Ste­wart voices anger over Louis C.K.

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Co­me­dian Jon Ste­wart is an­gry at him­self for not pay­ing closer at­ten­tion to sex­ual mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions made against his friend Louis C.K.

The standup comic hit head­lines last week when five women went pub­lic with their ac­cu­sa­tions in a New York Times

ex­pose, with the fun­ny­man sub­se­quently con­fess­ing the claims were all true.

For­mer The Daily Show host ste­wart ad­mits he was “stunned” by Louis’ can­did state­ment in re­sponse to the Times piece, in which the women re­called var­i­ous in­stances of Louis mas­tur­bat­ing in front of them or ask­ing to per­form the sex act while they watched.

“you give your friends the ben­e­fit of the doubt,” Jon rea­soned on the

Today show.
