Is asking a girl to show you her pussy in the bathroom sexual assault nowadays?? Asking for a friend.

It's pretty clear he was leveraging his status in those situations, knowing they'd likely keep quiet.

As a huge lck fan, it sucks.

All of his hbo content is down, no future there or likely anywhere else.

so is he a creep and a weirdo? yes. which shouldn't be a shock to anyone seeing as thats the basis of his entire stand up career.

but is he a sexual predator? doesn't seem like it to me.

if i'm misunderstanding the situation or missing something please correct me.

i take a pretty hard line against sexual assault but this seems like a smear campaign.

they're trying to make him out to be another cosby.
He sounds like a sexual predator who engages in sexual misconduct that cannot be described as sexual assault.

Can't believe there are people describing Louis CK's behaviour as NBD.

Louis CK performs in a country where his alleged behavior wouldn't disqualify him from running for political office. Why are you surprised?

C'mon man, who in the world would be orchestrating a smear campaign against Louis CK? I like Louis' work as much as anyone else in this thread but you need to be fanboying pretty hard to try and justify his behaviour as nothing too serious.

Nobody is trying to do this. You don't need to go full Cos to be a sexual predator.

Anyhow, here is CK's statement:
"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," he wrote. "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."

That second last line is ridiculous. His power wasn't simply that they admired him, he was a person of influence in their lives. He also badgered a couple of them repeatedly to consent. And he didn't always ask - one woman stated she was midway into a phone conversation with him when she realized he was masturbating while on the call.

Well I give Louis props for at least admitting fault and apologizing. I'm not sure what else you can ask someone who has f***ed up to do. I read his entire statement and he does seem sincerely sorry for the pain his actions caused others.

I suppose the old "he's only sorry because he got caught" argument might apply, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I was hoping he was going to come out and say I choose now to live as a gay man.

At the very least itís refreshing in light of the denials we usually get, see POTUS for example.

What Louis CK did was definitely weird and creepy but doesn't rise to the level of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby imo.

Just rewatched LCK 2017, its brilliant but a bit weird to watch in light if recent events

This is extremely disappointing as a massive Louie fan boy, I feel for every woman put in that situation

Louie strikes me as very self aware so must have known what he was doing was very ****ty but perhaps underestimated the magnitude of its impact

Im sure his remorse is genuine taking in to account his transparent selfnawareness and obvious knowledge of human nature

Men thinking with their dicks can be ****ing terrible

The problem wasnít that it was weird and creepy, it was that he did it to subordinates. If he was doing it with his girlfriend or a hooker it would have been fine. The stuff those other guys were pulling is criminal.

Do you guys think they'll pull the show Louie off of every available source?? It's one of my top 10 favorite shows off all time and I'm gonna buy it off iTunes or Amazon if that may happen.

I would pull the trigger ASAP. If Netflix cut ties like they did with Spacey that quickly, they will have no problems doing that with LCK. The only hang up might be the contract Fox has with Netflix and whether it involves some kinda morality clause.

Who said it rises to the level of Weinstein/Cosby?

There are so many references in his show and standup to his love for masturbation and his skill at it. It's weird to see it now.

Imho he's finished in any format outside of live comedy. And I think that will work out just fine for him in the end. His star got to shine way brighter than most comics ever get. And now it's time to move on.

i predict a bored blogger will write an article today questioning whether this was why he started to build up his own delivery channel years ago.

i'm slightly surprised fx severed all ties. if this is the extent of who comes forward AND it's all in the past, i think he will be mostly fine. if a lot more women speak up and there's recent allegations in there, then he will struggle.

oh and that grammar mistake in the apology really annoyed me.

you guys must not go on twitter much.

and i'm not saying its no big deal i just think the reaction to it has been disproportionate to his actions.

he's being written/talked about like hes been raping women non-stop for the past 10yrs.

Louie will be fine. He ll make people pay to download his stuff from his his usual platform and if his movie is any good he might even make more money.
That story will disappear fast.
