Louis C.K.’s Half-Hearted Apology Was Just Skewered by ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Lena Headey

By Robin Zlotnick

Cersei Lannister is on a warpath, and it's kind of amazing to watch.

Last week, The New York Times published a report in which five women accused Louis C.K. of sexual harassment. C.K. was only the latest in a string of sexual abusers in Hollywood to be outed. Ever since Harvey Weinstein was taken down by accusations from dozens of women — including Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) — women and men have felt more comfortable than ever coming forward with their experiences of sexual assault and harassment. There's a changing tide, and Headey is a strong voice in a sea of many.

Days after the allegations against C.K. became public, the comedian himself issued a statement in which he acknowledged that "these stories are true." Lena Headey wasn't buying it, however, and she let everyone know exactly what she thought of Louis C.K.'s apology.
