Comedians are weighing in on the matter through Twitter.

Many are firmly Team Too Soon.

For his supporting of C.K. being welcomed back into the very environment where his abuse was long an open secret, Black got a lot of pushback from fans, Pajibans, and fellow-comedian Rhea Butcher.

Let’s end with a thoughtful thread from LA-based stand-up comedian, Ian Karmel.
