Louis C.K. Comments on Sexual Misconduct Allegations

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/louis-ck-comments-sexual-misconduct-allegations-1056953Louis C.K. has spoken out about the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him. In a statement released on Friday, the comedian and TV star said, “These stories are true.”

He continued, “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”

He apologized to the women who told their stories as well as other people impacted by his actions such as the casts and crews of movies and television shows that are now tainted or even canceled as a result.
