warning: graphic content
Louis C.K. has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by five separate women, including several fellow commedians.
According to an investigative article in the New York Times, Dana Min Goodman, Abby Schachner, Julia Wolov, Rebecca Corry and one anonymous victim each allege C.K. masturbated in front of them or attempted to without their consent.
Goodman and Wolov said they were "paralysed" when C.K invited them to his Colorado hotel room in 2002 and "proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating."
Meanwhile Corry claims C.K. asked to masturbate in front of her in 2005 on the set of a television pilot produced by Courteney Cox and David Arquette.

Corry goes on to say she reminded him that he had a daughter and a pregnant wife at the time. "His face got red... and he told me he had issues."

I was told to delete a tweet I wrote about Louis CK abusing women before I applied to a high-profile comedy job because the people conducting the hiring process might not like it. These women who have spoken up are brave, and we owe them so much.https://t.co/yECc41l1Uz

this is a man who built his career off "jokes" like: "How do women still go out with guys, when you consider the fact that there is no greater threat to women than men?" Meanwhile, he was masturbating in front of female comics without their consent.
