"However, now is not the time for him to make television shows", the statement said. "Louis's unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand up special, as had been planned". FX has cut ties with Louis CK in the wake of the allegations.
"These stories are true", said the writer, actor and stand-up comedian in a statement released to United States media a day after America's most prestigious newspaper published accusations from the women saying that he masturbated or asked to masturbate in front of them or on the telephone in separate incidents dating from the late 1990s to 2005.
"I have been remorseful of my actions", he said in the statement, without every using the phrase "I'm sorry" or "I apologize".
"As far as we know, his behaviour over the past eight years on all five series he has produced for FX Networks and/or FX Productions has been professional". People made jokes about it all the time, ' the comedian and actress said. Moving forward, he also will not be involved in the FX comedies he co-created: Pamela Adlon's Better Things and Zach Galifianakis' Baskets, as well as FX Productions' One Mississippi and The Cops.

There are a couple noteworthy components to today's story: One, the scandal is taking place amidst a widespread sexual misconduct reckoning where a mogul like C.K.is not even the biggest story in the news; two, he's not denying it.
The company that bought Louis CK's semi-autobiographical movie I Love You, Daddy said on Friday it would no longer be distributing the film. Distribution company the Orchard canceled its premiere ahead of the Times piece, and announced that it is "giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation". "It was always out there, but then it would pick up momentum at different times", he said.
"My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K".
And it's not just collaborators who are backing away from C.K. Stars in the comedy world and Hollywood at large quickly reacted to the news on social media, voicing their disgust and concern. Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov said that while with C.K.in his hotel room after their show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002, he "proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating". I knew that all anyone in the audience was thinking about was him. "This is inexcusable and he needs to address it", Michael Ian Black tweeted.
