Louis CK made his return to stand-up again recently, with a set on Dec. 16. A leaked audio tape from the same performance recently surfaced online, and it's hasn't been met with a very positive reception due to its offensive content. Instead of reflecting on his disgusting behavior, which included sexual misconduct against five women who came forward in 2017, he's doubled down. In the set, he makes offensive jokes about gender identity, race, and survivors of school shootings.
Understandably, one of the survivors of the Parkland shooting earlier this year was not happy with his comments. "Hey Louis CK," Aalayah Eastmond wrote on Twitter. "Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors. I'm right here if you want to talk. Just try to keep it in your pants, ok?" Eastmond is referring to CK's sexual misconduct incidents, in which he allegedly masturbated in front of women without their consent.
“They testify in front of Congress, these kids? What are they doing? You’re young! You should be crazy! You should be unhinged! Not in a suit. You’re not interesting," Louis CK said during the set. "Because you went to a high school where kids got shot? Why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I’ve got to listen to you talking?"
Louis CK has also received criticism for his racist comments against Asians during the set. "You know why Asian guys have small dicks," he said during the set. "'Cause they're women. They're not dudes. They're all women. All Asians are women. And they have big clits, and when they have sex they just stick their clits in each other's pussies and they procreate using math."
Initial coverage of the leaked set audio, including our very own, didn't report upon his anti-Asian jokes.
"Fuck it, what are you going to take away, my birthday? My life is over, I don't give a shit. You can be offended, you can get mad at me," he said during the set, which also included comments critical of non-binary teenagers. "They tell you what to call them," he said. "'You should address me as they/them, because I identify as gender neutral.' Oh, OK. You should address me as 'there' because I identify as a location. And the location is your mother's cunt."
