Film distribution company, The Orchard, has dropped Louis C.K.’s movie amid the sleazy comedian’s sexual assault scandal.
After a string of women told The New York Times they had been sexually assaulted by the star, C.K. cancelled his film premiere, and was axed by HBO.
FX also said they were reviewing the allegations and would take all the necessary measures to protect their employees once the truth was uncovered.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Orchard recently shared a statement saying they would “not be moving forward with the release” of C.K.’s movie I Love You Daddy. The secret film was set to premiere on November 17.
Before C.K. was accused of sexual misconduct, his movie had already received much controversy, as the storyline involved a a 17-year-old (Chloe Grace Moretz) falling for a lecherous 68-year-old filmmaker. There was also dialogue relating to child pornography and even racism.
As Radar readers know, five women came forward earlier this month to accuse the Louie star of having masturbated in front of them – against their will.
While various individuals in the comedy world confirmed the alleged victims’ allegations, Louis C.K. refused to comment on the Times’ story.
