Louis CK:‘These stories are true’
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

COMEDIAN Louis C.K. has said the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him are true.

He apologized Friday after a bombshell report by the New York Times the day before cited five women who said the comedian engaged in sexual misconduct, including masturbating in front of them.

“These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true,” he wrote. “But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”

He went on to say that he is “remorseful” and has “tried to learn” from his irresponsible behavior.

Universal and Illumination Animation announced Friday that they have terminated their relationship with Louis C.K. on “The Secret Life of Pets 2.”

In 2016’s “The Secret Life of Pets,” the comedian voiced the lead dog, Max, and was set to reprise the role in the sequel, which is slated for a June 7, 2019 release.

Earlier Friday, The Orchard announced they no longer planned to release C.K.’s feature “I Love You, Daddy” after purchasing the movie out of TIFF for US$5 million. The indie distributor said it “will not be moving forward with the release” of the movie, which was set to open in select theaters Nov. 17.

“I Love You, Daddy” had already generated controversy heading into its debut for an inter-generational romance at the core of the drama. It centers on a successful television writer whose daughter becomes the object of an older filmmaker idol’s obsessions. His daughter, played by Chloe Grace Moretz, is 17. The director is played by John Malkovich, who is several decades removed from the teenager. C.K. stars in the film, as well as wrote and directed it.

Also Friday, C.K. was dropped by APA, 3 Arts and his publicist, Lewis Kay. FX Networks and FX Productions have cut ties with C.K. and has terminated the overall deal with his production company, Pig Newton.

“He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him — ‘Better Things,’ ‘Baskets,’ ‘One Mississippi’ and ‘The Cops,’” FX said in a statement.

Since the story on C.K. broke, the comedian’s HBO projects, which include “Lucky Louie,” are being removed from the premium cable channel’s on-demand services. In addition, the network said that C.K. will no longer be participating in its “Night of Too Many Stars” charity special.

“I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother,” Louis C.K. wrote. “I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”(SD-Agencies)
