It’s been nearly half-a-year since Louis CK publicly said sorry for his past sexual transgressions which included masturbating in front of women without their consent, as well as supposedly taking advantage of the power afforded to him. The reports came out á la New York Times, and Louis lost nearly everything because of it.
Since then, he hasn’t come out in public or given any public statements at all. In a story for GQ, Sarah Silverman dished on what she thinks of her longtime friendship with the disgraced comic, and whether or not she believes he should be welcomed back into the tribe.
Surprisingly, Sarah defended CK’s right to continue to be an artist, but of course, she didn’t defend his actions. The actress and comedienne admitted she doesn’t have any definitive answer or juicy soundbite for the organization to publish, and she doesn’t even have one for herself.
They are feelings in herself she is still dealing with. Even though his fallout was swift, Silverman still called him “her brother.”
“I don’t see any reason why they can’t continue being artists.” Moreover, she claimed that people who are guilty of their crimes, but never admit it, go on to have successful careers as politicians or movie-makers, whereas people who admit their crimes go on to suffer ex-communication.
As you may know, Silverman has spoken on the CK allegations once before in the past. She joked, “I need to talk about the elephant masturbating in the room.”
Moreover, the comedienne discussed the fact that the media and the entertainment world filters information and reality through the “male lens,” rather than that of the women.
Or, in other words, men don’t understand how women go about living life, what women are afraid of, and what kind of things they deal with on a day-to-day basis.
