claims. I’d usually seek out his stuff but now I just don’t want to.

fucks sake, just went down the rabbit hole and read all about the sexual assault allegations for the first time. Oh well, guess I won’t be watching any of his stuff again.

Did a lol at this bit at the end of one of the articles:

Have you been sexually harassed by Louis C.K., or do you know someone who has? Have you heard rumors of the sort? If so, please leave a comment below or contact me at jordan@gawker.com, anonymity guaranteed.

Maybe only Louis CK could have got away with such a controversial subject - that’s if he has got away with it - and done so with such elegant wit.

This isn’t going to look great in retrospect, Pete bud
