Five Women Accuse Comedian Louis CK of Sexual Misconduct

NEW YORK – Five women have accused US comedian Louis CK of sexual misconduct, according to a New York Times report published on Thursday.

Two of the women, comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, told the newspaper that CK had undressed and masturbated in front of them after inviting them to his hotel room following a performance in 2002.

Another comic, Abby Schachner, told the newspaper that she could hear Louis CK masturbating during a telephone conversation in 2003, while comedian Rebecca Corry said she had declined after CK had asked if he could expose himself to her during the production of a television pilot in 2005.

A fifth woman, who remained anonymous, also described a similar incident with the comedian during production of the “Chris Rock Show” when CK was a head writer and producer there.

CK cancelled both the premiere of his new film “I Love You, Daddy” and a scheduled appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Thursday.

The accusations against Louis CK are the latest in a wave of complaints of sexual harassment against senior male figures in the US entertainment industry.

Last month, producer Harvey Weinstein was accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment and abuse, allegations which led to his expulsion from the organizations behind the Oscars and the Emmys, as well as being fired from his production company.

Kevin Spacey, star of popular Netflix television show “House of Cards,” was accused of making unwanted sexual advances by actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14 and Spacey was 26.

Spacey has been fired by Netflix and production of the show has been suspended.
