Louis C.K. Makes Fun Of Gender Neutral Pronouns, Parkland Shooting Survivors
In 2017, Louis C.K. admitted to engaging in sexual misconduct. He vowed to “step back and take a long time to listen.” He returned last month doing stand-up with sets at The Comedy Cellar in New York City. It appears he didn’t listen for long enough.
On Sunday, videos surfaced on YouTube of the comedian’s new material. Apparently, it was recorded during a December 16 set at the Governor’s Club in Levittown, New York. Throughout the set, the 51-year-old comedian attacks the LGBTQ movement and school shooting survivors.
C.K. seemed to be particularly upset with younger trans and non-binary people for using they/them pronouns and with the young survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. who’ve since engaging in anti-gun activism and politics.

“They’re just boring!” he began. “Telling you, ‘you shouldn’t say that.’ What are you, an old lady? What the f–k are you doing? ‘That’s not appropriate.’ F–k you, you’re a child! Why aren’t you finger-f—–g each other and doing Jello shots?” C.K. can be heard joking. “They’re like royalty, telling you how to address them. ‘You should address me as they/them because I identify as gender-neutral.’ Okay. You should address me as ‘there’ because I identify as a location, and the location is your mother’s c–t.”
Then his Parkland jokes began. C.K. said, “They testified in front of Congress, these kids! What the f–k? What are they doing? You’re young! You should be crazy, not in a suit saying, ‘I’m here to tell you…’ F–k you! You’re not interesting because you went to a school where kids got shot. 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 gotta listen to you talking?”
C.K. has previously come under fire for bigotry, aside from his sexual misconduct. In 2008, C.K. did a bit on why he still uses the term “f—-t.” In 2011, he also did a bit which included him saying the n-word multiple times and defending his right to say it.
