Media companies are reassessing their ties to comic Louis CK

Louis C.K

Following a blistering New York Times exposé in which five women came forward to accuse Louis C.K. of sexual harassment, his longtime collaborator Pamela Adlon has released a statement revealing she is "devastated" after her good friend released an apology saying the stories were true.

Royce, a TV writer and producer who won two Emmys for "Everybody Loves Raymond", was an executive producer of HBO's "Lucky Louie", starring Louis C.K.as the central figure in a working-class family. Separately, the Orchard said it won't release Szekely's new film, "I Love You, Daddy", according to the Times.

"[In the light of allegations] What really creeps me out is the way that C.K.so comfortably inhabits the role of feminist comedian, the guy who's willing to say that men are bear-lions, who comprehends women's fears".

A representative for Louis C.K. said he. would be issuing a written statement "in the coming days". "It's so important", Adlon, 51, said in a statement.

Repercussions for C.K. didn't end with HBO.

Tammy Pescatelli, a stand-up comedian, expressed her support for one of the woman who described her run-in with Louis C.K.: "I was vilified when I agreed/called out, along w/other's that someone more famous & powerful was "parallel thinking" jokes".

Asked about scenes in "Better Things" where men say inappropriate things or behave badly, Adlon said she was familiar with those kinds of experiences. In addition to Louis C.K. 2017, which was his Netflix special, Hilarious, Live at the Comedy Store, Live at the Beacon Theater and Chewed Up are all now on Netflix. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly".

Louis has now confirmed the truth of the reports relating to the five women victimized by his misconduct, which we were unaware of previously.

It now has a 58% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although many of those reviews were from September, when it premiered at the Toronto Film Fest.

CK has also been dropped by his management company 3 Arts and his publicist Lewis Kay.

"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".

When a journalist noted that there seemed to have been an increase in male bad behavior (the reporter used a word that was more colorful), Adlon agreed, as did Louis C.K.
