Five women accuse Louis CK of sexual misconduct

The US comedian's movie premiere has been cancelled hours before the screening amidst the allegations made against him

Five women have accused US comedian Louis CK of sexual misconduct.

The comedian’s movie "I Love You Daddy" was cancelled hours before the premiere, along with a Late Show appearance with Stephen Colbert after the allegations emerged.

Comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov have claimed that after performing at the US Comedy Arts Festival in 2002, Louis CK invited them up to his hotel room. As soon as they sat down, the comedian masturbated in front of them, they said.

The accusers said they agreed because he was a comedian they admired, and they wanted to celebrate.

Actor Abby Schachner, also accused the comedian of sexual misconduct. She said he masturbated while he was on the phone with her, when she called to invite him to one of her shows.

Comedian Rebecca Corry claimed the actor asked her if he could masturbate in front of her in 2005, but she declined.

A fifth woman who wanted to remain anonymous also accused CK, saying he repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate while she was working in production on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s, when he was a writer and producer.

She said she went along with his requests, and he performed the act while sat at his desk with her in his office.

Within hours of the allegations coming out on the New York Times, HBO dropped CK’s shows from its on demand service.  The premiere for his new film was cancelled, as well as an appearance on The Late Night Show With Stephen Colbert. 

The channel at which CK made his dramery, Louie, FX, have issued a statement saying it was “troubling” and said that they had not received any complaints.

The comedian’s publicist Lewis Kay responded to the reports, saying that the CK "is not going to answer any questions".

Kay said that CK would issue a statement "in the coming days".

These allegations are the latest in a series of sexual assault allegations against powerful figures in Hollywood, including those against Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
