Back in 2010, Louis C.K. had nine too many Rum and Cokes on a flight and fired off a string of bawdy tweets directed at Sarah Palin, including, “I want to rub my father’s cock all over Sarah Palin’s fat tits,” and, “Kudos to your dirty hole, you f*cking jackoff c*nt-face jazzy wondergirl.” There was also some stuff about Jews (he’s a fan!). It made no sense and all the sense, but C.K. told GQ in 2011 that he regretted the drunk-tweeting, telling the magazine, “God, what a mess. I really shouldn’t have done that… I’m not a political comedian. That’s just not what I do.”
C.K.’s feelings for Palin came up again on The Howard Stern Show today. He told Stern that at SNL 40, Palin approached and complimented him. “Something came over me emotionally,” C.K. admitted, “And I said, ‘Well, I owe you an apology.’ I’ve never in a million years apologized for anything I’ve said. F*ck anyone else who is offended. I don’t give a sh*t.”
C.K. said one of Palin’s handlers thanked him for the apology. When C.K. told Palin he said some bad things about her, she joked, “Well, you’re a vile person,” making the comedian laugh. She went on to invite C.K. to go fishing with her if he were ever in Alaska. (Via)
Would he go? “In a heartbeat,” though he’ll probably refrain from the alcohol on the flight this time.
