The #MeToo movement is not over yet with Louis C.K., and Sarah Silverman is not helping.
Just as the embarrassed comedian is Trying to mount a comeback (and getting rejection), Silverman went to Howard Stern's radio show and said C.K. I used to masturbate in front of her too, but with her permission.
"I do not know if I'm going to regret having said this," Silverman said. "I've always known Louis, I'm not making excuses, please do not take this in this way, we're partners, we're the same, when we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me."
Sometimes he said yes, sometimes not, he told Stern.
"We speak openly," he said of his consensual experience with the comic. "We were letting our flags freak."
Silverman was on Stern's Sirius radio show to promote his "I Love You, America" show and ended up talking about a variety of topics, including his experiences with his partner and comedian C.K.
The comedian Louis C.K. the last to be accused of sexual misconduct while the scandals continue in the entertainment industry.

The latter suffered damage that destroyed his career last year when several women accused him of masturbating in front of them without his consent, a behavior he later acknowledged and publicly apologized.
Lately, he has gone to the comedy clubs to get a preview of the new material stand up, get cheers from some audiences and teasing others.
Silverman said that the women who accused C.K. They were justified in their outrage. But she believes that he now feels a genuine remorse.
"I'm not saying everyone should hug Louis again," he said.
Later, Silverman added: "I think he has remorse, I just want him to speak on stage, he will have to find his way or not find it."
She said she believes that he did not understand the implications of her behavior, which was undone by her inability to cope with her sudden fame and the power that flowed from her.
Sarah Silverman says that the late comedian Garry Shandling formed her as an artist and as a human being. (June 7th)
"I'm not saying what he did was fine, I'm just saying that at one point, when he became influential, not even famous, but influential in the world of comedy, that changes," he said. "Once he became powerful, even within his community, he felt he was the same person, but the dynamic was different and it was not right."
His interview with Stern quickly made headlines and sparked a reaction from Rebecca Corry, one of the women who accused C.K. of sexual misconduct.
Corry tweeted on Monday, "To be very clear, CK had nothing to offer me since I was also his equal on the set the day he decided sexually (harassing me). He took away a day that I worked on He is a predator who victimized women for decades and lied about it. "
Silverman has talked about C.K. before. Shortly after the revelations about him, she opened an episode of his show with a monologue about him, asking: "Can you love someone who did bad things?"
As always with Stern or Silverman, do not bother listening if you do not approve the multiple F bombs and graphic conversations about sex, not to mention general follies.
