Louis CK presented the Oscar for Best Documentary Short at the 2016 Academy Awards in his characteristic curmudgeonly fashion.

CK joked that the trophy for that particular category would be "going home in a Honda Civic" to a "small apartment," while the others would find home in million-dollar mansions.


LCK fans ate it up.

A small subset of Twitter, however, commented on what they found to be CK's hypocrisy, citing his incredible wealth -- along with his wildly rumored/alleged "propensity for whipping it out and jerking off in front of women at inappropriate times (i.e. dinner table, bar, etc.)":
