Louis C.K. back on the stage for the first time after his allegations!
In the comedy series called Louie, Louie C.K. (50) played himself as the dad of two daughters who just got a divorce and was struggling to make the ends meet and keep his life going. Roseanne Barr (65) was the one who talked about what was happening behind the closed doors with Louie C.K. She said: "It’s Louis C.K., locking the door and mas***bating in front of women comics and writers. I can’t tell you—I’ve heard so many stories. Not just him, but a lot of them. And it’s just par for the course. It’s just shit women have to put up with."
After the se*ual misconduct allegations he was involved in, he just returned to the stage on Sunday night and people are not sure how to react to it!
Twitter has been going crazy since the news of him returning to the stage has gone out and many tweets are against the standup comedian. Here are some of them!
Some people were even more pissed after the article on The New York Times that covered his come back!
...1) he's not been punished. 2) For non-famous men, each count of indecent exposure and false imprisonment (which CK's admitted to) carries a sentence of ~1yr in jail" Amir Talai.
"So Louis CK, TJ Miller, and Chris Hardwick walk into a comedy club… One of my fondest memories is singing my song about loving Louis CK right before he did a drop-in. The idea of him doing a drop-in now feels awful."
"I believe people can grow and change, but this urgency to bring him (and others) back SO soon just sends such a bad message" Allie Goertz.
"But he decided to just rip the Band-Aid off." -- explain to me how Louis CK is wearing a metaphorical band-aid" Scott Weinberg.
"Audiences should have the leeway to decide what to watch themselves." -- opinion from the comedy club owner that booked Louis CK but didn't tell anyone, thereby removing their ability to decide for themselves" Scott Weinberg.
"I think some of you think that because we're alone on stage, that stand-up is a completely solitary line of work, but it's not" Bris Farley.
"Can you imagine the bank you're working at hiring back the guy who jacked off in front of women without their consent because it had been like, a year or something?" Bris Farley.
"This sh*t isn't hypothetical. It isn't an argument on the internet. Letting these creeps go with a slap on the wrist has wide reverberations and creates a climate that just isn't fucking safe for comedians, and especially comedians who are women - but also comedy club staff" Bris Farley.
"Sorry to blather on, but this shit just really fucking makes me sick. It seems so obvious that we shouldn't let these people back into our communities without them putting in a lot of work to get better" Bris Farley.
"If Louis CK had stolen jokes, he’d be a fucking pariah. But instead he stole careers and passion and trust from possibly brilliant comedians - women that we’ll never get to hear from - and that is worse. Or it should be" Jason Filiatrault.
"Louis CK is back performing stand up. Matt Lauer promises to be back on television "soon." Our culture cares more about a predatory man's "comeback story" than it cares about victims, justice, or ending se*ual assault, harassment, and violence" Danielle Campoamor.
