Trevor Noah responded on Thursday night to the bombshell New York Times report detailing alleged sexual misconduct by comedian Louis C.K. with a clever idea:

"All women in Hollywood should win double Oscars for acting like all the men [in Hollywood] were cool, all along, every single one of them."

"At this point, we're going to need a new Oscar category this year: 'Best actor whose movies we can't watch anymore,'" the "Daily Show" host added.

Discussions about sexual misconduct ― including rape, assault and harassment ― continue to upend Hollywood as women and men within the industry come forward with claims of abuse.

"It's getting to the point whenever I see a beloved celebrity's name trending on Twitter I'm like, 'Oh, please tell me they're dead. Please tell me they're dead... Ah, damn it!'" Noah added.
