HBO Pulls Past Louis CK Projects From On Demand

HBO Pulls Past Louis CK Projects From On Demand

'At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true'.

FX, the TV network that carries the comedian's show "Louie" and has worked with the comedian on four other shows over eight years, said it's reviewing the matter.

A representative for Louis C.K. said he. would be issuing a written statement "in the coming days".

Pamela Adlon - the writer/actress who co-created Better Things with Louis C.K. for FX - says she is "devastated" to learn how her "friend and partner" behaved with so many women.

Louis C.K. victor Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series poses in the press room during the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on September 23, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

Comedian Rebecca Corry recalled a similar encounter in 2005, where she said C.K. had asked if she'd come to his hotel room to watch him masturbate while the two were filming a television pilot.

The C.K. allegations follow weeks of nonstop news in Hollywood exposing several high-profile men on a variety of charges, including sexual harassment, rape, and assault, which began with the Times investigation of Harvey Weinstein.

In a New York Times exposé, they claimed that the "Louie" star either masturbated in front of them or sought their permission to do so.

"I have gone through all of these kinds of things, like, in my twenties, in my thirties", she said.

Following C.K.'s statement, the comedian's longtime network partner FX is cutting all ties effective immediately.

Louis has now confirmed the truth of the reports relating to the five women victimized by his misconduct, which we were unaware of previously. "All I know is that, I know about him as being my partner on a show that is the opposite of any of this kind of frightful, negative things".

"FX Networks and FX Productions remain committed to doing everything we can to ensure that all people work in an environment that is safe, respectful and fair, and we will continue our review of all of these productions to ensure that was and is the case". Both Adlon and C.K. are executive producers of the show, with the stand-up comedian directing it.

"Louis C.K. will no longer be participating in the "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs", which will be presented live on HBO on November 18".
