Netflix, FX & HBO drop shows with Louis CK

Not Released

The severed ties came in the wake of a damning New York Times article that featured five women claiming C.K. had masturbated in front of them.

However, Corry refused, as she simply wanted to "pretend like it never happened" - something she now regrets.

Following sexual misconduct claims made about Louis C.K., a range of companies working with the comedian including Netflix, FX and HBO have dropped future projects with him.

"Discussing her interview with Corry with GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos after the segment aired on Monday (13Nov17), she explained, "(Corry) said at the time, he said, 'Oh, I'm sorry that I forced you into a closet, ' and she said, 'Well, that's not even what happened, ' so then she was thinking he must do this with a lot of different people, because this isn't even this incident that happened".

"It was just actually sort of common knowledge in the comedy world".

She says she didn't speak up at the time - though producers Courteney Cox and David Arquette asked if she felt comfortable continuing with the show - because she didn't want the burden of being the one who put an end to production. "Those opportunities were few and far between".

"If I could do anything differently, it would be that day, I would have shut down production", she said. "If I had, I would have taken this event as seriously as it deserved to be, and I would have confronted Louis, which would have been the right thing to do", he said in a statement to Deadline.

"At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d- without asking first, which is also true", he said. I would say, 'This story about you forcing these women to watch you jerk off, what is that, is that true?' He goes, 'No, that's not true. "But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d-k isn't a question". "And I wielded that power irresponsibly".

Distributor The Orchard has announced it will not release the film as planned on November 17, and actress Chloë Grace Moretz, who plays C.K.'s daughter in the film, released a statement saying she decided two weeks ago to pull out of promoting the project "after becoming aware of potential allegations against Louis C.K".

"And I would ask (C.K.) about it".

Louis C.K.'s former manager apologized Monday for the way in which he handled sexual harassment accusations against the comedian years ago. "We are cancelling the overall deal between FX Productions and his production company, Pig Newton".
