Louis C.K. is in hot water—again.
The comedian could be heard making fun of students that survived school shootings and young people that use they/them pronouns in a leaked audio tape from his December 16th stand-up. Although the full material was removed from YouTube, clips of the offensive set hit Twitter.
The 51-year-old comedian begins the set by railing against “political correctness,” and Twitter users quickly pointed out the similarities between Louis’ newest material and any other right-wing comedian complaining about “snowflakes.”
“I’m a little disappointed in the younger generation, honestly,” he can be heard saying in the video above. “I’m 51 years old, and when I was like 18, in my 20’s, we were idiots. We were getting high; we were doing fucking mushrooms and shit. Older people were like, ‘You gotta get your shit together and we were like fuck you!’ I was excited to be in my 50’s and see people in their 20’s and be like, ‘You’re crazy!’ But they’re not. They’re fucking boring, going, ‘You shouldn’t say that!’ What are you? An old lady?”
The disgraced comedian then went after the pronouns people would prefer to be called, acknowledging that there are some who would like to be addressed as they or them.
“They’re like royalty. They tell you what to call them,” the comedian said, in a sneering tone. “‘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 cunt. It doesn’t have to be that nasty but it can be.”
The Louie star then set his sights on the survivors of school shootings. “They testify in front of Congress, these kids? What are they doing? You’re young! You should be crazy! You should be unhinged! Not in a suit. You’re not interesting,” he said, referencing the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
