Louis C.K. reportedly called Roseanne after her firing at ABC

Norm Macdonald Heroically Comes To The Defense Of Louis C.K., Roseanne Barr & Chris Hardwick

Now The New York Times reports that The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon does not want tonight's show to star Norm Macdonald, and his appearance has been canceled. "That's my guess. I know a couple of people this has happened to". The victims didn't have to go through that.

The victims might not have had their show cancelled, sure, however, his co-star Roseanne's victim was met with racist slurs while Louis' were met with sexual misconduct.

In 2017, C.K. admitted to sexual misconduct after five women came forward accusing him.

He now has a show coming out on Netflix soon called Norm MacDonald Has A Show, and it premiers later in September.

'And then you're like, 'What?' Like, that Chris Hardwick guy I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there, ' he continued.

His comments drew swift criticism online.

The comedian said he wishes he didn't have to do interviews.

Among other comments, Macdonald also mentioned Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K., saying, "There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day".

Russell Westbrook underwent arthroscopic surgery
Westbrook will be re-evaluated in four weeks, with the Thunder opening the season October 16 against the Golden State Warriors . A re-evaluation day does not mean Westbrook will return on that date, and the Thunder has not given a timetable for his return.

In his apology tweet, Macdonald said Barr and Louis C.K.

Unfortunately, Macdonald may not have helped his case by also telling Stern that he'd "have to have Down syndrome to not feel sorry" for the victims of harassment and adding, "Down syndrome, that's my new word".

"One Twitter user said: "'Norm McDonald Has A Show.' After saying that the victims didn't feel as bad or lose everything like CK did, the title should be changed to 'Norm McDonald Doesn't Have A Show For Much Longer'.

A spokesperson for the show said the decision to cancel was made "out of sensitivity to our audience".

Netflix did not immediately return a request for comment.

MACDONALD:The model used to be: admit wrongdoing, show complete contrition and then we give you a second chance.

"She was just so broken and crying constantly", Macdonald said. Now it's admit wrongdoing and you're finished. "That's not healthy - that there is no forgiveness".

"I wasn't there, but everything I heard about it was that he did very well", he said. Macdonald believes that the movement got a bit out of control when any woman could make a claim and then ruin someone's career.
