First, he hosts the celebrity-studded autism benefit Night of Too Many Stars live on HBO from Madison Square Garden November 18.

In light of recent allegations against comedian Louis C.K., HBO is pulling all of his past projects from its on-demand services.

Louis C.K. victor Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series poses in the press room during the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on September 23, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

"I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family", Adlon added. I'm here. I have to say something.

Earlier today, the NY premiere of C.K.'s new film "I Love You, Daddy" was scrapped. But its stance changed with C.K.'s confession. It's so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior of my friend and partner, Louis C.K. In addition to co-creating FX's Emmy-nominated Better Things together, they co-starred as spouses on HBO's 2006-07 sitcom Lucky Louie, and she recurred as his on-again/off-again love interest Pamela on FX's Louie.

In a New York Times exposé, they claimed that the "Louie" star either masturbated in front of them or sought their permission to do so. "To women! Globally and historically, we're the number one cause of injury and mayhem to women... we're the worst thing that ever happens to them". According to the five accusations against C.K., he asked if he could masturbate in front of women, and masturbated in front of them or during phone calls, in several incidents dating back to the 1990s.

Louis C.K. has become the latest Hollywood celebrity to face allegations of sexual harassment, and HBO wasted no time with its response.

And Netflix announced it was not moving forward with a second stand-up special featuring C.K., citing his "unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues".

While C.K. has not yet responded to the Times report, when confronted in the past with rumors of misconduct, he has denied all wrongdoing.

Louis cancelled appearances on talk shows following the outing of the allegations and his shows have been pulled from some networks.

Following C.K.'s statement, the comedian's longtime network partner FX is cutting all ties effective immediately.
