Alix Bailey’s Ex-Husband Controversial Works

Louis C.K.’s television show “Louie,” which he writes, directs, edits and acts are heavily based on the real life. Louis talks so openly, honestly, and realistically about parenting that he often forgets his relationship with the two actresses who play his daughters. He feels so genuine that he often forget that those aren’t his real daughters. “Louie” is obviously not a documentary, but it has a very autobiographical feel.

One of the controversies related to the show is the African American woman, who depicts Alix and the white children. This controversy lit up the public, and soon Louis had to come forward and talk about race differences between his real ex-wife and the wife from the show.

In an interview, Louis explained that he wanted a distinct line between the show and his real life. Also, he stated that Susan Kelechi Watson, who plays the Afro-American woman was the best actresses that auditioned for the part. On the other hand, media started to follow Alix in order to get a photo with her to prove the big difference between the two of them.

C.K. began his own YouTube channel, featuring sketches, short films he made independently in the earlier years of his career and rejected HBO segments.

In 2007, he wrote a controversial sketch presenting the Catholic Church as existing “solely for the purpose of boy rape” that attracted the ire of several Christian media organizations. Later, the same groups attacked Louie for being “barbaric”.
