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.

Louis CK Accused of Sexual Misconduct by 5 Women

  Louis CK Accused of Sexual Misconduct by 5 Women Female comedian says "Louie" star "started masturbating" while she was at his hotel room, The New York Times reportsAmong the accusers in the Times piece are comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, who according to the Times piece were invited by the comedian to his hotel room after their show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado, in 2012. According to the report, when they arrived at his room, C.K. asked Goodman and Wolov if he could take out his penis.

Louis C . K . has never settled for just making jokes about other people; he has built a career on being a chronicler of his own privilege, his own comfort, his own excess But the allegations against C . K ., at least for people who have been his fans or defenders, feel more disappointing than the litany of other

Louis CK ruined not only his own reputation as the comic’s comic, but also the work he had done over his career . I’m sad that someone whom I believed to have some integrity ruined the lives of women who could have been just as great.

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.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Gets 'Psyched Up' for Third Round of Chemo With the Help of Her 'Veep' Co-Stars

  Julia Louis-Dreyfus Gets 'Psyched Up' for Third Round of Chemo With the Help of Her 'Veep' Co-Stars The 56-year-old actress revealed she was diagnosed with breast cancer in September.The 56-year-old actress took to Twitter on Thursday to share the hilarious way her Veep co-stars, Matt Walsh and Sam Richardson, helped her get 'psyched' ahead of her third round of chemotherapy.

His career is over for now. He should be forgiven, but it’s not going to happen for a very long time This is a real shame, because Louis CK is the victim of a hit job that was It's more common than anyone thinks. Just in my home town, an 11 year old was raped in front of a small group of people.

Louis C . K . is in deep shit. C . K . also had a habit of presuming his own personal flaws— his inner racism, his sexual hang-ups, etc.—were universal aspects of the human condition. But like Pryor, he was a man who rose to prominence as more than just a comedian, but as a sage truth-teller, willing

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.

Louis C.K. Dropped From ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ by Universal, Illumination

  Louis C.K. Dropped From ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ by Universal, Illumination Louis C.K. Dropped From ‘Secret Life of Pets 2’ by Universal, IlluminationHe voiced the lead character Max, a Jack Russell terrier, in last year’s “The Secret Life of Pets,” which grossed $875 million worldwide and also starred Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, and Kevin Hart. The sequel is scheduled to open on June 7, 2019.

“One lady said, ‘ Louis C . K . masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams,'” he said. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much , this grown-ass woman.” Show business is just harder than that — them women sounded like, I hate to say it, they sounded weak.

We did, however, get more comfortable with ourselves, doing what we wanted to do. I just ask things that I want to know.” With Louie , I genuinely feel bad for my friend and I love him as a person, but in reality, he f—cked up. I don’t want to see his career ruined .

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.
