Another Jew drives another nail into Hollywood’s coffin. Our job is to make sure that everyone understands that what is taking place is primarily a Jewish meltdown.
Add Louis C.K. to the list of Hollywood figures being accused of sexual misconduct. In a New York Times expose published Thursday (Nov. 9), five women have stepped forward to describe encounters with the popular comedian and TV producer that paint a portrait of a man with a habit of masturbating in front of female associates. Their stories also would appear to confirm rumors that have persisted for years about the comedian.
Lewis Kay, a publicist for Louis C.K., declined to answer any questions about the story when reached by the Times.
Among the incidents described in the piece is one in which the comedy duo of Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov say that, while hanging out with Louis C.K. in a hotel room after a 2002 show, he asked if he could take out his penis. They thought it was a joke — “and then he really did it,” Goodman is quoted as saying. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”
Another comedian, Abby Schachner, said that she called Louis C.K. in 2003 to invite him to one of her shows. While talking to him on the phone, she could hear him masturbating, she said.
And in 2005, Rebecca Corry, who was preparing to appear with Louis C.K. on a television pilot, said he asked if he could masturbate in front of her. She declined.
A fifth woman, who asked not to be named, said he repeatedly asked her if he could masturbate in front of her while the two were working on “The Chris Rock Show” in the late 1990s. She went along with the request, but quickly regretted it. “It was something that I knew was wrong,” she said.
Mississippi comedian Tig Notaro, whose first comedy album was released by Louis C.K., said she heard of his reputation from other women and suggested it’s not exactly a secret in the comedy world. “Sadly, I’ve come to learn that Louis C.K.’s victims are not only real,” she told The Times, “but many are actual friends of mine within the comedy community.”
That echoes recent high-profile revelations about Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, both of whom stand accused of engaging in years of sexual misconduct that many inside the industry were aware of but said nothing about.
That culture of silence would appear to be changing as a number of other Hollywood figures have been accused of patterns of sexual misconduct since the Weinstein story broke in early October — also in a New York Times story — and opened the floodgates for others to speak out about the industry’s dirty little secret.
Word that an unflattering story about Louis C.K. was on the verge of breaking began spreading earlier Thursday when the New York premiere of his forthcoming movie — titled “I Love You, Daddy,” which he directed — was abruptly cancelled hours before it was to take place. The comedian also cancelled a planned appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Indie distributor The Orchard said it still plans to go ahead with the release of “I Love You, Daddy,” which — interestingly — is a dark comedy set at the intersection of sex and showbiz. In it, Louis C.K. plays a successful TV writer and producer who must figure out a way to prevent his teenage daughter from becoming romantically involved with a lecherous filmmaker who is more than 50 years older than her.
