Louis CK loses FX, Netflix gigs after remorseful acknowledgment of sexual misconduct

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

The Louis CK Fallout Has Begun

Ahead of the article's publication, C.K.'s frequent collaborator Pamela Adlon reluctantly commented on the rumors about C.K.in an interview with KCRW's The Business conducted by The Hollywood Reporter editor-at-large Kim Masters, who also hosts the radio show.

In addition to their work on FX as love interests on Louie, the amusing duo co-starred as spouses on HBO's sitcom Lucky Louie. "I'm really thrilled to be able to return to HBO", he says.

I've been a stand-up comedian since 2011, and since at least 2012, when Gawker published a "blind item" strongly insinuating that Louis C.K. masturbated in front of nonconsenting women, comedians have joked about it with each other. Now is the time for him to honestly address the women who have come forth to speak about their painful experiences, a process which he began today with his public statement.

"I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family", Adlon added. In addition, HBO is removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. "For many of C.K.'s fans, he's been more than a creative figure... he's been a role model too - his brand was telling the stories you weren't supposed to tell". 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.

When FX President John Landgraf was looking for a show featuring a female lead, C.K. suggested Adlon, and the pair co-created "Better Things", in which Adlon mined her chaotic life as a single mother of three girls for comedy. But in interviews, Adlon said she saw it differently, and thought that her character went along with the kiss.

"It hurts to read about things that people are saying about him", Adlon said.

FX today made their stance clear in regards to comedian Louis CK - they don't want him around any of their shows. Since they come from FXP, the same holds true for Amazon's One Missippi, and the upcoming TBS animated comedy, The Cops. It's really hard and it's confusing and I hate the whole thing.

Louis C.K., through his publicist, Lewis Kay, declined to respond to The Times regarding the allegations. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with ...

The FX television network, home to several series Louis C.K. produces, has cut ties with the comic and actor in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct, allegations C.K. himself confirmed.
