Not long after Sarah Silverman gave a monologue regarding the sexual misconduct allegations against Louis CK, the comedienne revealed that her words actually had somewhat of a positive effect on Louis’ children.
During an interview at an event for the Paly Center For Media, the star talked about the speech that she gave regarding the allegations CK faced off with near the ending of 2017.
As it was previously reported, in the midst of the #MeToo allegations, CK came out and admitted that he masturbated in front of women after asking them for permission, despite the inappropriate nature of the interaction, including the fact he was their superior in a couple of the scenarios laid out by the New York Times report.
In the part of the I Love America series, the star said that it was really challenging for her to deal with the allegations against Louis, considering she and the comedian were good friends.
According to Silverman – in the clip which you can see below – she didn’t really want to address the situation but felt she had to, considering her involvement in other aspects of the #MeToo movement.
During her chat with reporters, Silverman said she had spoken with Louis since then, and the comic revealed to her that her speech helped out his two daughters deal with the situation.
Via the Daily Beast, Silverman explained that Louis called her after the incident, and she “showed it to him and she said, I can love you even though you did bad things. And we cried.”
The star added that it was a small silver lining in an otherwise, very negative story. Moreover, Silverman talked about his recent return to the stage at the Comedy Cellar in New York, where CK came up on the stage and performed without warning.
Sarah admitted that he probably should’ve addressed the situation,”but also,” the star explained, “you can’t practice stand-up in front of a mirror. You have to have an audience.”
