Louis C.K. is trending again nearly 13 months after being accused by five women of sexual misconduct. A 48-minute audio recording of a recent stand-up show of his leaked to YouTube on Sunday, December 30,, and included jokes from C.K. about the Parkland shooting survivors and gender identity.
Mocking Parkland Victims
In the audio clip, labeled on the since-removed YouTube video as a December 16 show at Governor’s Comedy Club in Levittown, New York, the disgraced comedian mocks the younger generation, calling them “f–king boring.” He also rips today’s youth for identifying as gender neutral and wanting to use gender neutral pronouns.
A 2-minute clip of the routine has been posted on Twitter.

“They tell you what to call them. ‘You should address me as ‘they/them’ because I identify as gender neutral,’” the comedian said. “OK, OK … You should address me as ‘there’ because I identify as a location — and the location is your mother’s c–t!”
He also took aim at the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, whose classmates were killed during the Parkland, Florida, massacre on February 14.
“They testified in front of Congress, these kids. Like, what the f–k? What are you doing? You’re young. You should be crazy. You should be unhinged, not in a suit saying, ‘I’m here to tell …’ F–k you. You’re not interesting ’cause you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot!” C.K. ranted. “You pushed some fat kid in the way, and now I got to listen to you talking?!”
The routine struck a nerve on Twitter, with many accusing him of being overly offensive.
ANY CELEBS CHIME IN YET?

LouisCK even trying for a comeback is crap, but him mocking the Parkland survivors is beyond despicable. There is no comedy there at all.

This is disgusting, offensive, insensitive, inappropriate & just wrong. @Emma4Change, @davidhogg111, @AMarch4OurLives, @StoriesUntoldUS, @students4c & others have done more in 10.5 months to make this world safer than you have in your life. Shame on you. Act like you’re 51! https://t.co/zPTlb3LKYH

To anyone who knows Louis CK, please deliver this message for me. My daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting. My son ran from the bullets. My wife and I deal with loss everyday. Why don’t you come to my house and try out your new pathetic jokes? https://t.co/tZI9ThSciR

Not His First Controversial Set
After being accused of sexual misconduct in November 2017, which included allegedly masturbating in front of women without their consent, C.K. lost his production contract with FX Networks. The 51-year-old, apologized publicly, saying he would “step back and take a long time to listen.” In August, he was already back trying out new material at the Comedy Cellar in New York. As with this recent set, the routine was controversial. Two women who were in attendance told Vulture that the former “Louie” star made a rape joke. One of the women called it “so disgusting.”
