Jon Stewart Talks Louis CK Scandal


Stopped on the street by TMZ, Stewart said he agreed with HBO's decision and insisted that "not everyone in Hollywood is a scumbag". Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov said C.K. did masturbate in front of them in his hotel room in Aspen, Colorado during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. And you always find yourself back to a moment of 'did I miss something?

"You give your friends the benefit of the doubt", Stewart said, alluding to friends with compulsions they're working through. Stewart no longer think it's amusing.

"Knowing what I know now, of course I would have probed Stewart more deeply", he wrote.

"Look, comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women", the former Daily Show host added.

Comedian/director Jon Stewart (C) listens during at an event to urge U.S. lawmakers to re-authorize the Zadroga Bill at the U.S. Capitol in Washington September 16, 2015. Stewart feels, based on a long friendship, "anger at what [Louis C.K.] did to people". And I think if you talk to women, they are in a very hard position. Stewart, who was joined by the benefit's creator Michelle Smigel, had been quiet about the Louis scandal, but many were waiting to a response from him. "You know who you're talking to, right?"

Bridges' teammates are no slouches, either, of course, as the game is billed as a showdown between potential Final Four teams. I think the Spartans will take their learning experiences from a year ago and turn it into some big wins this year.

Later, the Daily Show host remembered the first time he had heard about the sexual misconduct accusations about Louis C.K., which he had been caught off guard with by an audience member while recording a podcast. "As he kept going, I was like, 'look, I know this is very serious, he's always been a gentleman to me" - which speaks again to the blindness that I think a man has. I'm not that connected to that world. He said, "What do you think of the allegations against Louis C.K., and my first response was, 'What?' and then joke, joke".

He says he and others "took somebody's word for it and maybe that's an error on our part".

In his statement, C.K. confirmed the news and said that this is a true story of real incident.
