The wave of celebrity sexual misconduct allegations is expected to continue this weekend, when Louis C.K. is set to return to film and television after nearly a decade away. He’s set to make his first appearance on TV in more than a decade at the London Stand-Up Comedy Festival. When asked about his ethics after allegations of sexual misconduct against him, C.K. said he is “terrified of offending anyone.” The spotlight on C.K. will shine bright over the weekend, when images of him and other celebrities working will be readily available online. But a group is trying to protect the images used in the videos and photos.

Over 300 individuals who identify as Sexually Explicit Videos Non-Consensual users have signed a petition to Over 300 individuals who identify as Sexually Explicit Videos Non-Consensual users have signed a petition to iTunes: “ Please DO NOT allow us to purchase those stolen or misused videos or images. “ Currently there are over 700,000 $0.99 video rentals. “ You can find it here. “ It received 16,600 signatures — two of them from politicians.

The creators of the petition have received support from politicians like Senator Tammy Baldwin, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, and President Donald Trump, who tweeted about the development Thursday evening: “Thank you so much for your kind words regarding the harmful and inhumane conduct of pervert sex offenders. You are right. These vicious and evil criminals will have no place to hide.” The petition has received 16,600 signatures — two of them from politicians.

The creator of the petition, a self-identified trans man whose name has been hidden to protect him from harassment, also received support from some female actors, including Lupita Nyong’o and Elizabeth Banks. Another said the creators were going to go ahead with the removal of footage anyway. “I make movies, but for some reason I don’t have to keep receipts on how I make money,” the creator wrote.
