The New York Times ran a story on Thursday in which five women accused comedian Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct.
In light of the C.K. news, and with mounting allegations of sexual harassment across Hollywood, lots of celebrities and comedians weighed in on the latest news.
"At this point, we’re going to need a new Oscar category this year,” Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, joked Thursday night. "Best Actor Whose Movies We Can’t Watch Anymore.’”
Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show, noted C.K. had been set to appear on his show on Thursday night but cancelled before the Times story published. "For those of you tuning in to see my interview with Louis C.K. tonight, I have some bad news," Colbert said. "Then I have some really bad news."
The conversation didn't just happen on television, either; comedians, writers, producers, and actors shard their thoughts on C.K. online. "When you disrespect and sexually harass young, vulnerable people you become a dream killer," Judd Apatow tweeted.
"I was waiting for this one," actor Mara Wilson said.
Seinfeld's Jason Alexander tweeted a message to the men of the world.
Marc Maron said he'd share more thoughts on his podcast.
