Amy Schumer has condemned the fact that comics accused of abuse and sexual misconduct were allowed to return to the stage.
The comedian made the remarks in a new interview in which she spoke about abusive men in the industry.
Without naming names, the actor and comedian said The Hollywood Reporter: “I don’t think the coercion and the exploitation and the masturbating in front of people is cool and I don’t think these guys are allowed to come back.”
The reference to “masturbating in front of people” appears to be aimed at comedian Louis CK, who admitted to behaving inappropriately after several women accused him of wrongdoing.
Since the scandal surfaced in 2017, CK has been nominated for a Grammy, released two stand-up specials and toured internationally.
In 2020, Schumer asked abused women to come forward and set up a hotline for those who wished to do so.
Commenting on the number of people who have reached out to her, she said, “It’s all been really sad and disappointing.”
Schumer had previously been arrested for protesting Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court after the judge was indicted on sexual assault charges.
the train wreck Star has also blasted former President Donald Trump as a “sexual assault monster.” The former reality TV star has been accused by at least 25 women of inappropriate behavior towards them.
