Louis C.K. mocks Parkland students in audio of stand-up set

December 31, 2018 - 1:25 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Audio has emerged of Louis C.K. apparently mocking the students-turned-activists from the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

The sound-only recording was posted Sunday in a since-removed YouTube video that said it was from a Dec. 16 stand-up set at a Levittown, New York, comedy club.

On the recording, C.K. says the students are "not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot." He adds: "You didn't get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way." A message seeking comment left at C.K.'s website wasn't immediately returned.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed in the shooting, called C.K. "pathetic."

The 51-year-old comedian disappeared from public life after apologizing for sexual misconduct in November of 2017, but since August he has been making unannounced appearances at comedy clubs.
