Netflix scraps Louis CK stand-up special

I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family. "And he said, 'Can I masturbate in front of you in your dressing room?'" Corry said, recounting the same story she told the New York Times. "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".

"Discussing her interview with Corry with GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos after the segment aired on Monday (13Nov17), she explained, "(Corry) said at the time, he said, 'Oh, I'm sorry that I forced you into a closet, ' and she said, 'Well, that's not even what happened, ' so then she was thinking he must do this with a lot of different people, because this isn't even this incident that happened".

'I wanted to pretend like it never happened.

This announcement came after Netflix canceled its upcoming standup special with C.K., HBO removed his standup from its catalogue, and The Orchard canceled the release of his new film ("I Love You, Daddy"). "But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d- isn't a question". "I mean, I wanted to do my job. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with". I didn't think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it.

Corry's claim that C.K.'s behaviour was an open secret was also echoed by comedian Marc Maron, who said on his podcast Monday that he confronted C.K. over the long-standing rumours - and was lied to.

While the comedian did not explicitly apologise, he said in his statement: "I have been remorseful of my actions". "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". "He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him - "Better Things, ' 'Baskets, ' 'One Mississippi" and "The Cops'".

Netflix announced that it was abandoning a second stand-up special featuring the star in the wake of what it called his "unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues".

Several media companies have also cut ties with the comedian: On Friday, his longtime network partner FX announced it has ended its association with him effective immediately.
