Louis CK Explains Why He Quit the Radio & TV Correspondents’ Dinner

“I wasn’t going to stand there and defend something I didn’t really feel like doing anyway. I wasn’t that excited about it, I didn’t want to cause them problems, I didn’t think it was what they invited when they hired me. And I didn’t think about it much. It was like one morning I woke up, I heard there was static. I’m in production (on the TV show), so I have no reason to be in conflict with anybody right now.”
