Audio recorded during a Louis C.K. comedy show reveals the already-disgraced comedian mocking the Parkland school shooting victims and nonbinary people.
In the set, the comedian makes fun of the high school shooting survivors that have been lobbying in Congress for stricter gun control.
"Testifying in front of Congress, these kids, what the f***?" he said. "What are you doing? Cause you went to a high school where kids got shot, why does that mean I have to listen to you? Why does that make you interesting? You didn't get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way and now I gotta listen to you talking?"
Louis C.K. also mocks gender nonbinary people, saying, "They're like royalty! They tell you what to call them. 'You should address me as they/them, because I identify as gender neutral.' Oh, OK. You should address me as 'there' because I identify as a location. And the location is your mother's c**t."
The audio surfaced on Sunday on a YouTube page that has been since removed, according to TMZ. It's not clear yet where or when Louis C.K. was performing when the recording was made.
Here's the audio.

That Louis CK audio isn’t even edgy, it’s an old conservative ranting about how in his day no one was woke and things were great— Nathaniel Friedman (@freedarko) December 31, 2018
People keep rediscovering the comedy style Louis CK has had for his entire career. https://t.co/0xDwiGto1p— tokyotaster (@neontaster) December 31, 2018
Just last week the comedian came under fire for using the N-word in a video that surfaced online.
These latest controversies come on the heels of accusations against him that surfaced in November 2017 during the rise of the #MeToo movement, when five women said C.K. of sexual harassment and abuse. He admitted all of the allegations were true and apologized.
But this isn't the first time Louis C.K. has been back on the stage since those allegations came to light. He went back on the stage in August for an impromptu, surprise performance at the Comedy Cellar in New York.
