In various accounts from comedians like Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Abby Schachner, Rebecca Corry and one other woman who wishes to remain anonymous, there are allegations of Louis masturbating or requesting to masturbate in front of them.
The woman claimed Louis C.K. repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate.
The show's executive producers, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, caught wind of the misconduct. "What happened to Rebecca [Corry] on that set was very bad". But there is an article about Louis C.K. and similar circumstances that just showed up the NY Times, and it is damning to say the least.
Louis CK wrote and directed the controversial I Love You, Daddy, and he stars as a television writer and producer whose teenage daughter (Chloë Moretz) is seduced by a predatory 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich).
Rumors of alleged inappropriate behavior involving Louis C.K. have been gossiped about for years. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed.
"Sadly, I've come to learn that Louis C.K.'s victims are not only real", she said in email, "but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community". That Oct. 5 story, and another on Weinstein in The New Yorker a week later, set off a cascade of allegations of sexual misdeeds against Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and other Hollywood figures that continues.
Though Louis C.K.'s name still appears in the credits of One Mississippi, Notaro distanced herself from him in the months leading up to Season 2.
Although no one is aware of exactly what the Times will be reporting, The Hollywood Reporter says that the cancellations are directly related to whatever is in the story, and not the film. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be the lead guest star on the episode instead.
Corry says she made a decision to go on with the show, because she didn't want to be the person who stopped production. When pressed further, he said again, "They're rumors, that's all that is". After Defamer posted rumors alluding to C.K.'s history of sexual misconduct, Corry said C.K. reached out to her, too: He apologized for an incident that never happened - shoving her into a bathroom - instead of their encounter on the TV pilot.
