RELATED VIDEO: HBO Cuts Ties With Louis C.K.
LOS GATOS (CBS SF/AP) – Netflix has scrapped plans for an upcoming Louis C.K. stand up special in light of five women’s allegations of sexual misconduct against the comedian.
The streaming service says it finds the allegations in the story published in the New York Times on Thursday “disturbing.”
Netflix on Friday cited “unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues” as the reason for not producing the special. It would have been the network’s second stand up special with C.K.
Numerous projects have been shelved due to the accusations, including release of C.K.’s feature film “I Love You, Daddy,” and HBO has removed his work from its on demand video streaming service.
C.K. has not commented publicly on the allegations.
