Louis CK Admits Sexual Misconduct, Dropped By HBO, FX, Netflix, And More

The Louis CK Fallout Has Begun

The 50-year-old comedian was accused of exposing himself and masturbating in front of multiple women in a New York Times report published last week, and Rebecca Corry - who claims Louis asked if he could perform the act in front of her whilst filming a television pilot in 2005 - now insists "the comedy world" knew about the alleged actions at the time, and would "joke" about it. FX has cut ties with Louis CK in the wake of the allegations.

Today, FX Networks and FX Productions are ending our association with Louis C.K. We are cancelling the overall deal between FX Productions and his production company, Pig Newton.

Netflix, meanwhile, announced it would no longer produce a stand-up special it had agreed to make with C.K. Moving forward, he also will not be involved in the FX comedies he co-created: Pamela Adlon's Better Things and Zach Galifianakis' Baskets, as well as FX Productions' One Mississippi and The Cops. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.

"At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d - k without asking first", he said.

I don't know exactly when I first heard the rumors about Louis C.K., but this is because of how frequently I've heard those rumors repeated - not with the hushed tones and gripped elbow of a anxious girlfriend's warning, the way such information is usually shared, but in jokes, told to comedians by comedians. People made jokes about it all the time, ' the comedian and actress said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions makes a statement regarding national security in NY , U.S., November 2, 2017. The letter comes on the eve of Sessions' own testimony to the judiciary committee.

FX's statement asserts the network was unaware of C.K.'s behavior while he worked there. There are a couple noteworthy components to today's story: One, the scandal is taking place amidst a widespread sexual misconduct reckoning where a mogul like C.K.is not even the biggest story in the news; two, he's not denying it. "Because I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful". It's a predicament for them.

"My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K. And I wielded that power irresponsibly".

On Thursday afternoon, the network announced that C.K. will no longer appear on the Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs benefit show on November 18th.

The comedian's upcoming movie, I Love You, Daddy, is also in peril as a result of the allegations. I used to love Louie, but I don't think I will watch it again, because I don't think I could stand getting that close to the actions that informed its creation.
