Disgraced comedian Louis CK has sunk to a new low and sparked outrage for making fun of the Parkland High School shooting victims, according to leaked audio of a recent stand-up act.
It’s been a rough year for the comedian after his name was embroiled in scandal when he admitted to sexually harassing five women in late 2017.
But he’s slowly making a return to the stand-up stage and this time is dragging the reputations high school shooting victims along with him in his performance at the Governor’s Comedy Club in Long Island, New York on December 16.

CK ranted about Parkland high school shooting survivors who have turned into gun reform activists saying: ‘Why do I have to listen to you? You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way.’ Parkland survivor David Hogg pictured speaking at the March For Our Lives rally against gun violence in Washington DC on March 24, 2018
‘They testify in front of Congress these kids…What are you doing? You’re young you should be crazy, you should be unhinged. Not in a suit saying “I’m here to tell you…” F**k you,’ he said in the 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? Why does that make you interesting. You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I gotta listen to you talking,’ he added.
All the while the audience is hooting and howling in laughter.
Students David Hogg, 18, and Emma Gonzalez, 18, became faces of the gun reform movement following the devastating Parkland shooting on February 14 where 17 people were killed at the hands of gunman Nikolas Cruz.
The comedian also made fun of youngsters and belittled gender-identity terms in his set.
‘I’m so disappointed in the younger generation honestly because I’m 51 years old and I was 18 and in my 20s we were idiots. We were getting high doing mushrooms and sh*t…I was kind of excited to be in my 50s and see people in my 20s and be like these kids are crazy, these kids are nice…but they’re not!’ he said.
‘They’re just boring. F**king telling me you shouldn’t say that. What are you an old lady?…You should address me…as they/them because I identify as gender neutral. You should address me as there…because I’m a location…and the location is your mother’s c***,’ he added.

He compared them to royalty for demanding specific gender titles that they feel comfortable with.
The video of his set was posted on YouTube.
In his hour-long spiel he talked about his difficult year and how he lost $35million and alluded it to the sexual misconduct allegations against him.
‘I live in New York. I f**king hate it now. I loved New York for 20 years. Now I’d rather be in Auschwitz, honestly. I mean Auschwitz now,’ he said.
In previous sets he said he feels that everyone hates him and was booed in public.
The clip sparked outrage on Twitter with users calling him a ‘monster’.
‘I’m listening to the leaked Louis set and it’s very clear hes just going to tour red states for the rest of his life to rapturous crowds, like Trump,’ one Twitter user said.
‘There was always part of me that was hoping he’d turn things around, put out a better apology, and make a huge comeback…but I think that part of me just died listening to this,’ another said.
‘OMG, I just…I’m so embarrassed that I used to think he was funny. This isn’t even doubling down. He just went full on monster,’ one former fan tweeted.
‘Why were people in the audience laughing? He was mocking child survivors who watched their classmates get slaughtered?’ a critic wrote.
‘Making fun of the Parkland’ survivors/activists sure is a bold way to begin rebranding after sexual assault allegations. Yikes,’ another added.
The comedian returned to the comedy stage in August. There are no tour dates listed for him on his professional website.
Five women accused Louis CK of sexual misconduct in November 2017, which he later admitted to. The women were mostly comedians who said he asked to watch them masturbate or forced them to watch him masturbate.
For years rumors swirled that the comedian used his status and power to harass female comedians.
After the allegations arose, the comedian immediately confessed they were true.
‘These stories are true. What I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d*ck isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly,’ he said in a statement released just a day after the allegations came forward.
Despite his confession, he faced no legal consequences for the sexual misconduct.
However, his stand-up special was cut from Netflix and his relationship with HBO and FX were also axed.
Just nine months later he returned to the spotlight.
