Comedian Louis CK has always been known for his “trangressive” comedy, being willing to take on and skewer virtually anyone or any topic. Nothing was ever over the line.
But he apparently touched a third rail in a recent stand-up set when he focused his attention on the Parkland shooting survivors who subsequently became media darlings, “gun violence” experts and gun control advocates.
“What are you doing? You’re young. You should be crazy, unhinged. Not in a suit, saying ‘I’m here to tell…’” C.K. said in the audio clip. “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 then, now I gotta listen to you talking?”
– Washington Post, Louis C.K. hinted at change. Then he mocked Parkland survivors.
