FX Cuts Ties With Louis CK Over Sexual Misconduct

FX Cuts Ties With Louis CK Over Sexual Misconduct

Now Corry has recalled her experience in a candid interview for USA breakfast show Good Morning America, revealing the funnyman had been so casual about wanting to expose himself to her while they were shooting a TV pilot in 2005.

Asked why it remained an open secret, Corry said the comedy world is one in which there is a lot of allegiance and a lot of fear, which doesn't make it a comfortable place to speak out.

"There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for", he said.

"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". Those opportunities are few and far between. "Because I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful".

A day after a New York Times exposé was published, in which five women accused C.K. of sexual misconduct, C.K. said that the allegations were true.

The comedian's publicist, Lewis Kay, announced last Friday that he no longer represents the comedian. According to almost 20 sources, women had not only been subject to abuse from C.K. himself but also threatened and blacklisted from comedy jobs by his influential manager, Dave Becky. A co-worker corroborated her story to the newspaper.

This story originally appeared on The Hollywood Reporter. It's a predicament for them. "Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with". "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". "This sort of subtle aggrandisement seems to me to be all over Louie, this way the show burnishes Louis C.K., often at the expense of Louie, as a guy who gets the complexities of male and female experience". The dark comedy, which the comedian wrote and directed, is full of controversial dialogue and jokes about child rape and sexual harassment.

Pamela Adlon recently released a statement after her good friend and partner, Louis C.K., admitted to sexually assaulting multiple women in the past.

FX, which has produced five shows with the star, announced that it was cutting all ties with the comedian and his production company. "He will no longer serve as an executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him - Better Things, Baskets, One Mississippi and The Cops." .

The Night of Too Many Stars special was set to air live on November 18.
