Louis C.K.'s world is crumbling down.
Louis C.K.'s biggest projects are coming to an end. After the number of women who came forward claiming the comedian inflicted inappropriate sexual acts around them, many of his partnerships and films are all being reconsidered.
I Love You Daddy is one of the many projects to cut ties with the star amid the controversy. The film was set to have a premiere in the upcoming weeks but The Orchard, the distribution company behind the movie, said they will not be moving forward with a release date. Louis apparently wrote and starred in the film that follows a successful T.V. writer's daughter who is dating a much older filmmaker. TMZ reports that there's one scene in the film where a man pretends to masturbate in front of people.
HBO has also cut Louis from being apart of a comedy benefit that's set to air November 18th. The broadcast service also plans on “removing Louis C.K.’s past projects from its On Demand services," The New York Times reports.
In last night's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Louis' allegations were brought up since the comedian cancelled his appearance. "For those of you tuning in to see my interview with Louis C.K. tonight, I have some bad news. Then, I have some really bad news," Stephen said. "Louis cancelled his appearance here tonight because The New York Times broke this story today: Five women are accusing Louis C.K. of sexual misconduct."
According to the USA Today, Louis is set to issue a statement "in the coming days."
The allegations against Louis have been floating around for a few years now and only made headlines since yesterday's expose. Back in 2015 Jen Kirkman revealed in a podcast, that has since been deleted, that Louis made going on tour with him a hard decision.
"And this guy didn’t rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard,” she said, not revealing his name at the time. “Because I knew if I did [go on tour], I’d be getting more of the same weird treatment I’d been getting from him.”
Though he apologized for his one time comment to me, I will no longer casually call Louie a friend. I can't support what I now KNOW are his contributions to the power dynamic in this business.— JEN KIRKMAN (@JenKirkman) November 9, 2017
