Comedian Louis CK says allegations of sexual misconduct are true, expresses remorse

Comedian Louis CK says allegations of sexual misconduct are true, expresses remorse

In the late 1990s, a woman-who spoke to the Times on condition of anonymity-alleged that Louis C.K. repeatedly asked to masturbate in front of her while both worked on The Chris Rock Show. According to Corry, he pulled her aside to ask if they could go into her dressing room so she could watch him masturbate. Ryan said it didn't necessarily surprise him that after fixing a drink, Wenner kissed him.

Wenner says in a statement that he did attempt to have a sexual liaison with Ben Ryan, who was 27 at the time of the incident in 2005.

The Orchard released a statement yesterday saying, "In light of the allegations concerning Louis C.K. referenced in today's New York Times, we are cancelling tonight's premiere of I Love You, Daddy". I will now step back and take a long time to listen. A fifth woman anonymously accused the comedian of masturbating in front of her, which she said she allowed at the time because of the comedy world's lewd culture. "I think a big piece of why I said yes was because of the culture".

Although his agent said he would decline to comment, Louis CK previously brushed off rumors of sexual misconduct, telling Vulture in 2016, "I don't care about that".

Another woman, comedienne Abby Schachner, said C.K. was clearly masturbating while she was on the phone inviting him to her show.

Wait, what? Let's rewind for a second: "He said was sorry for shoving her in a bathroom". The actor's appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert - which he was scheduled to tape Friday - was also canceled. I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects now in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You, Daddy.

"It's really a male problem, not being able to control your constant sexual impulse", he joked at one performance. When confronted with the similarities by the Times earlier this year, he shrugged the accusations off as "rumors" and said, "It's amusing, I didn't think of that" about the masturbation scene.

"We seem to be entering dark times - allegations are being printed as facts and lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence".

Kirkman wrote on Twitter, "I understand how Tig feels".

Louis C.K.'s compulsive need to turn his own alleged misbehavior into fodder for his wildly successful career is one, very disturbing thing. Schachner said that he messaged her on Facebook six years later to apologize, but the incident by then had "discouraged her from pursuing comedy". She told the Times that she didn't appreciate how that implied she had done something wrong.

HBO has also cut ties with C.K. following the Times story. "He knew it was going to make him look like a good guy, supporting a woman", she said of what she felt were his motivations for working on One Mississippi and releasing her comedy album.
