Marcus Peters: 'I shouldn't have reacted like that' in heated confrontation with fan during Eagles loss Los Angeles Rams cornerback Marcus Peters has repeatedly downplayed the incident where he confronted a fan on Sunday night during L.A.’s 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Los Angeles. Peters can be seen in a video posted to Twitter confronting a fan in the third quarter of the game, and later had to be pulled back to the bench by safety John Johnson III and security guards. He said after the game that he was “just makin’ a little bit of fun.” While he again downplayed the severity of the incident, he did say that he shouldn’t have reacted the way he did when he heard the fan talking to him from the stands.

Janeane Garofalo Defends Louis C.K. in Heated Podcast Interview

Actress Janeane Garofalo participated in the most recent episode of Bust's Poptarts podcast, during which she engaged in a heated discussion about the #MeToo movement and how it pertains to her longtime friend Louis C.K. — who was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women.

Asked by hosts Emily Rems and Callie Watts how the movement has impacted the comedy world, Garofalo said that she believes people should be "OK to question the source."

"It should transcend gender. It’s human rights. 'Cause if you don’t, anyone can be accused of anything at any time," she said. "And if you’re not allowed to question that — I can say right now, 'I’ve got pictures of you molesting a child. Don’t question me!' You know what I mean? Don’t question the questioner! Then it’s a Twilight Zone episode. And I think in any movement, for human rights, you’ve got to transcend gender, and you’ve got to consider who’s making the accusation and why and when, because it matters."

What Does Janeane Garofalo Think She Knows About Louis C . K . That We Don't? I’m not kidding, nor was Janeane Garofalo , who definitely said those words in a recent live interview with BUST magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that has been published as the latest episode of the

Naturally, C.K. came up as he was accused by five women of masturbating in front of them in a New York Times story published in the fall of 2017, written by one of the journalists who wrote the first exposé on sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. C.K. later admitted to the allegations and apologized. Since then, he has attempted a comeback — which has been widely criticized as he was reluctant to discuss his scandal in his frequent stand-up performances in New York that took place during the second half of 2018.

C.K. ignited more controversy in December when, in leaked audio from a stand-up set reportedly performed at Long Island's Governor's Comedy Club, he mocked survivors of the Parkland High School shooting and those who identify as gender nonbinary.

Melissa Joan Hart wrestled with faith, acceptance when son had question about Jewish friend

Melissa Joan Hart wrestled with faith, acceptance when son had question about Jewish friend The "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" star struggled to teach her son about acceptance after her son asked, "If you're Jewish, how do you get to heaven?" Hart got a call from the friend's mother after the boys started discussing religion. Hart said she and the mom had "chats" about these questions of faith that were congenial until their boys reached sixth grade. "The conversations got a little more heated. And some problems came out of that," she said, but did not elaborate. Hart said, overall, the two boys had good conversations. As a parent, however, she stepped in and said sometimes it's best not to push certain things.

Comedian and actor Janeane Garafolo falls into the latter camp, as she's just demanded people leave C . K . alone in a new podcast interview . While appearing on the podcast Poptarts, hosts Emily Rems and Callie Watts asked Garafolo how she felt about the #MeToo movement and its influence on the

Actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo recently defended Louis C . K . amidst criticism for his decision to return to comedy soon after reports of sexual misconduct. During an episode of Bust's podcast "Poptarts," Garofalo was asked about the #MeToo movement and stood by C . K .'s return to.

(via E!)

Despite his behavior, Garofalo wants the world to "leave Louis C.K. alone." She elaborated to Rems and Watts, "And again, there are so many issues we gotta be motivated on. He’s been my friend — and I stand by that — he’s been my friend since 1985, and I think he has suffered," Garofalo said. "And when he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate, if nothing else, care about his daughters."

She added, "If nothing else — if you can find no compassion for him, which I think you should — think about how his daughters, who hear all of this stuff, feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?"

But Rems and Watts took issue with Garofalo's point about C.K.'s daughters. The three women attempted to understand each other in a heated exchange. When Garofalo defended C.K. by telling the hosts that they "don’t understand what it is like to be a public pariah" and to "have people in the street yell things," Rems and Watts reminded Garofalo that C.K. "chose to be a public" and then "chose to take advantage of that."

Janeane Garofalo says to leave Louis C . K . alone: 'He has paid heavily’. Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY Published 8:14 p.m. ET Jan. While being interviewed on the Bust podcast “Poptarts,” things got heated when Garofalo backed C . K ., including his recent appearances at venues like New York City’s

Janeane Garofalo asks for compassion for disgraced comedian Louis C . K . ‘Leave Louis C . K Louis C . K . performs onstage at Comedy Central Night Of Too Many Stars at Beacon Theatre on “Leave Louis C . K . alone,” she said during an interview for Bust Magazine’s “Poptarts” pop culture podcast .

But Garofalo continued to disagree. "I don’t think you know the full story … and nobody talks onstage in their stand-up more than him [about] everything he’s ever done throughout that whole time," she continued. "I don’t want to get caught up in this, because clearly you take a strong position on this, and it doesn’t win me any friends. This is like talking about Israel. But I do believe when you’re a friend with someone, and if you think that they have suffered — I don’t believe in kicking a person when they’re down."

When Garofalo asked the women what their "stake" is in bringing up details from C.K.'s scandal, Rems and Watts bluntly told her that they want to "let people they can't just rip their d--- out in front of people because they can!" They added, "That is the stake. When I [am] in a room and you have a bigger position than me, you don’t just get to wag your d--- at me because you can."

Garofalo then said, "OK, first of all, that’s not what he did," before telling the women that she believes C.K. has been "bullied" relentlessly despite her assertion that he has "paid heavily, heavily, and his family has paid heavily" for the allegations that were made public.

"Oh my God. Do you know how much offensive material goes on at the Comedy Cellar?" Garofalo said, referring to the famed comedy club that has hosted several of C.K.'s comeback shows. "You know what? If you don’t want to listen to him, get up and leave the room. You are acting like Mussolini has walked into the room, and it is not. This is a human being."
