Louis C.K., a veteran stand-up comic who appeared at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta last year, masturbated or asked to masturbate in front of multiple of women over the years.

The streaming giant made a deal to release two C.K. specials.

It seems that Better Things, Baskets, and One Mississippi will continue with their creators and current head writers, sans C.K.'s involvement. "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". However, now is not the time for him to make television shows. I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward.

"[In the light of allegations] What really creeps me out is the way that C.K.so comfortably inhabits the role of feminist comedian, the guy who's willing to say that men are bear-lions, who comprehends women's fears". FX Networks and FXP take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace. It also said it was reviewing the matter.

The Orchard, the distribution company for the comic's controversial movie "I Love You, Daddy", dropped the film one week before its November 17 release. A blunt, experimental, hilarious new kind of sitcom, the show earned critical raves and awards, and helped put FX on the map as a destination for creatively adventurous programming. In addition, HBO is removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services.

In a Thursday story from The New York Times, five women said they had interactions with the 50-year-old actor in which he exposed himself to them. Earlier that day, C.K. canceled his appearance that night on Late Night with Stephen Colbert along with the premiere of his new film I Love You, Daddy. The women described themselves as being "paralyzed" during the incident and running out of the hotel room after C.K. ejaculated. "It's so important", the Better Things star began in a statement to Us Weekly. It's a predicament for them. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly", he wrote in a lengthy statement. "As far as I'm concerned, before we talk about art, we should listen to them". NYT reports, "Ms. Notaro said she was standing in support of those with the courage "to speak up against such a powerful figure", she said, "as well as the multitude of women still out there, not quite ready to share their nightmares". And I have to reconcile it with who I am.
