Louis CK's Movie Premiere Canceled Ahead of Reported New York Times Story

Louis CK Accused of Masturbating in Front of Women

Comedian Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

In it, comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov allege that CK masturbated in front of them in a hotel room during the 2002 US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado.

"Last time I talked to you ended in a sordid fashion".

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Goodman said.

A year later, comedian Abby Schnacher called C.K.to invite him to one of her stand-up sets, and said she could hear him masturbating during the phone call. Notaro is one of the few in the comedy world who has spoken out about the allegations toward Louis C.K., but learned about his track record after their series had been sold to Amazon.

As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.

After the publication contacted C.K. and his representative about the graphic accusations, the premiere of his new movie I Love You Daddy was canceled.

That culture of silence would appear to be changing as a number of other Hollywood figures have been accused of patterns of sexual misconduct since the Weinstein story broke in early October - also in a New York Times story - and opened the floodgates for others to speak out about the industry's dirty little secret.

The event was pulled "due to unexpected circumstances", the film's distribution company, the Orchard, said in an email.


Well, according to a huge New York Times article, various comedy personalities and celebrities have known of Louis C.K.'s antics for some time, but have stayed silent because of the potential damage that feared to their careers.

In 2015, Gawker published a story detailing allegations of mistreatment of women by Louis C.K.

The film has generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

"Daddy" follows a Manhattan-based TV writer-producer (C.K.) whose 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) falls in love with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich).

Louis CK has been forced to cancel the premiere of his new film following allegations of sexual misconduct.

The Times story's three listed writers included Jodi Kantor, who also co-wrote the paper's earlier investigative reports on fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, accused by almost 80 women of sexually harassing, coercing, assaulting or raping them in episodes dating back four decades.
