Re: “Louis C.K. Brings His Non-Apology Tour to Hilarities Next Week

I think the people suggesting that Louis CK always asked for permission need to read the NYT article again. The two women in the story's lede said they thought he was joking and laughed it off, but he did it anyway. That is absolutely NOT the same as receiving permission. One woman even says that he started masturbating while he was on the phone with her and definitely did NOT ask for permission, others said they felt like they needed to say yes. And in his own statement he acknowledges that he took advantage of his position of power over these women. Additionally, if asking for permission made everything okay, then why was his manager going around trying to get people to stop talking about it? You can't just hand wave away this stuff because he asked nicely.

And yeah, he apologized in one statement. And then went on a comeback tour consisting of transphobic shows in which he mocks school shooting survivors. Beyond one conciliatory statement to the Times (which reads like it was penned by his PR flak) he's done nothing to prove that he understands the consequences of his actions, or shown that he's tried to better himself, or tried to make show business safer for women. Take a look at the leaked clips. If anything, he's regressed.
