HBO will pull Louis CK from services following masturbation claims

In a report published on Thursday in the New York Times, multiple women alleged inappropriate sexual behavior the comedian - including claiming he masturbated in front of them or while on the phone with them.

Earlier today, the NY premiere of C.K.'s new film I Love You, Daddy was scrapped amid rumors that the NYT report was imminent.

The release date for 'I Love You, Daddy, ' originally set for a November 17 release via The Orchard, is now in limbo as the distributor said today it was under "review" following the allegations.

Louis C.K., through his publicist, Lewis Kay, declined to respond to The Times regarding the allegations.

Hours after the story went live, HBO announced that it was severing ties with Louis C.K. for an upcoming special and that his previous projects-which include Lucky Louie and a comedy special titled Oh My God-would be taken off its services. The Times story alleges that C.K. had repeatedly asked women he encountered in work-related environments to watch him masturbate. "In addition, HBO is removing Louis C.K.'s past projects from its On Demand services". The premium network, in a statement Thursday said that C.K. would be pulled from their upcoming "Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs" concert which is being hosted by Jon Stewart.

The accusations against C.K. span from the late 1990s to 2005. "That said, the matter is now under review".
