Netflix Cancels Upcoming Louis CK Stand-Up Special

Netflix Cancels Upcoming Louis CK Stand-Up Special

According to almost 20 sources, women had not only been subject to abuse from C.K. himself but also threatened and blacklisted from comedy jobs by his influential manager, Dave Becky.

A day after five women spoke out about sexual misconduct they encountered at the hands of the comic, and hours after Louis C.K. released a statement confirming their "stories are true," FX has announced that it is ending its association with the writer/director/actor/producer.

Corry was so shocked she reported the incident to Courtney Cox and David Arquette, who were producing the show.

"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.

Those opportunities are few and far between and I most certainly didn't want to be the person responsible for shutting down a production or even being part of the narrative. "I would have confronted it, and I would have dealt with it then, because I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, that is not helpful". "Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with".

Father of two Louis C.K. was dumped by Netflix, his publicist, the television networks FX and HBO, and his upcoming movie, which had showcased a relationship between an aging filmmaker and a teenage girl, was scrapped.

Pamela Adlon recently released a statement after her good friend and partner, Louis C.K., admitted to sexually assaulting multiple women in the past. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment have also cut ties with CK, announcing the comedian has been dropped from the starring role of The Secret Life of Pets 2, which is set for a June 7, 2019 release. "He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him - "Better Things, ' 'Baskets, ' 'One Mississippi" and "The Cops'".

Corry said that C.K.'s power in the comedy world, plus the allegiance fellow comedians have to each other make it an uncomfortable place to speak out.

In the wake of the scandal, the distributor of Louis C.K.'s "I Love You, Daddy" was canceled, as was a second Netflix stand-up special.
