According to the report, when they arrived at his room, C.K. asked Goodman and Wolov if he could take out his penis.

This is so much bigger than any one of us, and in the end will benefit everyone. I know that. We’ll have to wait and see, I suppose, what happens to the rest of these Louis C . K .-backed shows, because while I couldn’t care less about what happens to his career , we as a society are still in the place

Over the weekend, following allegations of sexual misconduct and a subsequent shitty non-apology, Louis C.K.’s entire career came crumbling down. The release of his movie I Love You, Daddy was cancelled; FX cut ties with C.K. and his production company; he’s been dropped by his representation and friends are making statements distancing themselves and apologizing for being complicit in his actions; Netflix cancelled his upcoming comedy special and HBO pulled his content from their streaming platforms as well as cutting him from their Night of Too Many Stars special. The list goes on.

His defense of it bothers me more than the actual play. * -

Have more than just one favourite artist? Louis has received over 30 Emmy nominations throughout his career , including wins for “Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series” for his work on the FX series, Louie and awards for “Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special” for his standup comedy specials.

All of this is 100% deserved and no one here is mourning Louis C.K.’s loss of work or status. But when you reach the level of success he had, and you lose everything, there are often a lot of people on the line that suffer alongside you. And because C.K. used his influence to amplify the voices of amazing women and other marginalized people–something that at best made a lot of people give him the benefit of the doubt for far too long, and at worst was a deliberate tactic to shield himself from accusations–those are now the people suffering the consequences of his actions.

FX has said they’re cutting ties with C.K., stating “He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him – Better Things, Baskets, One Mississippi and The Cops.”

his series, which is so much more than a sitcom. Louis uses his self-consciousness as a means of actually working through his own issues. What's different is that he appears to want to be a good man, not just a good artist.

Proving that most recently is comedian Louis C . K . who once called Trump “gross” and “dirty” — but his words just backfired in the most spectacular way as his sick For some reason, celebrities seem to think that their opinions are worth more than those of the average person. Career Opportunities.

But it’s not entirely clear what that means for all of those shows. These shows that Louis C.K. chose to produce are phenomenal works of art, and Pamela Adlon, Tig Notaro, and Zach Galifianakis (not to mention the many, many people employed by their shows), deserve so much more than to end up the collateral of one man’s abusive behavior.

FX has reportedly been fairly silent on what will happen to these shows. Tig Notaro has previously made it clear that his involvement in One Mississippi was in name only. And either FX is downplaying his role in Better Things, or it’s another show that could easily do without him.

But of all of C.K.’s projects he’s been booted from, at least one is reportedly dead in the water, and it’s a hell of a shame. The Cops is an animated series starring Albert Brooks, which received a 10-episode, straight-to-series order on TBS, produced by C.K.’s Pig Newton and FX Productions.

We now know it was also set to star Her Story’s Jen Richards, who has long been vocal about the lack of trans representation in Hollywood, both in characters and casting. Richards announced on Twitter that she, a trans actress, was slated to play a trans character, something that shouldn’t be a rarity but is. As she reminds us, “the consequences of these actions go far.”

This is clearly not meant to put her feelings or her career above the importance of calling out sexual assault. Rather, she’s drawing attention to the far-reaching consequences of these men’s actions. Not only did she lose a job, but we all lost the breaking of yet another shameful glass ceiling.

We’ll have to wait and see, I suppose, what happens to the rest of these Louis C.K.-backed shows, because while I couldn’t care less about what happens to his career, we as a society are still in the place where it too often takes someone like him to make sure other voices are heard. Men like Louis C.K. use their successes as leverage against women, and no one should be dependent on that sort of man for their career.
