Jon Stewart says he's 'stunned' by the allegations against Louis CK

Jon Stewart 'Stunned' by Louis CK Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Jon Stewart 'Stunned' by Louis CK Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Jon Stewart made awkward jokes a year ago when pressed about rumors that his friend and fellow comedian Louis C.K.'s acted inappropriately toward women.

The scandal has been called an open secret in comedy circles, though Stewart claimed he had no idea and said he wished he did more to stop C.K.

Stewart, 54, also said he was angry with himself for brushing off and defending rumors about C.K.'s bad behavior when they were brought to his attention directly.

But, he added, "You always find yourself back to a moment of 'Did I miss something".

He said: "We don't have any shortage of a family home, the problem is that the country is missing close to half a million apartments".

Four women accused the comedian of masturbating in front of them and a fifth said he asked if he could but she refused. And Stewart, who is hosting Night of Too Many Stars, was asked for his reaction to C.K. during an interview on Today promoting the benefit. "You give your friends the benefit of the doubt". I think it's gotten better over the years, but certainly when we started 30 years ago, it was really hard. He told Lauer he was "stunned" by the reported behavior of Louis C.K., and added, "Comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women". He laughed off the question and answered, "So the Internet said Louis harassed women?" "No, I didn't see the tweets". I would say, 'This story about you forcing these women to watch you jerk off, what is that, is that true?' He goes, 'No, it's not true. Honestly, I'm not that connected to that world. "I hadn't heard at that point of any of it", Stewart said.

Stewart addressed the clip in his Today interview. "And then, joke joke, and as he kept going I was like, "Look, I know this is very serious, but I know Louie, he's always been a gentleman to me" - which again, speaks to the blindness that I think a man has, which is like, 'Hey, he's a good guy, what are you talking about?'" "Digging around in it and finding that some people had done, it was hard, but we were all assured like, no, but we took somebody's word for it, and maybe that's an error on our part".

Stewart confirmed that he has not spoken to Louis C.K. since the New York Times published its report. The comic was scheduled to appear on Night of Too Many Stars opposite Stewart, but HBO cut the comedian's scheduled appearance on Thursday.
