Just a month after the disturbing allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein were published in two detailed exposés from the New Yorker and the New York Times, another well-known man is being called out for alleged sexual misconduct by five women. The New York Times reports that Louis C.K. has been accused of sexual misconduct by Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Abby Schachner, Rebecca Corry, and a woman who wishes to remain anonymous. All five of the women accuse the comedian of masturbating or asking to masturbate in front of them, in most cases without their consent. Many of these instances took place in professional settings.
Earlier today, the Hollywood Reporter wrote that the New York premiere of Louis C.K.'s upcoming movie, I Love You, Daddy, was abruptly canceled due to "unexpected circumstances." A source told the outlet that this move was made in anticipation of the New York Times story. His planned appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled.
Refinery29 has reached out to Louis C.K., Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, and Rebecca Corry for comment.
Ahead are the five women and their accusations of sexual misconduct against Louis C.K.
