During an opening monologue of her Hulu show, I love you, America, Sarah Silverman decided to address “the elephant masturbating in the room” as she called it, to which she was talking about Louis C.K.
Just last week, in the ever draining Hollywood swamp, some women stepped forward and accused the longtime funny man of essentially “making” them watch him play with himself — in some cases even if they didn’t really want to.
Louie C.K. released a statement seemingly the same day which he said he did it. He says that he learned later in life that it’s not really OK and that he never did it without asking first.
So he and Silverman have been friends for decades and she released this video, and while visibly distraught, spoke about the matter. She didn’t want to make excuses for him or bring up “what a good day he is” — saying that none of that mattered right now.
