Parkland Survivor Offers to Talk to Louis CK: ‘Just Try to Keep It in Your Pants’

“Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors, I’m right here if you want to talk,” Aalayah Eastmond responds on Twitter

Parkland school-shooting survivor Aalayah Eastmond responded to Louis C.K.’s leaked stand-up comedy set in which he mocked the teenage students by saying she would agree to speak with C.K. — but only on a condition.

“Hey Louis CK – Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors, I’m right here if you want to talk. Just try and keep it in your pants, OK,” Eastmond responded on Twitter, taking a swipe at the reports that the comedian masturbated in front of several women — accusations which he later admitted were true.

In audio footage circulating the web from a December stand-up comedy performance at the Comedy Cellar, C.K. could be heard joking about today’s youth, criticizing them as “boring” and calling out those who identify as gender non-binary.

“You’re not interesting cause you went to a high school where kids got shot,” C.K. said in the leaked audio.

Eastmond testified in front of Congress about the effects of gun violence in America after she survived the Parkland shooting attack by hiding under the body of one of her slain classmates.

Eastmond is also one of two Parkland students who responded to C.K.’s latest attempt at a comeback, with Cameron Kasky defending C.K.’s right to tell jokes.

“It’s not my job to tell a comedian they’re being offensive. I believe comedy exists to be offensive,” Kasky told TheWrap. “I don’t particularly like that Louis C.K. went after the idea of the movement we started, but comedy is comedy and I don’t think me being offended by it should dictate whether or not it should be allowed to exist.”

Fred Guttenberg, who lost his daughter Jaime in the Parkland shooting, also delivered a message on Twitter in response to C.K.’s routine.

“To anyone who knows Louis CK, please deliver this message for me. My daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting. My son ran from the bullets. My wife and I deal with loss everyday,” he said. “Why don’t you come to my house and try out your new pathetic jokes?”
