Louis C.K.’s album, "Sincerely Louis C.K.," was named best comedy album at Sunday’s 2022 Grammy Awards in Las Vegas — five years after he admitted to s*xual misconduct.
The controversial comedian was nominated against Nate Bargatze ("The Greatest Average American"), Lewis Black ("Thanks for Risking Your Life"), Lavell Crawford ("The Comedy Vaccine"), Chelsea Handler ("Evolution") and Kevin Hart ("Zero F---s Given").
The 54-year-old didn’t attend the ceremony and his win wasn’t televised during the CBS broadcast. It was C.K.’s third Grammy win in the category and the first since he admitted to s*xual misconduct in 2017.
Viewers immediately took to Twitter and slammed the recording academy while launching a fiery debate about Will Smith and his behavior at the 2022 Oscars on March 27
"So much for ‘cancel culture,’" one viewer tweeted. "Apparently you can do whatever you want if you’re famous."
"I don’t want to hear anything else about Will Smith now that Louis C.K. not only was nominated but just won an award #GRAMMYs," one critic chimed.
"Louis CK just won a whole ass Grammy while y’all are either calling for Will Smith’s head or crying about cancel culture," another user added. "There are no consequences for white cishet men."
"Embarrassing," one viewer noted.
