Jon Stewart "Stunned" by Louis CK Scandal

Screengrab via TODAY  YouTube

The fallout continues for Louis C.K. after the comedian confessed to sexual misconduct last week, including worldwide distributors dropping his new movie I Love You, Daddy and additional names in comedy condemning his behavior.

He also revealed he hasn't spoken to the disgraced funnyman about it.

"So you feel anger at what he did to people", Stewart said. Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov said C.K. did masturbate in front of them in his hotel room in Aspen, Colorado during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. He's always been a gentleman - to me.' Again, it speaks to the blindness I think a man has, which is like, 'Hey, he's a good guy! "You give your friends the benefit of the doubt".

Stewart, a friend of CK's, appeared on the Today show when he was asked what his reaction had been upon hearing the news, to which he said that he had been "stunned".

Stewart praised the women who came forward - four comedians who came out publicly and one comedy-industry worker who did not identify herself - for their bravery.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK): Financial Health and Analyst Ratings
They expect this year's earnings to rise 15.93% year-over-year to $4.22, followed by 5.92% growth in the next year to $4.47. CIBC Asset Management Inc increased its holdings in shares of Chesapeake Energy Corporation by 0.6% in the second quarter.

Stewart went on to say that "comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women" and even though it's gotten better in recent years, it is still a tough field for women.

On the subject of laughing it off, the Chicago Tribune yesterday published a video clip of Stewart being asked about the stories surrounding C.K. and sexual misconduct that had been swirling around for years. "You know who you're talking to, right?" he tells the audience member, who cited a Gawker article and a podcast by comedian Jen Kirkman. He laughed off the question and answered, "So the Internet said Louis harassed women?" I try to think of it in terms of-I've had friends who have compulsions, and who have done things, gambling or drinking or drugs, and we've lost some of them.

"A year ago, I was doing a podcast with David Axelrod and a man in the audience asked me about it", Stewart said on Tuesday.

Still, Stewart said he hopes that with emerging allegations against C.K. "I'm not that connected to that world". I don't know what you're talking about....

Though it's a little unclear, Stewart then suggests that he and his team looked into the allegations at that point but that "we were all assured, no, and we took somebody's word for it, and maybe that's an error on our part". His publicist parted ways with Louis C.K last Friday.
