No One is Sacred

US comedian Louis CK has been accused of sexual misconduct by five women in Hollywood. His newest movie premiere was cancelled hours before screening when the news broke.

Four of the accusers told the New York Times that he performed certain acts in front of them without their consent. The fifth said he had asked to do so. He has made no comment on these allegations thus far. The Emmy-winning comic’s new movie I Love You, Daddy was supposed to premiere when the news broke and there is now some real confusion as to when, or if, it will be released.

He starred in Louie, an autobiographical series about his life. Don’t think he ever mentioned these parts though.

The allegations cover actions done from 2002 to 2005, in which he removed his clothes and performed sex acts in front of the victims. They were Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Rebecca Corry and Abby Schachner with the fifth choosing to remain anonymous.

CK’s movie distributor the Orchard has not confirmed that it will go ahead with its release date next week on November 17th.

Louis CK’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert was also cancelled, along with HBO purging all his content from On Demand services.

The comedian played a small part in the hit TV show Parks and Recreation as the police officer.

He joins the growing list of Hollywood figures to be accused of sexual misconduct, alongside Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

Nothing is sacred.
