A recently released recording purportedly hears disgraced actor-comedian Louis C.K. tearing into survivors of the Parkland School shooting and millennials who insist on being addressed with so-called gender fluid pronouns.

The Louis C.K. audio, published on YouTube on Sunday before being swiftly taken down, reportedly came during a December set at New York City’s famed Comedy Cellar.

At one point, the Louis star goes after the Parkland students campaigning for gun control.

“They testify in front of Congress, these kids? What are they doing? You’re young, you should be crazy, you should be unhinged, not in a suit. You’re not interesting,” C.K. said. “Because you went to a high school where kids got shot? Why does that mean I have to listen to you?… You didn’t got shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way, and now I’ve gotta listen to you talking?”

A portion of the set was posted to Twitter.

“[Young people] are just boring. Fucking telling, ‘You shouldn’t say that.’ What are you, an old lady? What are you fucking doing?” C.K. said. “’Nyeah, that’s not appropriate.’ Fuck you! You’re a child! Why aren’t you finger-fucking each other and doing Jell-O shots?”

“They’re like royalty, they tell you what to call them,” he continued. “’You should address me as they/them, because I identify as gender neutral.’ Oh, okay. Okay. You should address me as ‘there,’ because I identify as a location. And the location is your mother’s cunt.”

C.K. later launched into a rant about visiting his doctor.

“And he said, ‘You need to stop eating ice cream.’ I said, ‘You need to go fuck yourself.” C.K. said. “And don’t ever touch me again, you old faggot. You old fucking Jewish fag. Get your fucking hands off me. You’re fucking with my ice cream, I get upset.”

Most of the 51-year-old’s jokes are met with uproarious laughter and applause but social media users weren’t amused, many of them firing off on C.K. over his punchlines.

In November 2017, C.K. admitted in a lengthy letter to masturbating in front of multiple women. Within days, HBO had stripped C.K.’s content from its on-demand platform. FX, the network that gave him a multi-million dollar overall deal, and which aired five seasons of his Emmy-winning series Louie, severed ties with him. A planned Netflix special was also nixed.

Mere months before his fall from left-wing Hollywood grace, C.K. was making headlines for comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. Days before the 2016 presidential election, C.K. came out strong for Hillary Clinton, telling the Conan O’Brien audience he supports the Democrat because she is “talented and super-smart,” and would be tough as America’s “first mother.”
