Chappelle then turned his focus to one of Louis C.K.'s accusers, the woman who told The New York Times that Louis C.K. masturbating in front of her stopped her from pursuing a career in comedy.

In The Bird Revelation, which was released on New Year's Eve (31Dec17), Dave addressed the sexual misconduct scandal that swept across Hollywood towards the end of 2017 and included allegations against figures such as Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and fellow comedian Louis C.K. After Louis admitted the stories were true, he lost a partnership deal with HBO and had his movie I Love You, Daddy dropped. "I know it sounds f-ed up and I'm not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, 'Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him.' Bitch, you don't know how to hang up the phone?"

"I listened to them say naive poor white people things: 'Donald Trump is going to go to Washington and he's going to fight for us.' I'm standing there thinking, 'you dumb m--". That was like, I don't know, it might be disproportionate.

"Kal pesh ho sakta hai (It could come up tomorrow)", the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters here. By just uttering talaq thrice, any Muslim man can legally give diverse to his wife by using the word talaq.

But, he said, "Louis was like the turning point". I didn't even know that was possible!' said Chappelle, referring to the multiple claims that the House of Cards star groped and harassed young men. Come on man, that's a brittle spirit. "That is a brittle-a** spirit, that is too much, this grown-a** woman", Chappelle said of Schachner.

But Chappelle didn't stop there. "I hate to say it, [these women] all sound weak", he adds, before imagining Dr Martin Luther King's response to CK's advances. Chappelle then wondered how Schachner is going to survive in show business if she finds C.K's actions as an actual obstacle to her dreams.

Schachner told the New York Times that the 2003 experience in which Louis C.K. masturbated while talking to her on the phone left her dumbfounded.

In addition to the 911 call, police also released a brief video of body camera footage from another officer at the scene. She said her granddaughter was forced to step over her dying uncle and that no guns were found in the home.

But now he has a daughter, he feels a little differently, hoping that they win the fight against sexual assault and harassment because 'if you win, she wins, and I'm rooting for you'.

"And not to victim-blame, but it seems like the kind of situation that a gay 14-year-old kid would get himself into", he said. "Oh, you grabbed a titty in '95!' 'Alright fellas, I'm out", he says, re-enacting the actor's very public withdrawal from the issue after speaking out against his former mentor Weinstein.
