Five women accuse comedian Louis CK of sexual harassment, four of whom say he masturbated in front of them, while Fifth claims to have asked to go with him to look at him, writes The New York Times.
Four comedian actresses, Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Rebecca Corry and Abby Schachner – and a fifth woman who spoke on condition of anonymity filed charges against the American comedian.
Goodman and Wolov said Louis CK stripped and masturbated after inviting them to his hotel room during the US Comedy Festival in 2002 in Aspen, Colorado.
Corry said that Louis CK, who was invited to appear on a television show in 2005, asked her if she wanted to go with him in the cab to watch him while he was sexually pleased. She was told to have reproached him reminding him that he had a pregnant daughter and wife.
Schachner told him that in 2003 he called Louis CK in 2003 to invite him to one of her shows and was astonished to realize that he was masturbating during the telephone conversation. “I felt embarrassed,” she told the New York Times.
The fifth woman, who did not want to be called, spoke about the alleged incidents that involved comic in the late 1990s while working on a production at The Chris Rock Show.
Louis CK, who was the writer and producer of the show, has repeatedly asked her to look at him while she is masturbating. She says she accepted his requests even if she knew that what she was doing was wrong. “He abused his position of power,” she said.
The premiere of Louis CK’s new film, “I Love You, Daddy,” was suddenly canceled after the New York Times appeared.
The film was written and directed by Louis CK, who plays the role of a father who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) from having a relationship with a 68-year-old (John Malkovich).
The film’s distributor, Orchard, did not confirm that he was releasing the film in cinemas on November 17, as was scheduled.
“In light of the accusations of Louis CK’s references in the New York Times today, the premiere of this evening is” I love you, Daddy, “Orchard announced in a press release.
And Louis CK’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert was canceled, while HBO withdrew all of his projects he had on On Demand.
In September, at the Toronto Film Festival, New York Times reporters have asked him to comment on the accusations made against him, and he said they were “rumors.”
Louis CK joins a list of Hollywood characters, including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner and James Toback, or Steven Seagal, who was also accused of sexual harassment.
