Sarah Silverman: Louis CK masturbated in front of me, but I consented!

Sarah Silverman has admitted Louis C.K. masturbated in front of her – but she consented to it.
The 51-year-old comedian was accused last year by several women, including Sarah’s own sister Laura, of exposing himself and masturbating in front of them often without consent and he later released a statement admitting the allegations were true.
And now Sarah – who is a longtime friend of Louis – has said he also exposed himself to her, but she fully consented to the actions that took place.
Speaking during an appearance on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ on Monday (22.10.18), she said: "I know I’m going to regret saying this. I’ve known Louis forever. I’m not making excuses for him, so please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals.
"Sometimes I’d go, ‘F**k yeah, I want to see that!’ … We were only just friends. Sometimes, yeah, I wanted to see it. It was amazing. Sometimes I would say, ‘F***ing no, gross,’ and we got pizza."
Sarah has voiced her opinion on Louis’ actions in the past, and claimed that whilst she was still angry and disappointed with her pal, she has not cut him out of life and believes he should be granted a second chance in his career as it is up to audiences to decide whether or not they want him back.
She said in May: "I think that there are people who were caught and there were people who were not caught, but the important thing is that they are forever changed. And if that’s the case, I don’t see any reason why they can’t continue being artists. Now, whether they’re popular artists or not is up to the audience. I have compassion. There are people that just deny everything they’re accused of and they continue to be the politicians or the filmmakers that they are. And there are people that come and say, I’m guilty of these things, and I’m wrong, and I want to be changed from this. And yet those are the ones that kind of are excommunicated forever. He’s my brother, so it’s hard. I may not have a very clear perspective on it, but I’m trying to. People are very sure about what is right and wrong until it comes to their front door."
Sarah famously addressed Louis’ behavior on the first season her late night talk show ‘I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman’, broadcast on streaming service Hulu, in which she asked: "Can you love someone who did bad things?"
