Stephen Colbert acknowledges the Louis CK accusations

Stephen Colbert acknowledges the Louis CK accusations”

"Then, I have some really bad news", Colbert said. However, he canceled his appearance, as well as the New York premiere following The New York Times' bombshell report: five women came forward to accuse the comedian of sexual misconduct, launching an investigation.

"I don't remember when I heard the rumors about him", Schur tweeted. "La la la la la!'".

The allegations, which tell similar stories of C.K. getting young female comedians behind closed doors (or sometimes on the phone) and then masturbating in front of them, have been whispered about or alluded to for a while. Comedy fans watching on Thursday were paying specific attention to Colbert, as C.K. was not only slated to appear on Late Show before the story broke, but also shares a history with Colbert; in fact, C.K. was Colbert's boss for a time when the two worked on The Dana Carvey Show.

Colbert's monologue then took a lighter tone.

"When I saw this story today, I thought, 'Man, this is the most pervy story of the day", Noah said.

"Ladies of the world, you've got a raw deal", Colbert said while sporting a soul patch in preparation for his own performance.

"All women in Hollywood should win double Oscars for acting like all the men [in Hollywood] were cool, all along, every single one of them."

While the distributor of C.K.'s film confirmed the cancellation to Variety with a simple and apologetic statement, Colbert used his opening monologue to lightly criticize the scandalized comedian.

"Like, at this point, we're gonna need a new Oscar category this year: best actor whose movies we can't watch anymore", he told his audience with a photo of Louis C.K. over his shoulder. This sh*t is insane. "My god, these accusations are so damning voters are either going to force him off the ballot or make him president", Colbert said - a reference to the numerous sexual assault and harassment allegations against President Donald Trump, who once bragged to Billy Bush about grabbing women "by the p-sy" in the now infamous Access Hollywood tapes.

"It's like the Bible says, 'Let he who is without sin, not later be found out to have a record of sexual misconduct", Klepper joked, before adding, "I think I have a weird Bible".

"Man, politics is so full of perverts and deviants". As he uttered those words, an image of the Times exposé appeared on-screen, at which point he yelled, "Damn it!"
