Louis CK Collaborator Pamela Adlon Comments On Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Share

FX is ending its long relationship with Louis C.K. amid reports of sexual misconduct against the comedian.

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. The first came out earlier this year.

The Times on Thursday quoted several women who described Louis C.K. masturbating in their presence without their consent.

Netflix announced that it was abandoning a second stand-up special featuring the star in the wake of what it called his "unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues".

This story originally appeared on The Hollywood Reporter. Before taking a shot with FX, C.K. had tried with "Lucky Louie" at HBO and failed.

In the same way, when episodes of C.K's show "Louie" dealt with sexual assault, it was easy to assume they were informed by empathy.

FX isn't the only platform to back away from C.K.in light of the allegations.

"In addition, HBO is removing Louis CK's past projects from its On Demand services".

She told her superiors about her experience with the comedian, which she said led to a "very spirited conversation" about "what to do and liability issues and ethical issues". Distribution company the Orchard canceled its premiere ahead of the Times piece, and announced that it is "giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation".

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". Charlie Day was "appalled" to read the allegations, he said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times. We all hope that the people whose work we admire are decent and kind, and it's a lot more convenient for us when that's true. I won't defend him.

"I want to address the stories told to The New York Times by five women named Abby, Rebecca, Dana, Julia who felt able to name themselves and one who did not", he wrote.

Jenni Konner, the former Girls show-runner, had this to say: "Your move, FX".
