Roseanne Barr is never one to mince words, and her latest social media posts calling a prominent comedian out for alleged sexual assault are a prime example.
Barr was an outspoken critic of Bill Cosby when sexual assault charges began being levied against him by multiple women and now she has her sights set on Emmy nominated comic Louis C.K.
I have 0 idea if Louie #CK is a sexual offender or not-but there R MULTIPLE accusations in Hollywood’s working woman circles. He shld answer

Did Jen Kirkman out Louis CK’s gross behavior on her podcast last month? https://t.co/zsJLMJHnyG

Her reference was to a podcast by comedian Jen Kirkman who appeared to have made a reference to C.K. on a since-deleted podcast.
“And this guy didn’t rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard,” Kirkman said. “Because I knew if I did, I’d be getting more of the same weird treatment I’d been getting from him. And it was really f*cked up, and this person was married.”
Until Roseanne, who recently announced she is writing herself in for president, no one had directly accused C.K. by name.
But it’s not the first time a thinly veiled accusation was made against him.
In 2012, Gawker ran a “blind item” describing sexual misconduct by a male comedian. who many assumed to be C.K., against two female colleagues.
At the Aspen Comedy Festival a few years ago, he invited a female comedy duo back to his hotel room. The two ladies gladly joined him, and offered him some weed. He turned it down, but asked if it would be OK if he took his d**k out.
Thinking he was joking (that’s exactly the kind of thing this guy would say), the women gave a facetious thumbs up. He wasn’t joking. When he actually started j***ing off in front of them, the ladies decided that wasn’t their bag and made for the exit. But the comedian stood in front of the door, blocking their way with his body, until he was done.
And in an interview with New York Magazine the comedian dismissed the accusations against him.
“I don’t care about that. That’s nothing to me. That’s not real,” he said.
