Going to talk a little bit about with you the Louis CK controversy today paying attention to that. So Louis C K a couple of weeks ago did a show about an hour long. Stand up. Where's Louis CK, Ben really kind of been in hiding? But now he's back. So there's a forty eight minute audio recording of CK that surfaced Sunday on YouTube. It was described as a set delivered. December sixteenth at governors comedy club in levittown. CK starts the set by noting that he's had a rough time in the last fourteen months since multiple women came forward accusing him of sexual harassment and misconduct. CK acknowledged the truth of the claims made in a New York Times expose November of twenty seventeen. And then he goes onto so so his attitude, in fact, he pretty much says what are you gonna do take away? My birthday my life is over. I don't give a bleep. So now he's back up on stage. And if ever you worried that you'd say something politically incorrect, and it would damage your career that ship has sailed on Louis CK. He said that in a day. He lost thirty five million dollars. Exactly what that means. But he lost a lot of money as a result of his losing contracts and endorsements and shows and so forth. So he's he's out. So now, he doesn't care. I mean, if you thought he was vain or or profane before now, it's Louis CK unleashed. It's a whole new Louis C K, or it's it's it's Louis your let's put it that way. And so, you know, he talks about the sort of things that he might have in the past. I guess the LGBT community the Florida high school shooting and the students who found celebrity status sense gays, his doctor who's gay every ethnic brand there is at cetera et cetera..
