The Louie star revealed today on The Howard Stern Show that he recently apologized to Sarah Palin in person for some profane tweets he wrote about her after knocking a few back on a flight he took in 2010—and he admits that was totally out of character for him!
The apology, that is, not the rough tweets.
"Something came over me emotionally, and I said, 'Well, I owe you an apology,'" C.K. recalled running into the politician turned author and TV pundit at the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special taping. "I've never in a million years apologized for anything I've said."
And apparently this was a one-time thing.
"F--k anyone else who is offended. I don't give a s--t," he added.
So what did Palin have to say to the guy who once called her a ''f--king jackoff c--tface jazzy wondergirl"?
C.K. claimed that, once reminded/informed that he had once said nasty things about her, she jokingly fired back, "'Well, you're a vile person.'"
Or she wasn't joking, but either way!
Talking about the tweets two years after the fact, C.K. acknowledged on Today in 2012, "It's caused me some problems that I wrote s--t about her."
"But I also...why not, man? I mean, what is she? She's just a person. I don't think she's some sacred person."
Moreover, he added, "It still makes me laugh a little bit, the stuff that I wrote, when I think about it. I thought it was well-written."
Do not fear the fate of his masterpiece: Like so many other written barbs that found their way online, his rant has been fossilized (aka screengrabbed) for posterity.
