Louis C.K. Loses Multiple Jobs After Admitting to Sexual Misconduct

Don't say that Louis C.K. isn't facing any consequences for the revelation last week of disturbing sexual misconduct in his past. Plans to release his new movie I Love You, Daddy were cancelled, and he was fired from the several series that he produces for the FX network. HBO pulled all of his material from its library and cancelled a deal for an upcoming special. Netflix also cancelled plans to produce a new stand-up special starring C.K., and TBS ditched plans to make a C.K.-produced animated series. Overall, it was a terrible weekend that doesn't bode well for C.K.'s professional future.

“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,” the network said in a statement obtained by Us Weekly. “Louis has now confirmed the truth of the reports relating to the five women victimized by his misconduct, which we were unaware of previously. As far as we know, his behavior over the past eight years on all five series he has produced for FX Networks and/or FX Productions has been professional. However, now is not the time for him to make television shows. Now is the time for him to honestly address the women who have come forth to speak about their painful experiences, a process which he began today with his public statement.”

“FX Networks and FX Productions remain committed to doing everything we can to ensure that all people work in an environment that is safe, respectful and fair, and we will continue our review of all of these productions to ensure that was and is the case,” they added.

Five women, including comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, accused the star of harassment in an expose published by The New York Times on Thursday, November 9. In the wake of the news, his indie film I Love You, Daddy – which was set to premiere November 17 — was dropped and HBO also severed all ties with him.

In a statement on Friday morning, the actor confirmed that “these stories are true” in a lengthy statement to Us. “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was OK because I never showed a woman my d—k without asking first, which is also true. 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—k isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”
