All five shared stories similar in nature, claiming that the comedian asked to masturbate in front of them or physically did so without their consent. Shortly after, C.K. himself responded to the allegations in a statement also published in the Times, in which he said, "These stories are true". "At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true", he wrote.

Silverman is the host of the Hulu talk series I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, which has been airing new episodes this month. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly".

Sarah Silverman appeared on the October 22 episode of Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show and was inevitably asked about her friend, Louis C.K.

"I know I'm going to regret saying this", Silverman told Stern, according to IndieWire. I've known Louis forever, I'm not making excuses for him, so please don't take that away. "We are peers. We are equals", she prefaced.

About allowing him to self-pleasure while she was watching, she said, "Sometimes I'd go, 'F-k yeah, I want to see that!' ..."

Silverman said that she can't be compared to C.K.'s accusers "because he could offer me nothing", suggesting that he had no power over her. Sometimes, yeah, I wanted to see it, it was unbelievable. It was awesome. Sometimes I'd be like, 'F***ing gross, no, ' and we'd get pizza. "I'm not saying that's okay because once he got famous even just in the comedy community that changes everything and it makes it not okay, including as he said putting these women in a predicament".

"Even in that article they talk about how he went on tried to connect with some of these women to say he fucked up and wronged them", Silverman pointed out. As for whether he should have a comeback, "I believe he has remorse", she said.

"It took him a long time to realize that that was not okay, but it just seems like when people come forward and say 'I did this and I have enormous remorse and I want to make it right.'" she continued. However, she said, "comics don't like to be told what to do, so he's just going to have to find his way or not find his way, and people are going to watch him or not watch him".

According to the outlet, Silverman previously spoke about the allegations against C.K. previous year.
