Louis CK Film, 'I Love You, Daddy,' Shelved After Sexual Misconduct Accusations

Louis CK Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Five Women

Comedians Dana Min Goodman, Abby Schachner, Julia Wolov, Rebecca Corry, and a fifth woman who was not identified said that C.K. either masturbated in front of them, asked to masturbate in front of them, or masturbated during a phone conversation. It spawns a kind of crisis for C.K.'s character, who has his own issues with how he treats women.

"There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for", he wrote". And I have to reconcile it with who I am. "Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with".

I've brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.

"I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want", he said.

Distributor The Orchard canceled the release of "I Love You, Daddy" in light of the allegations published Thursday afternoon - but screeners had already gone out for the awards season, making for some particularly ill-timed arrivals. When rebuffed, Corry said, "his face got red and he told me he had issues".

The cancellation ends a two-special deal signed in February. Netflix has not commented on the fate of the second special.

Police in Los Angeles said Thursday they are investigating a sexual assault report filed against former "Gossip Girl" star Westwick.

Two of the film's stars have also spoken out about the claims. Goddard, he said, "swore to his remorse". 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.

The celebrated standup, writer and producer may be the most beloved celebrity ensnared in the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that began last month with Harvey Weinstein.

"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".

The New York Times story has since come out, with 5 women accusing the comedian of sexual misconduct.

Another publicist told The Times the comedian would not respond to their reporting.

The crisis has also roiled the world of journalism, with editors at The New Republic and NPR losing their jobs. But Wenner denied offering a writing contract for sex and said that another one of his magazines, Men's Journal, published a piece he had earlier assigned Ryan.

Jenny McCarthy says actor Steven Seagal sexually harassed her during a 1995 audition.

McCarthy recounted her encounter with Seagal during a tryout for "Under Siege 2" on her Sirius XM radio show Thursday, a day after actress Portia de Rossi accused Seagal of unzipping his trousers during an audition.

"

"'I used to misread people back then.'"

"When he phoned her", according to the Times, "he said was sorry for shoving her in a bathroom". She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated.

Currently, it has not been decided what the fate of I Love You, Daddy is.

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she is among the young women abused by a former USA Gymnastics team doctor. The premium cable network is dropping the Louie star from their upcoming comedy special, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs and is also pulling C.K.'s previous stand-up specials and series from its on-demand services.
