"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".
Pamela Adlon - the writer/actress who co-created Better Things with Louis C.K. for FX - says she is "devastated" to learn how her "friend and partner" behaved with so many women. In 2006, she starred as C.K.'s wife in the ill-fated HBO sitcom Lucky Louie, which was canceled after just one season. Now is obviously not the time to ask this question, as Emily Nussbaum elegantly explored in a New Yorker piece on the allegations.
"[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".
Expressing resentment Adlon concluded her statement saying, "I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able". It's so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior of my friend and partner, Louis C.K. But its stance changed with C.K.'s confession.
Adlon was a cast regular on Louis CK's popular FX show Louie, and he wrote and appeared on several episodes of Better Things, and has a creator and co-producer credit on the show.
In a New York Times exposé, they claimed that the "Louie" star either masturbated in front of them or sought their permission to do so.
Louis C.K. has become the latest Hollywood celebrity to face allegations of sexual harassment, and HBO wasted no time with its response.
The Wrap also reports that C.K. intends to make some kind of statement next week. Others, including FX, have refrained from removing earlier Louis content. "The power I had with these women is that they admired me, and I wielded that power irresponsibly", he said.
"We were together a lot, Louis and me", Royce said, speaking of the two years they spent working on the show, beginning in 2005.
Immediately after allegations from multiple women against the comedian became public, HBO announced that it removed C.K. from its upcoming benefit event program.
