Louis C.K. Has Been Dropped By His Team And FX (And Pamela Adlon Released A Statement)

Widely admired” comedian Louis C.K.’s (turns out he was actually jacking off to how awesome he thought he was) recent admission to beating off in front of five women who hadn’t requested such a service has pretty much lowered his career’s coffin into the ground. The Los Angeles Times reports that his manager, publicist, and the FX network (where a lot of Louis’ projects lived) have parted ways with him. He’s also been dropped from The Secret Life of Pets 2. Admiration is short-lived when you’re outed as a creepster.

In a statement yesterday, Louis confirmed the New York Times’ report claiming he had sexually harassed and visually assaulted five women (three comedians, a writer, and an unnamed woman who had worked on Chris Rock’s old show with him). No-Longer Lucky Louis has now found himself without a professional support system. His management company, 3 Arts, has “terminated” their relationship and said they are doing an internal review to see if Louis harassed any of their staff members.

Louis had a manager named Lewis. Lewis is probably going to visit the courthouse this week to change his first name to something that sounds a little less like his former client’s.

(Is that Mr. Roper from Three’s Company? Please don’t drag his good name into this.)

FX went from being very troubledto “yeah, no, fuck that guy.” They also offered Louis some advice.

“Today, FX Networks and FX Productions are ending our association with Louis C.K. We are cancelling the overall deal between FX Productions and his production company, Pig Newton. He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him – “Better Things,” “Baskets,” “One Mississippi” and “The Cops.”

However, now is not the time for him to make television shows. Now is the time for him to honestly address the women who have come forth to speak about their painful experiences, a process which he began today with his public statement.

He could start off with, you know, an actual apology to them. That’s what an admired/admired/widely admired guy would do. Actress/writer/director (and, most importantly, Grease 2 cast member) Pamela Adlon has a longtime working relationship with Louis She was his wife in Lucky Louis on HBO, made frequent guest appearances on Louis on FX (in which Louis’ character once tried to drag her character into a bedroom for sex and kissed her sans consent), and he produces her current show, Better Things. In a statement via People, it’s obvious that she’s had better DAYS.

“Hi. I’m here. I have to say something. It’s so important. My family and I are devastated and in shock after the admission of abhorrent behavior by my friend and partner, Louis C.K.

“I feel deep sorrow and empathy for the women who have come forward. I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family. I am processing and grieving and hope to say more as soon as I am able.”

Louis, Spacey, and Weinstein (and seemingly 3 jillion other Hollywood types) would make for a helluva theatrical creep rehab group. Speaking of, do you think Robin Wright will release a “drop the lifeboats cuz’ I’m not going down with this ship” statement about President Crotch-Grabber (the gay one) anytime soon?

  1. It’s 50/50 if you’re asking me. For every mysogynist there is a man-hating bitch out there. The hard part is to bring them together so the rest of humanity can live in peace.

  2. He sounds like an obnoxious kid in a special ed class. Why bother responding to the brainless fuck faced freak?

  3. I learned in my psychology class that most flashers prefer to expose themselves to little kids or old ladies because it’s more shocking to them. I guess that would fall into the same category as intimidation, like in LCK’s case. Sick.

  4. Brilliant!

  5. Definitely a power thing. They get turned on by humiliating someone. And they count on that humiliation to keep you from saying anything.

  6. The name suits him.

  7. Apparently you care about what others think on some level, otherwise you wouldn’t be trolling other posters.

  8. I remember Pamela as the friend of Mary Stuart Mastersin in Bed of Roses (my guilty pleasure/ugly-cry-while-eating-ice-cream-go-to-chick-flick). Ugh….. and now that I think of it… the premise of that movie is Christian Slater kinda stalks MSM until she gives in 😕 But then they end up in real, consensual love, so ultimately it’s ok? Oy. Everything’s terrible.

  9. Aw, is this the hubby’s bathhouse weekend?

  10. I feel so bad for all of the people that no longer have jobs because of C.K.’s sinking ship. Imagine suddenly becoming unemployed because your boss is finally forced to face the music. People’s actions really do have a far reaching ripple effect. Fuck him. He’s not done fucking people.

  11. Pig Newton is from one of his stand-ups… his toddler daughter called fig newtons ‘pig newtons’ and would refuse to call the the correct name. And he’s find himself arguing with his young daughter about it. So… sorry, no self awareness there.

  12. Snoot’s rapid-cycling between shitposting, whacking it and weeping at their Louis shrine. I’m sure this must be a tough time for Snoot.

  13. futurenicole

    Nope! Read the reports. Also, Louis, I thought you said you were gonna take some time off..

  14. It is not a shield. The daughters we have been given deserve our protection.

  15. It’s almost as if being hurt by rejection is a normal part of the human experience unbound by gender. Weird.

  16. Oh, sweetie.

  17. Nut up, princess.
    ETA: Though that does explain your anger at women, sorry your mom broke up with you.

  18. You should let me. I’m usually fumbling my way to on target.

  19. When he had his HBO sitcom with Adlon as his wife it was an odd program, as much cringe as comedy. One time he got away with a little full frontal (little referencing the amount of time you get a glimpse, the small relation the flash had to the plot and the actual size of Lil’ Louis) and I wondered for the longest time why he felt the need to expose himself like that? Now I know. And here I am, another casualty of Louis C. K. exhibitionism.

  20. Sadism, not the fun kind.

  21. Yeah women always treat men so well

  22. Please. They’ve all been affected by it and feared for their careers if they divulged it. Read up on the women and you’ll see. Maybe not as bad as being raped or molested, but it changed them all nonetheless. It’s bad enough behavior that he’s losing his projects, movies, etc., so it sure isn’t excusable.

  23. Literarylioness

    When are the David Duchovny’s exploits will see the light of day. Ted Casablanca use to do blinds on his stuff forever.

  24. Literarylioness

    For me the women are word part, because they allowed it to go on to further their own careers. Meryl Streep knew and defends Polanski!

  25. playa's dire twat

    How witty. I can see why you’re such a fan of Ck.
