Louis dropped in at the Comedy Cellar in New York City late Monday night for a surprise set. While some people in the audience got a laugh, a lot of people don't find anything funny about the situation.
"Louis CK being 'banished' from stand-up comedy wasn't some kind of petty punishment, it was a f**king workplace safety issue," comedian Bris Farley tweeted.
His was just one of many outraged tweets about Louis's surprise return to the stage. Many people feel he shouldn't come back to work given the severity of his crimes.
Last November, the comedian admitted to sexually harassing multiple women comedians and colleagues. He'd repeatedly mastubrated in front of several women with whom he worked.
"These stories are true," Louis said after the allegations were revealed. "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 dick 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.”
