HBO severs ties with Louis CK after allegations of sexual misconduct


A female pal and creative collaborator of disgraced comic Louis C.K. said Friday she's "grieving" over the funnyman's admission of crude sexual misconduct. Additionally, C.K. has been dropped from the Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs special on November 18.

On Thursday, she wrote on Twitter that she believed the women who spoke to The Times, and added: "Though he apologised for his one time comment to me, I will no longer casually call Louie a friend".

Adlon released a statement to Entertainment Tonight expressing her shock and devastation over the incident. "Hi". I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position.

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged in a New York Times article on Thursday that he "proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating" during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002.

Amazon devices to be sold at Whole Foods locations around the country
Since Amazon bought Whole Foods in August, it's doing things a little differently this Black Friday. The discounts vary, and include $30 off the Echo Plus, Kindle Paperwhite, and Fire HD 8 tablet.


I've been a stand-up comedian since 2011, and since at least 2012, when Gawker published a "blind item" strongly insinuating that Louis C.K. masturbated in front of nonconsenting women, comedians have joked about it with each other. At the sharp end of this: men who have been allowed to flourish with impunity, with no consequences for their behaviour as long as they were rich, powerful or influential enough.

'Universal Pictures and Illumination have terminated their relationship with Louis C.K. on The Secret Life of Pets 2, ' read a statement from the studio, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Earlier today, the NY premiere of C.K.'s new film "I Love You, Daddy" was scrapped. "The allegations made by several women in The New York Times about Louis C.K.'s behavior are disturbing", the company stated.

But Netflix isn't removing earlier content from the comedian.

Warren Takes Back Claim Democratic Nomination Was Rigged
Her book has raised controversy over her criticism of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party, both which she said she respects. With inexplicably obtuse gall, Clinton claims her loss in the general election was because of anything but herself.


Moreover, HBO is also pulling his previous standup specials from its on-demand services.

Meanwhile, film distributor The Orchard addressed C.K.'s sexual assault scandal by announcing the cancellation of "I Love You, Daddy's" premiere.

Pamela Adlon recently released a statement after her good friend and partner, Louis C.K., admitted to sexually assaulting multiple women in the past.
