Louis C.K. Mocks Parkland Shooting Survivors in Leaked Audio From Set
His new material suggests he is not aiming at liberal audiences after his public shaming.
In a new comedy routine leaked online Sunday, disgraced comedian Louis C.K. was heard railing against the teenagers who survived the Parkland, Florida school shooting .
The audio was allegedly taken from the 51-year-old’s recent set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City earlier this month, HuffPost reported. It has since been taken down from YouTube — but not before transcripts of his performance began to circulate on Twitter.

“They testify in front of Congress, these kids, like what the f-ck, what are you doing?,” C.K. said, according to HuffPost. “You’re young, you should be crazy, you should be unhinged, not in a suit saying ’I’m here to tell’ … F-ck you.
“You’re not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot,” he continued. “Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way and now I need to listen to you talking?”
C.K. goes on to say that instead of being young activists, the teenagers who lived through the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that claimed 17 lives should instead be “finger-f–king each other and doing Jell-O shots.”
In November 2017, C.K. admitted to sexually harassing or assaulting numerous women.
“I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen,” he wrote in a statement at the time.
