Actor Jeremy Piven also took to social media to once again declare his innocence of sexual misconduct, saying on Twitter he hopes the string of sexual harassment allegations will lead to "a constructive dialogue on these issues" but warned about "false accusations". When Louis C.K. invited them to hang out in his hotel room for a nightcap after their late-night show, they did not think twice.

Nonetheless, if Corry's recollection is accurate, somewhere out there is at least one woman who was shoved in a bathroom by Louis C.K. His intentions seemed collegial. The duo claim they first thought it was a joke before feeling paralyzed and holding each other. "And then he really did it", Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times.

"He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating", they told the Times.

The swift professional fallout came after the Times story identified four women by name, and a fifth anonymously, who shared similar stories of C.K. crossing the line into sexual misconduct in encounters with them dating back more than a decade. The woman, in her early 20s at the time, permitted his request but later came to believe it was an insidious abuse of his power in the comedy world.

Less than hour later, Kirkman issued more tweets to address "the men harassing" her since her initial comments, who say she had "recently implied" she did not believe the alleged victims and referenced the previously mentioned episode of her podcast. In addition to Louis C.K. 2017, which was his Netflix special, Hilarious, Live at the Comedy Store, Live at the Beacon Theater and Chewed Up are all now on Netflix. She recalled that she said no and reminded him that his wife was pregnant and that he was already a father.


"'I used to misread people back then.'"
She says he asked her over and over if he could masturbate in front of her, and eventually she agreed. She later relayed the events to the pilot's executive producers, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, who confirmed the complaint to the paper.

The black-and-white comedy, which pays homage to Woody Allen's "Manhattan", created controversy of its own before the allegations against Louis C.K. He plays a television producer whose 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moritz) becomes involved with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich).

So far, C.K. has declined to comment and his publicist, Lewis Kay, told TNYT he wouldn't answer any questions. Becky, who also manages a stable of prominent comedians like Amy Poehler and Kevin Hart, denied threatening any of the women.

On Thursday afternoon, The New York Times finally dropped a story confirming long-circulating rumors that comedian Louis C.K. has been accused by multiple female colleagues of masturbating in front of them without their consent. "As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation".
