Netflix won't make Louis CK stand-up special in wake of sex scandal

The Louis CK Fallout Has Begun

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO is also cutting ties with C.K., and that includes nixing his planned appearance on the November 18 special Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs.

In addition to their work on FX as love interests on Louie, the amusing duo co-starred as spouses on HBO's sitcom Lucky Louie.

In the wake of the scandal, but before Louis CK confirmed the allegations, the distribution company for his new movie, "I Love You, Daddy", announced that the film would not be released next week as planned. I'm here. I have to say something.

Netflix had already cut ties with Louis C.K. earlier Friday, before the actor's admission. I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward.

"I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family", Adlon added.

The cable network said in a statement that Louis C.K. would "no longer be participating in the benefit concert, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" and that it was removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services.

"We are obviously very troubled by the allegations about Louis C.K".

The women alleged that the comedian masturbated in front of them against their will. Pictured: Adlon and C.K. speak onstage during the FX portion of the 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on August 9, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California. "The power I had with these women is that they admired me, and I wielded that power irresponsibly", he said. It also said it was reviewing the matter. It's just painful. It hurts right now, because people should be celebrating him, because he's part of my show. Although it wasn't specifically addressed, since FX is no longer doing business with C.K., consider his Louie TV series cancelled. "Louie", "Better Things" and "Baskets" have become signature shows for the network, propelling its rise to one of cable's elite venues. It's really hard and it's confusing and I hate the whole thing. A representative for 3 Arts Management said in a statement: "We have terminated our relationship with Louis C.K. We are committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for our staff, clients and the community at large". Depending on the severity of the offense, they may emerge years later and try and pick up the pieces of their shattered career.

"[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".
