Louis CK, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey...

in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

Fuck!!! I am noticing I am taking this whole thing personal. First when the news broke on Spacey it brought a tear to my eye and now this!

This bothers me far more than Spacey, somehow. I was a fan of Louis' comedy and admired the way he talked about all kinds of things middle-aged men might only think about.

There were some scenes in the last couple of series of Louie that you had to watch through your fingers, but now I'm thinking that they really were based on his life, and it's both shocking and disappointing.

What strikes me, and I don't know how to take it, is he's supposedly a very good dad to his daughters and shares joint custody. That will be gone soon.

But it also seems to strike me that guys forget that women are daughters and sisters too when distinguishing their "peccadilloes" from how they relate to their own families. It's fucked up.

He won't comment on it.

My understanding is it's been bubbling under for quite a bit longer than that and that he has responded.

I haven't seen the latest twist though. I'd be hugely disappointed because I kind of buy into, or at least enjoy, his schtick.

Regardless, this trend will cut both ways (I'm looking at you, Roy Moore), but surely for the best, for all concerned, to have serial sexual predators of every stripe removed from the playing board.

EDIT:
So it’s not real? “No.” he responded. “They’re rumors, that’s all that is.”

Up until now, anyway, there haven't been any accusers, only rumors.

Louis C.K's pr rep is named Lewis Kay?

Is this like when Donald Trump pretended to be his own representative or is there some sort of name shortage in the US right now?

Weird that being unapologetic about your arseholery somehow absolves you of it in the eye of the great unwashed. One dude loses the lot, the other becomes POTUS - the fucking court of public opinion, eh. Dodgier than a Sunday night tasting plate.
Goodness gracious me.

What this country needs is an asshole and we've found the biggest one there is!

People don't always need their politicians to be likeable. Celebrities? I think we need to like those cunts a bit more.


I've never seen any of Louis C.K's standup but I was aware of rumours.

You'd love his series, Dougie. I'm surprised you haven't seen it.

Watching cable news today and commenting on Louis CK and Roy Moore, a commentator essential said it's messed up if Hollywood is ethically and morally ahead of the curve from politics. Some Republicans have commented on Moore, but most are hiding behind the party.

I think it is a little sad that people are punished on the "if there's smoke, there's fire" court of public opinion. But then again, the victims do seem to pile up on these things.

I always valued Coan's intellect and taste above his countrymen.

I thought he was a good guy. I am so disappointed.
