Women Accuse Louis CK Of Sexual Misconduct

Women Accuse Louis CK Of Sexual Misconduct

Comedic actor Louis C.K. became the latest actor embroiled in a sex scandal on Thursday when the New York Times published a report with allegations from five women.

"He asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me", she told the Times.

Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, a comedy duo, told New York Times that Louis C.K. invited them to his room after their show in Aspen, Colorado in 2002. That's nothing to me. When asked about it by the Times, C.K. responded, "If you actually participate in a rumor, you make it bigger and you make it real", before adding, "No".

The New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s controversial new movie "I Love You, Daddy" has been abruptly cancelled at the last minute due to an impending New York Times story on the comedian that are rumored to contain some bombshell revelations, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The cancellation was attributed to "unexpected circumstances", but those observing the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein revelations have been vocally expecting this particular revelation for the past week. In I Love You Daddy, a character pretends to masturbate at length in public while other characters defend that he's not a sexual predator. When pressed further, he said again, "They're rumors, that's all that is". "It's amusing. I didn't think of that". She told the Times she sat in the comedian's office, with colleagues outside the door, as he masturbated.

In the explosive story, multiple women accused the comic of masturbating in front of them without consent in various instances. A fifth woman, whose story was included anonymously, said she was in her early 20s and working on The Chris Rock Show in the late '90s when C.K., a writer and producer on the show, repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate and she agreed, because of the workplace culture.

"His face got red", Corry recalled, "and he told me he had issues".

"I have not spoken to Louis in probably going on two years now", she said. "I think this might be a case of there's nothing there", Kirkman said. Schachner said the experience discouraged her from pursuing a career in comedy. That Oct. 5 story, and another on Weinstein in The New Yorker a week later, set off a cascade of allegations of sexual misdeeds against Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and other Hollywood figures that continues. If anything, those traits only make harassers more adept at avoiding consequences - or at least, one hopes, they used to.
