FX severs ties with Louis CK

12 November 2017

Louis C.K. was canned by FX amid a sexual misconduct scandal involving the comedian. "I'm really thrilled to be able to return to HBO", he says.

In his statement, he said he thought it was Ok because he never "showed his d*ck" without asking them first. "This sort of subtle aggrandisement seems to me to be all over Louie, this way the show burnishes Louis C.K., often at the expense of Louie, as a guy who gets the complexities of male and female experience".

That stance has been called into question by the New York Times story, which includes on-the-record descriptions from women who say that, on the pretext of talking about comedy or other business, Louis C.K. masturbated in front of them, or asked if he could.

"I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward", Adlon said.

In a statement released by his representative, the American comedian and film star expressed his remorse to the women - Abby Schachner, Rebecca Corry, Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov and another who chose to remain anonymous - saying that there was "nothing about this that I forgive myself for". 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.

"We are obviously very troubled by the allegations about Louis C.K. published in The New York Times today", the network said in a statement.

Louis CK's relationship with the network, FX, is over.

FX has fired Louis C.K. after the comedian admitted to masturbating in front of multiple women. "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 awful, negative things".

Additionally, 3 Arts Management and Kovert Creative have also parted ways with C.K., leaving him without his management company and publicists. "The network has received no allegations of misconduct by Louis C.K. related to any of our five shows produced together over the past eight years. And I wielded that power irresponsibly". It's a predicament for them.

"I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with whose professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this", he said. The dark comedy which C.K.co-wrote, stars in and directed also features a murderer's row of Hollywood stars. And I've tried to learn from them.

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.
