Comedian Sarah Silverman was ripped for appearing to make light of disgraced comedian Louis C.K.’s habit of masturbating in front of women and reportedly threatening to hurt the careers of others.

Sarah Silverman reflected on her time with Louis C.K. and his admission that he masturbated in front of unwilling women Monday in an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM. The Hulu talk show host revealed that he would ask her if he could do it, and she would sometimes say yes.

“I’m not making excuses for [Louis C.K.]–please don’t take this that way. But we are peers, we’re equals, so, you know — when we were kids and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me, sometimes I’d go, ‘Fuck yeah, I wanna see that!” the comedian said.

Silverman also said that Louis C.K. had nothing to “offer” her at the time, so it wasn’t “analogous” to women who accused him of sexual harassment.

These comments prompted Rebecca Corry, one of the women who accused Louis C.K. of masturbating in front of her without her consent, to rail against Silverman.
“To be real clear, CK had ‘nothing to offer me’ as I too was his equal on the set the day he decided to sexually harass me. He took away a day I worked years for and still has no remorse. He’s a predator who victimized women for decades and lied about it.” Corry said.

Silverman apologized, saying, “Rebecca I’m sorry. Ugh this is why I don’t like weighing in. I can’t seem to do press 4 my show w/out being asked about it. But you’re right- you were equals and he fucked with you and it’s not ok. I’m sorry, friend. You are so talented and so kind.”

“Thank you. I know exactly how you feel. I can’t seem to live my life without getting rape & death threats, harassed & called a cunt regularly for simply telling the truth,” Corry responded. “I’m sorry your friend created this situation. We deserve to do our art without having to deal with this shit,” Corry said back.”
