In a comedy routine that was leaked online, Louis C.K. attacked mass shooting victims and America’s youth.
The bootleg recording, which surfaced on YouTube Sunday, was reportedly taken from the 51-year-old’s new set at New York City’s Comedy Cellar earlier this month. While it has since been removed from the site, the disgraced comedian could be heard mocking survivors of the Parkland School Shooting in excerpts shared on Twitter.
“They testify in front of Congress, these kids, like what the fuck, what are you doing? You’re young, you should be crazy, you should be unhinged, not in a suit saying ’I’m here to tell’ … Fuck you,” he said.
“You’re not interesting because you went to a high 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 need to listen to you talking?”

Louis C.K. also told the audience that rather than being politically engaged, millennials should be “finger-fucking each other and doing Jell-O shots.”

#louisck has a leaked set, and it’s the definition of bad writing and punching down. The plea for relevance really gives the whole 2 minutes a sour undertone – sorry, dude, but the red light means your time is officially up.

LouisCK even trying for a comeback is crap, but him mocking the Parkland survivors is beyond despicable. There is no comedy there at all.

That Louis CK audio isn’t even edgy, it’s an old conservative ranting about how in his day no one was woke and things were great

Hey Louis CK, as someone who is an alumni of that high school in Parkland that got shot up this year leaving 17 students and faculty dead, FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING “COMEDY”
