Five females say Louis C.K . subjected them to sex misconduct, making public rumors that have followed one of the country’s most popular comedians for the past several years.
In interviews with the New York Times , comedic duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Woloy said they were invited to C.K.’s hotel room during the U.S. Comedy Art Festival in Aspen, Colorado, in 2002. Once they arrived in his room, C.K. would like to know whether he could take out his penis, shed all of his apparel, and began to masturbate. The two said they fled the room after he ejaculated.
In 2003, Abby Schachner saidC.K. masturbated while they had a phone conversation, and in 2005, another comedian, Rebecca Corry, said he asked if he could masturbate in front of her. Corry said she said no.
Another female comedian, who spoke to the newspaper anonymously, said C.K. repeatedly is necessary to masturbate in front of her when they worked together at the Chris Rock Show in the late 1990 s. She said she acquiesced to his petition, and he masturbated in front of her in its term of office during the course of its workday.
“It was something that I knew was wrong, ” she said. “I believe the big piece of why I said yes was because of the culture. He abused his power.”
When asked for commentary, Lewis Kay, C.K.’s publicist, said, “Louis is not going to answer any questions.”
Last August, comedian Tig Notaro said C.K. needed to address his sex misconduct issues.
Earlier on Thursday, the premiere of C.K.’s new controversial cinema, I Love You Daddy , was abruptly canceled, because of “unexpected circumstances.” A character in that film imitations masturbating in front of other people. His scheduled Thursday night appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled.
