Former fans and colleagues of Louis CK have taken to social media to express their outrage at the recent revelations that the renowned comedian has been exposing himself and masturbating in front of women for years without their permission.
In a bombshell New York Times report, five women came forward with stories of sexually inappropriate behavior from CK, and the subsequent damage to their careers when they attempted to talk about it.
We’ve compiled some of the more relevant reactions here:

I was told to delete a tweet I wrote about Louis CK abusing women before I applied to a high-profile comedy job because the people conducting the hiring process might not like it. These women who have spoken up are brave, and we owe them so much.https://t.co/yECc41l1Uz

Louis CK is a good reminder that if someone is dogged *for years* with sexual predation rumors, it's probably because they're true

Gentlemen, comedy is often inappropriate. It is sometimes daring and audacious and shocking. But our behavior, in the real world, toward women – that doesn’t get a pass on inappropriate.

When you find out that Louis CK is actually the disgusting "every guy" that he talks about in his stand up. pic.twitter.com/cX2xnj03bC

In light of the news about Louis CK, many of you are probably now looking for a new favorite red headed comedian. Hello my name is Josh Denny, nice to meet you! Don’t worry, I don’t even masturbate in front of myself anymore. Welcome!

For everybody asking, I know and like Louis C.K. I won't defend him. This is inexcusable and he needs to address it. https://t.co/wyA5ImeDO7

From Weinstein to Kevin Spacey to Louis CK, those on the left have expressed universal outrage. It's called a moral compass. A shame those on the right seem to have misplaced theirs somewhere up Trump's rectum. Their defense of Roy Moore is the very definition of deplorable.

"just say hi bro it's easy"
Louis CK: "that's cool man but I think I'm gonna try something a little different"

Literally the only surprise in this article is that Louis C.K.'s publicist is named Lewis Kay and isn't a made up alter ego. https://t.co/VhbhmAkrEp

Louis CK probably hates that he’s finding out the truth behind “the people you meet on the way up are the ones you’ll meet on the way down.”

I don't remember when I heard the rumors about him. But I'm sure it was before the last time he was on Parks and Rec. And that sucks. And I'm sorry.

the louis ck news is upsetting. 😑 it's hard to learn that one of your favorites has been a predatory creep behind the scenes all these years. i'm glad people are feeling more comfortable to speak up right now, this bs has got to stop.
