When she spoke out about her friend Louis C.K. on Howard Stern’s radio show Monday, Sarah Silverman said she’d regret it, and it looks like she already has.
Silverman, 47, said that she used to allow C.K., 51, to masturbate in front of her, while acknowledging that he had done the same in front of other women in the industry without their consent. Silverman said that she and C.K. were equals, and therefore the power dynamic was different.
One of his accusers, Rebecca Corry, called her out on Twitter.
"To be real clear, CK had ‘nothing to offer me’ as I too was his equal on the set the day he decided to sexually harass me," Corry, 47, tweeted. "He took away a day I worked years for and still has no remorse. He’s a predator who victimized women for decades and lied about it."
Silverman owned it, tweeting: "Rebecca I’m sorry. Ugh this is why I don’t like weighing in. I can’t seem to do press 4 my show w/out being asked about it. But you’re right- you were equals and he f—ked with you and it’s not ok. I’m sorry, friend. You are so talented and so kind."
Corry acknowledged Silverman’s apology, tweeting: "Thank you. I know exactly how you feel. I can’t seem to live my life without getting rape & death threats, harassed & called a c—t regularly for simply telling the truth. I’m sorry your friend created this situation. We deserve to do our art without having to deal with this s—t."
