Five women accused Louis CK of inappropriate behavior

Five women accused Louis CK of inappropriate behavior

In a story published Thursday, the Times identified four women by name, and a fifth who was anonymous, who recounted similar stories of C.K. crossing the line of sexual misconduct in their encounters with them dating back more than a decade.

The incidents range from C.K. asking comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov if he could take off his trousers that they laughed off as a joke, but as Goodman said, "he proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", to C.K. masturbating while speaking to Abby Schachner on the phone. Suddenly, he asked if he could take his penis out. The comedian's routine often included masturbation jokes, and in 2007, he told a radio show a story about exposing his genitals to an old man in public when he was younger, adding, "I don't know why". "He proceeded to take all of his clothes off and get completely naked, and started masturbating".

The allegations mirror rumors about C.K. that ricocheted around the comedy and entertainment world throughout his wildly successful career. "I'm not going to answer that stuff, because they're rumors".

I Love You, Daddy was set to premiere in New York on Thursday (November 9) but was called off just hours before after reports emerged of a New York Times article detailing allegations levelled at the comedian.

Furthermore, according to the THR report, Louis' scheduled appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has also been cancelled, with the comedian being replaced by Shameless actor William H. Macy.

"Due to unexpected circumstances, tonight's event for "I Love You, Daddy" has been cancelled", the distribution company said in an email.

MS comedian Tig Notaro, whose first comedy album was released by Louis C.K., said she heard of his reputation from other women and suggested it's not exactly a secret in the comedy world. At the time, C.K. defended the film's script, telling THR, "we're depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these attractive apartments and offices saying whatever they want".

The film has generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The black-and-white movie is about a TV writer-producer whose 17-year-old daughter falls in love with a 68-year-old filmmaker. Louis C.K. was a writer and producer for the show at the time.

Radar has previously reported C.K.'s history of sexual misconduct. After their alleged encounters, two of the women say, C.K. privately apologized for his behavior. Roseanne Barr once claimed he is known to force women he works with to watch him masturbate, though she later acknowledged she had no firsthand knowledge.
