Louis CK has attacked victims of the Parkland massacre and non-binary people in his new stand-up show, reports TMZ.

Leaked audio from his latest show that has been shared on Twitter and surfaced on Sunday features CK performing new jokes in front of an audience, who can be heard laughing as he appears to mock survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting of February 2018.

Speaking to the audience, he starts by lamenting his stupidity when he was a youth, taking 'mushrooms' and getting 'high'. He then adds:

You're a child, you should be finger f****** each other and doing jello shots.

He then starts to attack the non-binary community:

They're like royalty, they tell you what to call them. 

'You should address me as they / them, because I identify as gender neutral.'

OK, OK, you should address me as 'there', because I identify as a location. And the location is your mother's c***. 

Then, he starts to mock high school shooting survivors, appearing to talk specifically about the Parkland shooting:

You're young, you should be crazy, you should be unhinged, not in a suit saying, 'I'm here to tell you...' 

F*** you. You're not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. 

Why does that mean I have to listen to you? How does that make you interesting? You didn't get shot. You pushed some fat kid in the way. 

The audio reportedly first appeared on YouTube on a page that has since been removed. It was reportedly recorded during a set on 16 December at the Long Island comedy club Governor's, reports Slate.

People on social media were appalled by the audio, noting how the comedian appears to be pandering to the alt-right.

The comedian has been attempting a comeback since he admitted repeatedly exposing himself and masturbating in front of unwilling women in November 2017.

At the time, he said he was going to 'step back and take a long time to listen'. Less than a year later, he returned to the stage at the Comedy Cellar to perform an unannounced set.
