- Netflix has confirmed that it will not be producing a previously planned standup special with comedian Louis C.K.
- The cancellation follows accusations of sexual misconduct from five women against the comedian in a New York Times report.
Netflix has dropped Louis C.K.’s upcoming standup special.
Following accusations of sexual misconduct against the comedian in a New York Times report on Thursday, Netflix has confirmed to Business Insider that it will not be moving forward with a previously planned second standup special.
“The allegations made by several women in The New York Times about Louis C.K.’s behavior are disturbing,” a Netflix spokesperson wrote to Business Insider on Friday morning. “Louis’s unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand up special, as had been planned.”
The decision from Netflix is part of a series of consequences for C.K.
The Orchard, the distribution company that bought C.K.’s film, “I Love You, Daddy,” canceled the theatrical release of the film, which was scheduled to open next weekend.
HBO also removed all of C.K.’s specials from its catalog, and removed him from the line up of the “Night of Too Many Stars” on November 18.
