Disgraced comedian Louis C.K. performed another surprise set at New York’s Comedy Cellar late Sunday, and many patrons were unhappy about it. According to Page Six, a few women walked out.

The comic has been accused by five women of masturbating in front of them. He later admitted to the allegations. However, during his surprise show, he did not acknowledge his #MeToo controversy. He was largely shunned by comedy clubs since the allegations were revealed in a New York Times story, but last month, he made his first surprise appearance at the Comedy Cellar and received a standing ovation. Since that first performance, the comedy club as started a new policy, “Swim At Your Own Risk,” where you can ask for refunds if an unannounced performer is “not your cup of tea.”

The Hollywood Reporter writes that while some people did walk out of Sunday’s show when C.K. took the stage, others greeted him “warmly.”
