All is not O.K. for comedian Louis C.K.

Just hours after the funnyman was slammed by several women with claims he masturbated in front of them at various times, RadarOnline.com has learned his business partners and others are kicking him to the curb.

HBO issued a statement that C.K., 50, would “no longer be participating” in the benefit concert, “Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs,” and that it was removing C.K.’s past projects from its On Demand services.

FX, home to C.K.’s self-titled show, took a more reserved approach.

“We are obviously very troubled by the allegations about Louis C.K. published in The New York Times today,” a written statement from the company reads. “The network has received no allegations of misconduct by Louis C.K. related to any of our 5 shows produced together over the past 8 years.”

“FX Networks and FXP take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace. That said, the matter is currently under review.”

And the small distribution company that is handling the release of C.K.'s new film I Love You, Daddy says it is reviewing the situation and giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the picture. They also decided to cancel the movie’s premiere, which was scheduled for Thursday night in New York.

As Radar reported, C.K. faces explosive charges of sexual misconduct. He has yet to comment on the allegations.
