"You give your friends the benefit of the doubt: I tried to think about it in terms of, I've had friends who have had compulsions and have done things - gambling or drinking or drugs - and we've lost some of them", Stewart said Tuesday. "In this situation, I think we all could have". "And then joke joke, and as he kept going I was like, 'Look, I know this is very serious, but I was like, 'I know Louis, he's always been a gentleman to me, ' which, again, speaks to the blindness that a man has, which is like, 'Hey, he's a good guy, what are you talking about?'" Stewart said. "Comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women".

Stewart claimed he first heard about allegations of harassment against Louis C.K. during a taping of David Axelrod's podcast The Axe Files in May of 2016.

Former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart appeared on "Today" Tuesday morning, mostly to discuss the upcoming "Night of Too Many Stars" special on HBO, but at the end he was asked to address the admitted sexual misconduct by his longtime friend Louis C.K. Stewart said he was "stunned" by all of this and wondered if perhaps he and others could have done more to prevent or stop this (yeah, probably!).

"So the internet said Louis harassed women", Stewart replied.

"I didn't see the tweets", he went on.

Four women accused the comedian of masturbating in front of them and a fifth said he asked if he could but she refused. Honestly, I'm not that connected to that world. "I can't answer. All I can tell you is I've worked with Louis for 30 years, and he's a wonderful man and person and I've never heard anything about this". We're used to being in charge, and I think if you talk to women they're in a very hard position. Stewart's response to the question was ... not ideal.

"My first response was what?"

In the report, multiple women alleged sexual misconduct against the comedian, allegations that Louis C.K. later confirmed were true.

"No, I haven't", he replied. And Stewart, who is hosting Night of Too Many Stars, was asked for his reaction to C.K. during an interview on Today promoting the benefit. It features John Oliver, Olivia Munn, Robert DeNiro, Ben Stiller, Stephen Colbert and more.
