The comedian wore a red T-shirt with the magazine's name written on it in black ink while performing on stage at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The words appeared to be handwritten, although it was unclear whether Louis C.K. himself made the shirt.

MTV previously reported about the shirt.

The Louie star is not the only public figure to have paid tribute to the 12 people who were murdered by masked gunmen Wednesday at the magazine's Paris offices. 

Writer Salman Rushdie penned an essay in response to the attack, saying, "Religion, a medieval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms."

Meanwhile, cartoonists and satirists around the world united in condemning the violence.
