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

As it stands, the shows in which C.K. played a behind the scenes role only will continue without him, but the comedian's solo work has been mostly excised by FX, HBO, and Netflix.

The Orchard, the distribution company for the comic's controversial movie "I Love You, Daddy", dropped the film one week before its November 17 release. "I'm really thrilled to be able to return to HBO", he says. In light of his admission, FX has cut ties with Louis C.K.

'I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward.

"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". "After years of unsubstantiated rumours about Louis C.K. masturbating in front of associates, women are coming forward to describe what they experienced", a New York Times investigation began.

"You've got to hand it to Louis C.K. Actually, there's no need to hand it to him, but could you at least watch?" One woman said he masturbated while talking to her on the phone, and three said he masturbated in front of them in person.

In addition to being dropped by the networks he's worked with, C.K. has lost his publicist as well. At the sharp end of this: men who have been allowed to flourish with impunity, with no consequences for their behaviour as long as they were rich, powerful or influential enough. His FX shows established him as a uniquely frank and creative force, defining his brand of often uncomfortable comedy while also influencing a wave of other artists who developed projects based on their personal, and sometimes embarrassing, experiences. But in interviews, Adlon said she saw it differently, and thought that her character went along with the kiss. However, now is not the time for him to make television shows. That includes Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, and One Mississippi.

"I have gone through all of these kinds of things, like, in my twenties, in my thirties", she said.

Much of C.K.'s early comedic output aired on HBO including the 2006 comedy series Lucky Louie as well as multiple one-hour comedy specials.

On Friday, Louis released a lengthy statement admitting to the allegations of sexual misconduct.

The comedian added, "I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it".
