YOUR DAILY TREACHER: Louis CK’s Audience Must Be Punished.

Last weekend, disgraced comedian Louis CK made a surprise appearance at the Skankfest comedy festival in Brooklyn. It was bad enough that the fallen funnyman dared to show his face in public, after being banished from society in 2017 for sexcrime. But what happened next was simply unacceptable.

The crowd cheered for him.

Cheered.

Let that sink in.

Now the festival’s venue, Brooklyn Bazaar, has reacted to this hate crime on their premises:

And thus begins yet another self-induced Maoist struggle session. “A strange game. The only winning move is not to play,” as the computer said at the end of the movie War Games.

And speaking of movies: Judi Dench Defends Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey’s Work: “Are We Just Not Going to See All Those Films?”

“What kind of agony is that?” Dench told the latest issue of Radio Times, The Guardian reported. “Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [the London theater where Spacey served as artistic director] and everything that he did – how wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?”

Dench added: “You cannot deny somebody a talent. You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting [the painter was sentenced for murder after a brawl]. You might as well never have gone to see Noel Coward [who was accused of harassment].”

To slightly revise and extend a remark by Ray Bradbury, there is more than one way to burn a book or a movie. And the world is full of people running around with lit matches.
