When asked for his reaction, the former Daily Show host replied, “Um… stunned, I think?” He continued, “You give your friends the benefit of the doubt, 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. And you always find yourself back to a moment of, did I miss something? Could I have done more? And in this situation, I think we all could have. So you feel anger at what you did to people.”

Jon Stewart opened up about his reaction to the news last week of five women accusing his friend Louis C . K . of sexual misconduct , with C . K . later saying of the claims in a New York Times exposé, "these stories are true."

STUNNED . Jon Stewart was “ stunned ” when he heard that Louis C . K . had been accused of sexual misconduct and subsequently admitted that the women were telling the truth.

“Look, comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women,” Stewart admitted. “I think it’s gotten better over the years but certainly when we started 30 years ago it was really difficult, and so to do it was an act of bravery in and of itself.”

Later, Stewart recalled the first time he had heard about the misconduct accusations about C.K., which he had been caught off guard with by an audience member while recording a podcast. “My first response was, what?” he said. “And then, joke joke, and as he kept going I was like, ‘Look, I know this is very serious, but I know Louie, he’s always been a gentleman to me’ — which again, speaks to the blindness that I think a man has, which is like, ‘Hey, he’s a good guy, what are you talking about?'”

When asked whether or not he’s talked to his friend, Stewart replied, “No I haven’t. Yet. I haven’t.”
