Louis CK called sexual misconduct accuser a decade after incident to apologise

2017 Summer TCA Tour- Day 16

"It was just actually sort of common knowledge in the comedy world", she said of the allegations of C.K.'s sexual misconduct, which he has since admitted are "true" in a lengthy statement. I have to say something.

The cable network said in a statement that Louis C.K. would "no longer be participating in the benefit concert, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" and that it was removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services. Now is the time for him to honestly address the women who have come forth to speak about their painful experiences, a process which he began today with his public statement.

"I wanted to pretend like it never happened, to do my job", Corry said of her reaction at the time. "I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able". According to almost 20 sources, women had not only been subject to abuse from C.K. himself but also threatened and blacklisted from comedy jobs by his influential manager, Dave Becky. "Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with". Tech Crunch has reportedly reached out to Netflix to ask whether these specials will be removed, but they have not responded at the time of this article. "And I wielded that power irresponsibly". "All I know is that, I know about him as being my partner on a show that is the opposite of any of this kind of terrible, negative things".

"I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it".

Update (Oct. 10, 12:10 p.m.): A Netflix spokesperson has announced that the streaming platform will no longer move forward with plans for an upcoming Louis C.K. stand-up special. "Because I have learned that doing nothing, saying nothing, is not helpful". And I've tried to learn from them. "And I have to reconcile it with who I am".

Inviting a woman up to your hotel room, taking your clothes off in front of her and starting to masturbate even when she tells you not to likely gives you a lot of information about how a situation like that might unfold and how all the participants in it might react.
