HBO will pull Louis C.K. from services following masturbation claims

The premium network on Thursday had removed C.K. from the lineup of the network's live November 18 special, "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs".

Pamela Adlon is "devastated" after Louis C.K. admitted that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him "are true".

'At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true'.

"[In the light of allegations] What really creeps me out is the way that C.K.so comfortably inhabits the role of feminist comedian, the guy who's willing to say that men are bear-lions, who comprehends women's fears".

Earlier today, the NY premiere of C.K.'s new film "I Love You, Daddy" was scrapped. "It's so important", the star, writer, director and producer of FX's Better Things said.

Louis C.K.'s publicist, Lewis Kay, offered a response to the New York Times that only the most obsessively optimistic individual would take as anything other than an admission of guilt, where Kay sent an e-mail that read...

With C.K., this question is even thornier.

Pamela Adlon had teamed up with C.K. on numerous projects, including co-creating the FX series "Better Things" and acting in his popular show "Louie".

Representatives for Louis C.K., whose real name is Louis Székely, did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for further comment. One said he asked to masturbate in front of her but that she declined.

The Wrap reports that the movie's co-star, Chloe Grace Moretz, refused to do publicity some two weeks ago based on what she had heard about C.K.'s behavior.

I've been a stand-up comedian since 2011, and since at least 2012, when Gawker published a "blind item" strongly insinuating that Louis C.K. masturbated in front of nonconsenting women, comedians have joked about it with each other.

Louis cancelled appearances on talk shows following the outing of the allegations and his shows have been pulled from some networks. "To women! Globally and historically, we're the number one cause of injury and mayhem to women... we're the worst thing that ever happens to them". "And I wielded that power irresponsibly".

"Today, FX Networks and FX Productions are ending our association with Louis C.K.", said the network in a statement.
