Louis CK's New Movie Probably Won't See the Light of Day

Louis CK's New Movie Probably Won't See the Light of Day

After declining his invitation to sit next to him on a couch, McCarthy, who said she purposefully wore a loose-fitting garment to the audition so the focus would be on her acting instead of her body, said Seagal asked her to remove her clothes. She says he asked her over and over if he could masturbate in front of her, and eventually she agreed. She declined "and he told me he had issues".

The conclusion here is pretty obvious: Louis C.K. shoved someone into a bathroom, even if he couldn't remember exactly whom he shoved.

Alongside the accounts of three other women, these accusations paint a picture of a powerful man who was fully aware that he was a compulsive sexual harasser, routinely apologized for it, and yet failed to curb his behavior. She says she came forward to back up the claims of two other women who accused Piven of sexual misconduct.

9, Louis C.K. was met with sexual harassment allegations from five different women.

"It's really a male problem, not being able to control your constant sexual impulse", he joked at one performance.

The film's distribution company, The Orchard, released a statement saying "The Orchard will not be moving forward with the release of "I Love You, Daddy". The film's plot concerns a successful TV writer-producer (C.K.) whose 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) begins dating a significantly older film director (John Malkovich). A character in the movie also reportedly simulates masturbation in front of other people. The premium cable network is dropping the Louie star from their upcoming comedy special, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs and is also pulling C.K.'s previous stand-up specials and series from its on-demand services. This is the behavior of a man who is practically begging to be called out for his misdeeds ― and yet, as the Times makes clear, he's been protected for years. The women "feared career repercussions", the Times reported.

"The allegations made by several women in The New York Times about Louis C.K.'s behaviour are disturbing", a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. Tiffany Bacon Scourby tells People magazine Piven held her down while he performed a sex act at a hotel 14 years ago.

Actresses and comedians Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Abby Schachner, Rebecca Corry and a fifth woman who remained anonymous shared their stories in the New York Times' Weinstein-style exposé.

In response, CK said: "I like it. I can't help that I want to do things that hurt you". He earned praise as a feminist of sorts for his support of women writers Tig Notaro and Pamela Adlon.

In the hours after the story was published Thursday afternoon, his new film "I Love You Daddy" was scrapped (its Thursday premiere was canceled ahead of the story breaking), HBO and FX distanced themselves from the comic and Netflix announced it would take down all of his specials. If his own words are any evidence, the Times report is likely just the beginning.
