Louie CK admits to sexual misconduct allegations

Pamela Adlon is "devastated" after "friend and partner" Louis C.K. admitted that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him "are true".

HBO has reportedly been pulling past Louis C.K. programs, such as his "Lucky Louie" series and his stand-up comedy specials, from its website.

"Louis C.K. will no longer be participating in the "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs", which will be presented live on HBO on November 18".

The media championed Louis C.K., as a feminist ally of sorts. Multiple allegations against Harvey Weinstein stripped him of his professional power, and Kevin Spacey, accused of unwanted advances against a then-14 year old co-star, has been dropped from Netflix's House of Cards, among other projects.

Louis C.K.'s publicist, Lewis Kay, offered a response to the New York Times that only the most obsessively optimistic individual would take as anything other than an admission of guilt, where Kay sent an e-mail that read... Notaro has since distanced herself from Szekely, while FX is airing the second season of Adlon's show "Better Things", co-created by the comedian.

Royce says he wholly stands behind the women who came forward against C.K.

Actor Louis C.K. of the television show "Louie" speaks during the FX portion of the 2012 Winter TCA Press Tour at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa on January 15, 2012 in Pasadena, California.

The pair worked together on FX's Better Things, where Adlon served as the co-creator, a lead character, and an executive producer. Specifically, a New York Times article revealed that the comedian masturbated in front of numerous female colleagues, over a period of years. Three of the women said that he exposed himself and masturbated in front of them, one said that he asked her to watch him masturbate and she refused, and another said that Louis CK masturbated while they were on the phone.

"Today, FX Networks and FX Productions are ending our association with Louis C.K.", said the network in a statement. But I'm sure it was before the last time he was on Parks and Rec.

"I Love You, Daddy" star Chloe Grace Moretz also declined to join the promotion of the film two weeks before C.K.'s sexual misconduct was reported.
