  • Comedian Louis CK accused of sexual misconduct by five women

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", Comedian Dana Min Goodman told The Times.

Comedian Rebecca Corry alleges that while she co-starred with him on a television pilot he asked if he could masturbate in front of her.

Actress Courteney Cox and her ex-husband, actor David Arquette - who were executive producers of the pilot - confirmed Corry's account of the story to the Times and agreed that the incident had taken place.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was terrible", Cox tells the Times.

In a statement to the Times, C.K.'s publicist Lewis Kay said the comedian would not answer any questions about the allegations.

The New York premiere of C.K.'s new film, I Love You, Daddy was abruptly cancelled just before the Times report was published.

Louis C.K. became the latest Hollywood celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct following a bombshell article Thursday.

Mugabe fires deputy Mnangagwa
Reacting to Monday's development, ZANU-PF's youth league said Grace Mugabe should replace Mnangagwa. He has been endorsed as his party's candidate for next year's election.

Louis C.K. has often joked about masturbation in his acts and his recent film, I Love You, Daddy, features scenes where a character pretends to masturbate in front of other characters. After their alleged encounters, two of the women say, C.K. privately apologized for his behavior. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed.

Several commenters on the article claimed the item was a now well-circulated rumor about Louis C.K. - though his friend, comedian Doug Stanhope, claimed to be at fault in a Facebook post. 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.

Rumors about Louis C.K.'s alleged misconduct have been circulating since 2012, but the accusers hadn't come forward until now.

"This guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard", she said in the now-deleted podcast.

After sharing what happened to friends in the entertainment community, they said they faced backlash.

Fellow comic Tig Notato has also spoken out about C.K. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be replacing him.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Notaro said she wanted to make clear in the episode that "you can be assaulted without even being touched".
