Louis C.K. Issues Statement On Sexual Harassment: "There Is Nothing About This That I Forgive Myself For"


Here is Louis C.K's response in full to yesterday's New York Times piece in which five women accused him of sexual misconduct:

In the wake of The New York Times expose yesterday, The Orchard pulled the release of C.K.'s film I Love You, Daddy which premiered at TIFF and which they spent a reported $5M to acquire. The pic's premiere was, of course, cancelled yesterday as well. HBO pull C.K. from their Nov. 18 Night of Too Many Stars special and the pay TV network also pulled all of the comedian's content from their HBO On-Demand service. Netflix opted not to move ahead with a second C.K. stand-up special they were producing, however, the comedian's existing specials on Netflix, 2017 as well as the 2015 Live at the Comedy Store, which Netflix picked up last August, will remain on the streaming service. FX, C.K.'s home for the last eight years, released a statement yesterday that his situation was "under review". C.K. is a six-time Emmy winner across his FX series Louie as well as a number of stand-up specials and writing on The Chris Rock Show.
