HBO severs ties with comedian Louis CK due to sexual misconduct

Louis C.K. in Louie

The company believes Louis' job right now isn't to make TV shows, but it is to address the scandal and begin the healing process which he already started by apologizing to the women in question.

"I was walking to set to shoot my scene and he approached me and got really close to my face and said, 'Can I ask you something?' And I said yes".

As reported by Deadline, FX has officially cut ties with the comedian following reports (and C.K.'s subsequent admission) that he had sexually harassed several women, with allegations dating back to 2002.

While the comedian did not explicitly apologise, he said in his statement: "I have been remorseful of my actions".

After rejecting C.K.'s request to masturbate in front of her, Corry, who was a performer and producer of a then-television pilot with C.K., chose to continue working on the show, feeling guilty if she were to cancel the overall production.

And it's not just collaborators who are backing away from C.K. Stars in the comedy world and Hollywood at large quickly reacted to the news on social media, voicing their disgust and concern.

"People made jokes about it all the time", she said.

"If I could do anything differently, it would be that day, I would have shut down production", she said. "'Cause I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful". It's a predicament for them. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with.

I Love You, Daddy, the film directed and co-written by C.K., was dropped by its distributors ahead of release. "The power I had over these women is that they admired me". And I wielded that power irresponsibly. "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." .

"Louis's unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand-up special, as had been planned".

HBO was the first to act, dropping him from its upcoming Night of Too Many Stars charity event.

"No one, not even Louis C.K. fans, could watch the film the same way now", Halberstadt said.
