Louis CK Accused of Masturbating in Front of Women

Louis CK's controversial 'I Love You, Daddy' cancels premiere ahead of NY Times story

Louis CK Movie Premiere Canceled On The Verge Of Potentially “Damning” New York Times Story

In the New York Times story, five women relayed stories of C.K.'s behavior and desire to masturbate in from of him. The pair assumed the meeting would be "collegial".

Louis C.K. has won multiple Emmy Awards for his work on the FX comedy series Louie. In the room, they said, the comedian asked them if he could take out his penis. They thought it was a joke - "and then he really did it", Goodman is quoted as saying.

The news is the latest of numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault against prominent Hollywood men, including actor Kevin Spacey and producer Brett Ratner, that have emerged in the wake of New York Times and New Yorker reports about studio mogul Harvey Weinstein last month.

Abby Schachner accuses CK of masturbating during a phone conversation in 2003, while Rebecca Corry claims that the star asked if he could masturbate in front of her during the filming of a TV pilot in 2005. "Sadly, I've come to learn that Louis C.K.'s victims are not only real", she told The Times, "but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community". The executive producers of the production, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, confirmed the incident.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was terrible", Cox said in an email to the New York Times, adding that she felt "outrage and shock".

In addition to C.K, the film also stars John Malkovich, Chloe Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Edie Falco, Charlie Day, Pamela Adlon, Helen Hunt and Ebonee Noel. She now says she thinks "he released my album to cover his tracks", she said. In fact, she said she talks to him on a regular basis. 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.

In 2002, a Chicago comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, landed their big break: a chance to perform at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo.

Word that an unflattering story about Louis C.K. was on the verge of breaking began spreading earlier Thursday when the NY premiere of his forthcoming movie - titled "I Love You, Daddy", which he directed - was abruptly cancelled hours before it was to take place.

Mr. C.K. (real name Louis Székely) also canceled his interview Thursday night with Mr. Colbert, and William H. Macy is expected to take his place, Variety said.
