Dave Chappelle Defends Louis C.K. Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Dave Chappelle is coming to Louis C.K.‘s defense amid his sexual assault scandal.

During the New Year’s Eve Netflix special The Bird Revelation, Dave called Louis‘ accusers “weak” for claiming his sexual misconduct kept them from pursuing a career in comedy.

“Louis was like the turning point. All these allegations were terrible — I shouldn’t say this — but his allegations were the only ones that made me laugh,” Dave said. “When you think about it, he’s jerking off — he’s surprising people. … I picture all the comics in comedy reading it like, ‘Word!’ It’s terrible, I’m sorry ladies, you’re right. At the same time, Jesus Christ, they took everything from Louis. It might be disproportionate, I can’t tell. This is where it’s hard to be man.”

Back in November Louis confirmed all the sexual assault allegations against him and ultimately lost his partnership with HBO.

“You think if Louis C.K. jerked off in front of Dr. [Martin Luther] King, he’d be like, ‘I can’t continue this movement? I’m sorry, but the freedom of black people must be stopped,” Dave went on. “I didn’t know this n—- was going to pull his dick out and jerk off like this. I thought we were going to get a couple of drinks and chill.’ Show business is just harder than that — them women sounded like, I hate to say it, they sounded weak. I know it sounds f—ed up and I’m not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, ‘Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him.’ Bitch, you don’t know how to hang up the phone? How the hell are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams? I know Louis is wrong, I’m just saying, I’m held to a higher standard of accountability than these women are.”

    stand-up comedy is one of the most toxic, misogynistic garbage dumps in the entire entertainment industry so no surprise these sh*tbrains are going to come to his defense… end dave’s career too for this matt damon nonsense!! burn it all down!!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Lol he’s right. None of those women stood up for themselves. They ended up laughing it off, and being cool with the men who “harassed” them. They should’ve spoken for themselves. Instead of waiting and saying “metoo” years later.

  • wearing

    I saw the beginning of his recent stand up. He’s stuck in the 90s thinking it’s funny to be misogynist or homophobe. He can go back to whatever farm he was hiding at.

  • wearing

    Hindsight’s 20/20. It’s extremely easy to say what you would’ve done, but the fact is, you weren’t there and you weren’t in a vulnerable position trying to weigh the consequences of complaining against someone higher up than you. Instead of complaining about the MeToo movement, you should ask yourself why an ENTIRE group of TONS of women felt like they couldn’t come forward until now.

    What does liking trans people have to do with being misogynistic or homophonic, “Stupid?” <– That question was rhetorical, in case you wanted to cry some more to me about what you think he is or is not.

    He’s right. Hang up. Walk out. Don’t sit there and pretend to be OK with it then come back crying 10 years later. Funny how if you get robbed at GUNPOINT, you have no problem calling the police, running, etc. But let a fat ginger whip it out and you lose all control of your limbs…..

    Because most people not only women are coward – we all don’t like fighting but we all expect another people fighting for us.

  • unknown

    have you’ve seen daves special? as a woman, i think he explained himself beautifully and i honestly think we’re in a society where it’s not ok to ask questions or even discuss when it comes to a sexual abuse allegation, and i’m sorry that’s not right. yes woman have been given shit throughout time but we can not forget to still ask questions and discuss such a serious allegation. i think too many people are punishing and jumping the gun when it comes to these allegations. no matter how horrible the accusation is, we should still look at the facts and investigate. Dave is just starting a conversation and there should be nothing wrong with that.

  • wearing

    what are you trying to say by typing all of this crap? that louis ck didn’t do it? he admitted it already. there’s no need to discuss giving louis ck a break, hon. and no, it’s not on the woman to push through. It’s on the man to stop showing his dick to everyone but his spouse.

    @facebook-100002817349876:disqus You dont have to complain against someone higher up. You dont have to go tattle tale unless it becomes a problem. If someone says something that makes me uncomfortable, all I do is say “I dont like that” You could even let them know how you feel in a joking manner.

    So many times I have complimented girls on their bodies. They laugh it off, no one gaf. Its so harmless. And we end up being friends, or associates and eat lunch every single day at work like friends. Then one day she stabs me in the back and say “me too” like it was some traumatic situation.

    These women are in the wrong, and just apart of the “victim movement” Its one thing to be forced, rapped, drugged. Thats criminal. But for me to comment on your butt one day, and then we become cool, and you go and do that to me?

    Lets say I comment on your body, and you tell me that your uncomfortable. Then I keep doing it over and over again, and impose on you. THATS a different problem, and you should report me. But none of this is going on. People are just calling men out for stupid stuff.

  • wearing

    You are caught in a shift where women felt it wasn’t okay to speak out but now it is. I know it’s confusing now, but it was never okay to comment on her butt. What different is that women want respect now, that’s all. and it shouldn’t be too hard to be nice. that’s all it is. at least going forward, you know now that you shouldn’t talk like that to a woman. if you wouldn’t say it to your boss, don’t say it to a female unless you’re dating her. Simple enough, right?

    Read my comments on this post

  • Legendary Trolly

    No, no, no. What I said, is that they didnt even care when it took place. If a girl comes up to me and say I got a nice butt, Idgaf about that mess. Its an empty flirt. These women flatout did not care at all when it took place.

    It was never disrespectful when I commented on someones butt. Thats just how people flirt. And some people give you compliments like that when they arent even attracted to you. Its just a compliment.

    Has nothing to do with respect, or disrespect. People have casual interactions with eachother and these are the type of comments they make.

    Has nothing to do with being “nice” or “mean” To me, thats a compliment if I say something nice about your butt. But I may not even be attracted to you. Its just a compliment.

    I have no problem joking with my boss like that. Who gaf!?

    And I said allot in that comment, that you didnt respond to. If its a problem then say its a problem. You dont care about the comment at all. You laughed it off, and we became legit FRIENDS down the line. And then you stab me in the back and call me out down the line.

    The women in this situation are cowards or straight evil. Who is going to throw someone under the bus, that they had great chemistry with?

  • wearing

    maybe they were cowards, like you said, who knows. but now you know to just keep in mind that it’s always best to not talk about someone’s appearance when it’s linked to sex (ie “nice ass”). there’s a new line in the sand, as it were.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Its not best to do this or not do that. Thats just how people talk, interact, and flirt. I was never “offended” when people did it to me. Thats how I know, that these evil women werent either. Because its simply how people interact.

    And your missing the big picture. The media created this evil “complain” energy. Now you have evil women exaggerating and stabbing famous guys in the back.

    Dave is right.

  • wearing

    no, dude. i’m trying to be nice and be gentle and this is i think the problem that other women have. so i’ll spell it out: no one wants your flirts. no one wants your compliments.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Your not trying anything. You seen that I was 100% right, and that it wasnt a legit issue. And that it was one thing to harass, and constantly make a person feel uncomfortable..But it was a completely different thing to make a small trivial comment, that no one gaf about.

    I also used myself as an example, noting that women have made comments towards me, and I didnt care less.

    By not admitting that I was right, you missed the real issue. Evil women exaggerating and stabbing their friends and associates in the back. Jumping on this “complain” bandwagon. We are so busy attacking a bunch of guys who felt they did nothing wrong. When we should really be weeding out the REAL victims, from these liars that just want to join the party. I feel that these women should be blacklisted, and ran out of the business.

  • Maria M.

    The idiot you are arguing with is making a point that flirt and sexual advances from men we are not interested in equals sexual harassment even if it happens only once and a man stops right after we tell him we are not interested. It’s not sexual harassment only if the interest is mutual and a woman is sending you sexual signals. But if you try to pick up a woman who seems indifferent to you, you are in fact harassing her. Although many people (myself for instance) don’t send obvious sexual signals and you can only find out if they are interested or not if you initiate a flirt. In 21st century you should try a different approach. You should flat out tell a woman who attracts you that you are sexually attracted to her and that you would like to flirt with her if she’s okay with that. Because if you don’t have our prior verbal PERMISSION to court us that’s sexual harassment. @wearing Well guess what b/tch, in a democracy every man and every woman has unalienable right to try to pick up any other person they find attractive without asking for their permission first and we won’t allow brain damaged losers like you to demonize or even criminalize flirt.
