Louis CK accused of masturbating in front of female comedians

When the NY Times asked C.K.to address the allegations at the Toronto Film Festival in September, he brushed them off.

The woman claimed Louis C.K. repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate. She declined, and the incident was corroborated to the Times by the show's producers, actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette. "What happened to Rebecca on that set was very bad", Cox wrote in an email to the paper.

"In light of the allegations concerning Louis C.K. referenced in today's New York Times", the Orchard said in a statement, "we are cancelling tonight's premiere of I Love You, Daddy".

Louis C.K.'s film I Love You, Daddy which was set to premiere today in NY has been suddenly cancelled, in addition to an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The comedian also cancelled a planned appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert".

Although outrageous behavior is de rigueur in the comedy world, the women felt C.K.'s behavior was abusive.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Min Goodman told the Times. And let us not forget the allegations YEARS AGO that surfaced about Woody Allen (he did end up marrying his adopted daughter which is a 10 out of 10 on the creepy scale), seems C.K. may be standing on ice that is just as thin as "Woody" at this point. She described an alleged encounter that took place in the late '90s while she was working in production at "The Chris Rock Show".




CNN has not confirmed the women's stories independently and has reached out to representatives for C.K. for comment.

I Love You, Daddy was supposed to screen in New York City on Thursday night, but the premiere has been cancelled. The show premiered only a month before the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, opening the floodgates in Hollywood for women, and men, to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be the lead guest star on the episode instead.

Corry said that the comedian acknowledged the incident and said, "I used to misread people back then".

She also claims C.K. later emailed her in 2015, and that he apologized. She said it's common talk at comedy clubs "what some big-shot comedian or person has done".

A year later, Roseanne Barr told the Daily Beast she was aware of the stories about C.K.'s alleged behavior. But they say Louis immediately asked if he could take out his penis as soon as they sat down.
