Louis C.K. Crossed a Line Into Sexual Misconduct, 5 Women Say

I have posted a ton of his videos here before so this brings me no pleasure at all:

In 2002, a Chicago comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, landed their big break: a chance to perform at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo. When Louis C.K. invited them to hang out in his hotel room for a nightcap after their late-night show, they did not think twice. The bars were closed and they wanted to celebrate. He was a comedian they admired. The women would be together. His intentions seemed collegial.

As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.

They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. “And then he really did it,” Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”

In 2003, Abby Schachner called Louis C.K. to invite him to one of her shows, and during the phone conversation, she said, she could hear him masturbating as they spoke. Another comedian, Rebecca Corry, said that while she was appearing with Louis C.K. on a television pilot in 2005, he asked if he could masturbate in front of her. She declined.

    I really don’t understand human beings. Or particularly care for them.
    More cat pictures, please.

  • I’m nor even sure there’s enough cat pictures in the world at this point 🙁

    Ugh, this is just terrible news. I’m going to look at cat and dog pictures now…

    I wonder if this technique ever worked for anybody,
    as it seems commonplace among celebs?

    What about Steven Segal?
    He’s up next (pardon the expression).

    Glass half full after reading the previous articles: compared to molesting minors and/or blackmailing actresses’ careers for sex, what Louis did (and asking if it’s OK first) doesn’t sound that bad. At least he only touched himself.
