Garo­falo de­fends pal Louis C.K.

Toronto Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Janeane Garo­falo is tak­ing a pub­lic stand in sup­port of her old friend Louis C.K. While be­ing in­ter­viewed on the Bust pod­cast Poptarts, things got heated when Garo­falo backed the co­me­dian, in­clud­ing his re­cent ap­pear­ances at venues like New York’s Com­edy Cel­lar.

“Leave Louis C.K. alone. Enough with that … there are so many is­sues we’ve got to be mo­ti­vated on. He’s been my friend … since 1985, and I think he has suf­fered,” said Garo­falo.

Louis C.K.’s ap­pear­ance at the Com­edy Cel­lar in Au­gust was met with con­tro­versy from many who ques­tioned whether he should be al­lowed back less than a year after be­ing ac­cused of sex­ual mis­con­duct amid the #MeToo move­ment.
