Bill Burr showed his support for Louis C.K. after the comedian admitted to masturbating in front of women and over the phone.
Burr discussed the scandal during his podcast “Monday Morning” and shared that he felt bad for the women — but also for his pal.
“I love Louis C.K. and that was really, obviously just a f–king hard thing to see happen to somebody and he was definitely 100% wrong,” Burr said Monday. “He was 100 percent wrong, he did own up to it. And I think he will definitely be back, I will say that.”
“I also knew a couple of the women he did this s–t to and I just feel bad for everyday. It’s just f–king terrible, I don’t know… I don’t know what else you say about it,” he continued.

Burr seemed at a loss, repeating “I don’t know” while feeling obligated to address the situation.
“I feel like I’m in a divorce where you know both the mom and the dad and you’ve got a pick a f–king side here. I don’t know,” he said.
He also wasn’t fond of the way it turned into a “witch-hunt” with everyone connected to C.K. in some way.
“It was like six degrees of Louie’s d–k,” Burr said.
Louis C.K. was accused of masturbating in front of — or on the phone with — five different women during a bombshell piece published by the New York Times on Thursday.
The “Louie” star later admitted to the accusations and issued an apology.

“These stories are true,” the 50-year-old said in a statement. “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d–k without asking first.”
“There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for,” he continued. “And I had to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.”
C.K. has had countless projects scrapped since the accusations came out, including five things in the works at FX, a Netflix special and his upcoming film, “I Love You, Daddy.”
