LOUIS C.K. SPARKS BACKLASH (AGAIN) AMID ATTEMPTED CAREER REVIVAL

Disgraced funnyman Louis C.K., 52, is adding tour dates to his stand-up tour amid continued backlash. C.K. will perform at the Peoria Civic Center in Illinois on Nov. 15, which tickets going on sale October 18th. He also has shows in Virginia, North Carolina and Rockford, Illinois.

C.K. is re-emerging after admitting to sexual misconduct against multiple women. He said in a statement in 2017: "At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d–k without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d–k isn't a question. It's a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly."

Since re-emerging a year later, he has stirred up outrage on numerous occasions for jokes about mass-shooting victims and nonbinary people. Social media users are currently fuming over a show in which he reportedly wondered if gay people are upset by the level of acceptance they receive in society today, opining that some may have enjoyed engaging in behavior seen as "bad."
