During an interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Monday, Silverman, 47, opened up about her relationship with C.K., 51, almost a year after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.

“I love him, he’s my brother. I’ve known him since I was 19,” she said. “It’s so hard to talk about. It’s all very black-and-white until it comes to your front door and the bad guy is someone you love. Listen, what he did was wrong. I would not say it was analogous to the serial rapist Bill Cosby, I would not say it’s even close to Harvey Weinstein. … I’m not saying that’s okay. Because once he got famous, even just in the comedy community, that changes everything and it makes it not okay.”
