HBO cuts ties with Louis CK post misconduct claims

HBO will pull Louis C.K. from services following masturbation claims

Pamela Adlon is "devastated" after "friend and partner" Louis C.K. admitted that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him "are true". The exposé detailed multiple incidents of Louis C.K., undressing and masturbating in front of female comics, or pleasuring himself while on the phone with other cohorts. At the time, she said, "It hurts to read about things that people are saying about him".

As previously reported, C.K. responded with an apology and said the stories were true after he received major backlash following the Times piece. That may be guiding Spotify's decision not to intervene.

Actor Louis C.K. of the television show "Louie" speaks during the FX portion of the 2012 Winter TCA Press Tour at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa on January 15, 2012 in Pasadena, California.

The Wrap also reports that C.K. intends to make some kind of statement next week.

On Thursday, she wrote on Twitter that she believed the women who spoke to The Times, and added: "Though he apologised for his one time comment to me, I will no longer casually call Louie a friend". It's a predicament for them.

"I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn't want to hear it".

This decision has come as a result of rising air pollution in Delhi, and an attempt to reduce vehicular pollution in the city. United Airlines has asked its customers who plan to travel from 9 to 13 November to book their tickets before November 18.

Also up in the air is the fate of I Love You, Daddy, a feature film written, directed and starring C.K. The $5 million independent movie was set to enjoy its gala premiere Thursday night only to be abruptly canceled as the news spread of the imminent New York Times exposé.

The cable network said in a statement that Louis C.K. would "no longer be participating in the benefit concert, Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" and that it was removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services.

Those actions followed earlier moves by HBO and Netflix. Both Adlon and C.K. are executive producers of the show, with the stand-up comedian directing it.

The allegations and subsequent admittance has prompted Universal Pictures and Illuminations to cut ties with the comedian for the upcoming film, The Secret Life Of Pets 2, according to Deadline.

As for Spotify, all of the content appears intact.
