How Will The Louis CK Scandal Affect The Future Of FX?

HBO Removes Louis CK Concerts, Says He Won't Appear on Show

Rumors of comedian Louis C.K. masturbating in front of female comedians had been circulating for years prior to the publication of a New York Times exposé on Thursday, in which five women accused C.K. of sexual misconduct, with some alleging that he masturbated in front of them.

Five women came forward to tell The New York Times about various instances when the comedian masturbated in front of them.

Also Friday, Louis C.K.'s longtime agent and publicist, Lewis Kay, tweeted: "As of today, I no longer represent Louis C.K".

Popular American magazine People reported that in a statement released on Friday afternoon, the "Better Things" star, who co-created the dramedy series with Louis C.K, said, "My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K".

"I have been remorseful of my actions", he said in the statement, without every using the phrase "I'm sorry" or "I apologize".

The Orchard first took a stance against Louis by canceling the movie premiere and then shelving the release of his next film, I Love You Daddy. But in interviews, Adlon said she saw it differently, and thought that her character went along with the kiss.


Pamela Adlon has released a statement on Louis C.K.

FX, the network that aired Louis C.K.'s hit show Louie, has ended its relationship with the comic. "All I know is that, I know about him as being my partner on a show that is the opposite of any of this kind of terrible, negative things". According to a statement as obtained by Us Weekly, CK "will no longer serve as an executive producer" on any of the shows he was working on including, One Mississippi, The Cops, and Better Things.

Meanwhile, HBO announced it was dropping the comedian from its upcoming "Night of Too Many Stars" benefit show scheduled for November 18.

Jenni Konner, the former Girls show-runner, had this to say: "Your move, FX".

On Friday morning, Louis confirmed that the accusations were true and he admitted that he "abused power" that he had over women. There are a couple noteworthy components to today's story: One, the scandal is taking place amidst a widespread sexual misconduct reckoning where a mogul like C.K.is not even the biggest story in the news; two, he's not denying it.

In "Better Things", Adlon plays a character inspired by her own life, a single mother raising three daughters while also pursuing a career as an actress.
