“I’ve been speaking up,” she said, pausing briefly before naming names. “It’s Louis C.K., locking the door and masturbating in front of women comics and writers. I can’t tell you—I’ve heard so many stories. Not just him, but a lot of them. And it’s just par for the course. It’s just shit women have to put up with.”
Barr later followed up with the website to clarify her statements telling them, "These allegations [against Louis C.K.] have been leveled and talked about for years. I do not have first hand knowledge, though have heard women make these allegations.”
In an interview with Vulture last year, C.K. refused to answer a question regarding rumors that he has sexually assaulted women. CK has not released a statement and he probably won't.
