Comedian Louis C.K. accused of masturbating in front of multiple women


Emmy-winning comedian and actor, Louis CK, has been accused of sexual misconduct dating back at least a decade.
The New York Times reported on Thursday, that Two female comedians claim that Louis CK, the creator and star of the FX series "Louie," masturbated in front of them in 2002, while the three other women told The Times about other instances of alleged sexual misconduct.
In the explosive reports published in The Times, comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov allege that Louis CK in 2002 invited them to his hotel room in Colorado, undressed himself and masturbated in front of them. Abby Schachner, a comedian who says she called Louis CK to invite him to one of her performances in 2003, claims she could hear him masturbating during their phone conversation. Rebecca Corry, a writer, and actress, alleges that Louis CK asked whether he could masturbate in front of her while they appeared together on a television pilot in 2005.
The report was published hours after the New York premiere of a new film directed by Louis CK. The distributor of the film, titled "I Love You, Daddy," quickly released a statement saying that the screening at the Paris Theatre had been called off because of "unexpected circumstances."
"There is never a place for the behavior detailed in these allegations," the distributor, The Orchard, said in a statement. "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film, and continuing to review the situation."

Mexican-American comedian and actor has now joined the list of high-profile men in Hollywood facing sexual misconduct allegations including Oscar-winning mogul Harvey Weinstein, screenwriter James Toback, "Rush Hour" director Brett Ratner, actor Steven Seagal and  Kevin Spacey.
