Silverman went on Howard Stern’s radio show and said C.K. used to masturbate in front of her, too, but with her permission.
“I don’t know if I’m going to regret saying this,” Silverman said. “I’ve known Louis forever, I’m not making excuses for him. Please don’t take this that way. We are peers. We are equals. When we were kids, and he asked if he could masturbate in front of me.”
Sometimes she said yes, sometimes not, she told Stern.
“I’m not saying everyone should embrace Louis again,” she said. “I believe he has remorse. I just want him to talk about it on stage. He’s going to have to find his way or not find his way.”
