Jon Stewart "Stunned" by Louis CK Scandal

Not Released

And you always find yourself back to a moment of 'did I miss something?

"I try to think of it in terms of, I've had friends who have had compulsions and have done things, gambling or drinking and drugs, and we've lost some of them, some of them have died", Stewart said.

Comedian and former Daily Show host Jon Stewart was on the Today show Tuesday morning to help promote his charity comedy event Night of Too Many Stars.

"You get mad at yourself to for laughing it off, for thinking, 'that didn't happen, '" he added later. "Could I have done more?' I think we all could have".

"You feel anger at what he did to people", he said.

Jon Stewart is really hoping you don't think everyone in Hollywood is a total sleaze.

Stewart, 54, also said he was angry with himself for brushing off and defending rumours about C.K.'s bad behaviour when they were brought to his attention directly.

"I know Louis - he's always been a gentleman to me, which I think speaks to the blindness that a man has", Stewart said. The women who came forward said Louis C.K. either masturbated in front of them, asked if he could masturbate in front of them, or was heard masturbating while on the phone with them. Appearing on a podcast hosted by David Axelrod, the former chief campaign strategist for Barack Obama, Stewart was asked by an audience member if there was a chance C.K. might be The Daily Show's last guest with Stewart as host, with the audience member, Dan Ackerman, alluding to the allegations surrounding C.K. The idea that there was this added layer of pressure and manipulation and fear and humiliation. He laughed off the question and answered, "So the Internet said Louis harassed women?"

"I didn't see the tweets", he went on.

The comedy world is not my world, and I was not "stunned' by this news. I don't know what you're talking about, I don't know what to say".

Though it's a little unclear, Stewart then suggests that he and his team looked into the allegations at that point but that "we were all assured, no, and we took somebody's word for it, and maybe that's an error on our part".

The fallout continues for Louis C.K. after the comedian confessed to sexual misconduct last week, including global distributors dropping his new movie I Love You, Daddy and additional names in comedy condemning his behavior.
