Leaked audio from a recent Louis C.K. performance revealed the comedian poking fun at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students turned gun-control activists.

“I don’t know,” said the comedian. “They testified in front of Congress, these kids. Like, what the fuck. 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’ … fuck you. You’re not interesting cause you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn’t get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I got to listen to you talking?”


Since the February 2018 Parkland massacre, several students who were present during the shooting, including David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez, have found fame and a wide audience as gun control activists. (RELATED: Here’s The Wounded Warrior’s Response To David Hogg That Is Going Viral)

Although Forbes reported that audio had been posted, then deleted from Youtube, comedy writer Jack Allison posted a two-minute clip Sunday to Twitter.

The set occurred Dec. 16, but it was unclear where the performance happened, TMZ reported.

C.K., 51, also poked fun at the the politically correct, “boring” younger generation. “What are you, old ladies?” he said, mocking them for trying to censor speech.

C.K.’s new routine also included a dig at people who consider themselves as “gender neutral” and want to be addressed as “they/them.”

“Oh, okay. You should address me as ‘there’ because I identify as a location,” C.K. said. “And the location is your mother’s cunt. It doesn’t have to be that nasty, but it can be.”

While many were offended at the comedian’s routine …

… others simply see the criticism as political correctness run amok.

C.K. is making a return to stand-up comedy after a year-long layoff following an admission to several accusations of sexual misconduct.
