These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true ... 

Asking first isn't really a defence Louis.

The whole statement reads as, i'm great, i thought these people knew that, how didn't they understand that. I now have to say things i don't for a second believe, because future earnings are at stake.

The man's an egotistical cunt. I hope he dies painful and soon.

@Saint or sinner that's pretty much how I read it.

To be fair, and I make no apologies his actions.  He did apologise to the women in question a few years ago.  Well before it was public.  He does seem quite contrite.

All that does is make him slightly more advanced than the average(not a great feat).

I'm assuming this clip was a set up, but that doesn't excuse the intent (from a Frankie Boyle fan at his absolutely most offensive).

 Agree with the solution as well?

You know he's a predator.

Basically anybody famous is now fair game for any person they have had bad sex with.

 Now you have separated those statements, i do indeed feel bad.

 It should say painfully, not painful. Sorry.

He's still a egotistical predatory cunt(did i mention he deserves to die painfully? Preferably soon, if that's possible).

There's absolutely no genuine contrition in his lawyers statement at all.

This is starting to get surreal.

Mariah Carey has been accused of sexual harassing her bodyguard. Mariah summoned him to her room to 'move some luggage' for her, only for her to greet him wearing a see through negligee which was open. She is then alleged to have performed sexual acts upon herself with the intent that they be viewed by him. Blimey! The poor man! Imagine being forced to watch that!  And having to stand nose to nose with those magnificent breasts. I think i would be scarred for life!

 Hey, dudes can also be victims of sexual harrassment and assault. These attitudes really aren't helpful, and often stop men from speaking out about it. 

The idea that because the perpetrator is attractive it makes it ok is part of the problem. The reactions of some guys to the Weinstein allegations that the only reason women are complaining is because of the supposed undesirability of those making unwanted advances is bollocks. Men and women can be victims, the perceived attractiveness of those commiting the acts is not important. 

Absolutely this KRG.  

I know a man who had a woman flash her breasts at him on the common. He didn't find it amusing or arousing at all. 

 

God she must have been a right munter

 In this case Louis has seemed to admit guilt as much.  He masturbated in front of 4 women.  Some of his stand up was an admittance, he knew he'd done something wrong.  I don't think he was predatory person.  And he will pay, financially and career wise it's over for him now.

This reactionary "he needs to die now painfully" is wrong.

 There is very little contrition in any of this. Now it seems the thing to do is to say that they have issues and that they are "seeking treatment." They dont even bother to throw in sex additction any more which used to be the get out clause. Their lawyers seem to be telling them to say that they are "examining their behaviour," It is the police and the prosecution that need to examine their behaviour.

 I'm sorry, but I just don't buy it. 

Right up until the last moment, Louis and those around him were trying to keep this stuff quiet. As has been mentioned, people have tried to report on this for a while, and those people have had their livelihoods threatened. I'm not buying any of these bullshit apologies. He's sorry he got caught, not that he did it. 

I'd be pretty surprised if those that have so far come forward were the only people he did this too.

 Yep, just about sums it up for me.

 He's the same as the rest of them and i find it disturbing that people are trying to make excuses for him because they find his shows amusing.

He used his supposed art to play out his perverted fantasies, which in turn strengthened his power over others, as it normalised his actions(on national tv).

Why does everyone seem to be so in awe of these people, just because their faces regularly appear on the idiot box?

This article probably belongs in the "art or artist" thread, but you should never separate the two. That's just using one as an excuse to ignore the actions of the other.

At the same time, he’s built alternative-world versions of himself — as in the FX show “Louie” — where he’s tried on the identities of aging creep, attempted rapist and exhibitionist masturbator. He’s also made his character the victim of similar crimes: Louie has been forced to perform oral sex on a date and been anally penetrated by his friend Pamela as he screams in protest. In each case, he recovers easily from the violation — just as Pamela shrugs it off after Louie tries to drag her, kicking and screaming, to bed with him. These episodes garnered acclaim as canny twists on gender politics, and their critical reception was clearly vaulted by their engagement with current debates around consent.

These scenes now play differently. What once looked like creative provocations now read like justifications of a moral universe where women are as complicit in sexual violation as men are, and where sex that begins with force easily gives way to mutual desire.
