Jon Stewart reveals his thoughts on the Louis CK scandal

Not Released

You always find yourself back to a moment of, did I miss something? "I tried to think of it in terms of, I've had friends who've had compulsions, like drinking or gambling or drugs, and we've lost some of them".

Stewart spoke with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie to promote his upcoming HBO special, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs.

"You get mad at yourself, too, for laughing it off or for thinking that didn't happen", Stewart added.

"I think it was [the right decision]", Stewart said. "You feel anger at what he did to people".

This means that the left-wing Stewart is the only person on the planet stunned by this news, stunned by allegations that have been reported on for over two years, stunned by what has been rumored about, talked about, and discussed within the comedy world - which is Stewart's world, by the way - for over a decade.

Stewart went on to say that "comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women" and even though it's gotten better in recent years, it is still a tough field for women. "The idea that there was this added layer of pressure and manipulation, and fear and humiliation - and not just [him]".

Stewart, who has been friends with Louis C.K. for over 30 years, said he hasn't spoken to the comedian since the fallout.

The worldwide distributors are following the lead of The Orchard, which announced it was canceling the film's USA release on Friday, one day after C.K. admitted his accusers were telling the truth. He laughed off the question and answered, "So the Internet said Louis harassed women?" "I didn't see the tweets".

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov said C.K. did masturbate in front of them in his hotel room in Aspen, Colorado during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. "What are you talking about?'" Honestly, I'm not that connected to that world. And as he kept going, I was, 'Look, I know this is very serious. "Digging around in it and finding that some people had done, it was hard, but we were all assured like, no, but we took somebody's word for it, and maybe that's an error on our part". When an audience member asked Stewart whether the then-unconfirmed rumors about C.K. had crossed his radar, Stewart responded in an offhanded way, first with jokes and then with reassurances of C.K.'s good nature.
