Update: Netflix has now announced that they will not produce CK’s upcoming comedy special as planned.
Yesterday, The New York Times did a full report on Louis CK and 5 women who claim to have been sexually harassed by the veteran comedian. Following the report, the theater that was looking to premiere C.K.’s film I Love You, Daddy has decided not to move forward. If that wasn’t enough for C.K. to see how serious things are getting, HBO has also shared they have stopped the plans of any C.K. projects with their company.
Just hours after the New York Times published their investigative piece where five women came forward detailing alleged sexual misconduct by Louis C.K., HBO has decided to rid themselves of anything and everything having to do with the comedian on their On Demand services. In a statement released by an HBO spokesperson, the network announced that C.K. has also been removed from the lineup for the “Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs” this weekend.
