Louis C.K. Returns to the Stage for First Stand-Up Set Since Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Nine months after Louis C.K. was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, the comedian reportedly returned to the stand-up stage on Sunday for a surprise set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

Club owner Noam Dworman told The New York Times that C.K., 50, took the stage for a 15-minute set around 11 p.m. local time, performing for a sold-out crowd of roughly 115 people.

The Louie star “was very relaxed,” and was dressed in a black V-neck T-shirt and gray pants, the outlet reported.

He did not mention the allegations against him, and instead worked his way through “typical Louis C.K. stuff” like racism, parades, and tips for waitresses. “It sounded just like he was trying to work out some new material,” Dworman explained to the Times. “Almost like any time of the last 10 years he would come in at the beginning of a new act.”

The audience greeted C.K. with a standing ovation, said Dworman to the Times — though one attendee has since called the club to object about the appearance, the owner recalled, wishing he had known in advance “so he could’ve decided whether to have been there or not.”

The New York Times published an article in November in which five women detailed their alleged experiences with C.K., including claims he masturbated in front of them.

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that while with C.K. in his hotel room after their show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in 2002, he “proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”

Comedian Rebecca Corry alleged that C.K. “asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me” while filming a TV pilot in 2005, and writer Abby Schachner alleged she heard him masturbating through the phone during a 2003 call. A fifth, anonymous woman alleged that while working on The Chris Rock Show in the late 1990s, C.K. masturbated while she sat with him in his office, and a co-worker corroborated her story to the Times.

C.K. responded with a lengthy statement in which he admitted that “these stories are true.”

He added, “The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them … I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen.”

Since then, FX severed ties with C.K., whose shows Louie and Better Things aired on the network. C.K. was dropped by all his reps, too, while Netflix cancelled an upcoming stand-up special and HBO cut all of his content from its library. Orchard also canceled the release of his film I Love You, Daddy — though C.K. bought the rights to the title back.

Photographer Seth Sabal Continues to Deny Sexual Misconduct Claims Alleged in The Boston Globe

STILL IN THE PICTURE: In response to last week’s Boston Globe article about alleged sexual misconduct by photographers, Seth Sabal again denied any wrongdoing via his attorney, Carlos M. Carvajal.
“He can unequivocally say that he never has taken any nude photos of an underage model, he never sexually harassed anyone and never forced anyone to do something they weren’t comfortable with. If anyone who felt uncomfortable with any requests that have been made, he does apologize. He never coerced, forced or in any way intimidated anyone to do anything against their will,” Carvajal said.
“But he recognizes that what’s going on is long in coming, and it’s not just in the world of fashion. This is something that’s going on globally in all industries. It is something that his wife [Yuliana], a longtime model, suffered some harassment throughout her career,” Carvajal said. “But it’s also important to recognize that it’s not just in the modeling agency or the fashion industry. And it’s also important to recognize that some people are being unjustly accused. But that should in no way, shape or form diminish the ability of the people who have suffered to have their moment for what is long in coming

Olivia Munn and Multiple Women Accuse Film Producer Brett Ratner of Sexual Misconduct

Movie producer Brett Ratner has been accused of multiple cases of sexual misconduct or harassment — including by actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge.

In an article published by the Los Angeles Times Wednesday, six women spoke out against the longtime Hollywood power player, 48, who directed the Rush Hour series and produced movies including Horrible Bosses and The Revenant.

In a statement to the L.A. Times, Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer vehemently disputed the specific allegations and said “no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”

Munn claims that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed film After the Sunset, he masturbated in front of her.

“He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,” Munn said. “And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.”

Munn said she let out a “startled scream” and raced out of the trailer. She said she immediately told the man who told her to go into the trailer. “It wasn’t a shock. It wasn’t surprise,” Munn recalled the man saying. “It was just, ‘Ugh, sorry about that.’ ”

Munn said she told her sister, Sara Potts, about the incident, who urged her to speak with a lawyer. Potts confirmed Munn’s account to the L.A. Times.

The actress said the attorney dissuaded her from going up against a powerful director.

“That did leave an impact on me,” Munn said. “How broken do women have to be before people listen?”

The actress wrote about the alleged incident in her 2010 collection of essays without naming Ratner. Later in 2010, Munn claims she saw Ratner at a party, where he reportedly bragged about ejaculating on magazine covers featuring her image.

“I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn told The Times.

“It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit,” she said. “You just hope that enough people believe the truth and for enough time to pass so that you can’t be connected to him anymore.”

Ratner “vehemently disputes” Munn’s claims, Singer told The Times.

Actress and model Natasha Henstridge claims that when she was 19, she was forced to perform oral sex on Ratner in his New York apartment after watching a movie with a group of friends. Henstridge alleges Ratner blocked the doorway when she tried to leave and began touching himself.

“He strong-armed me in a real way,” she said. “He physically forced himself on me. At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.”

Singer disputed the allegation to the L.A. Times, saying Ratner spent time with Henstridge but claiming the actress was “upset after learning my client had a girlfriend who he would not leave” for her.

Actresses Jaime Ray Newman and Katharine Towne claim Ratner made unwanted, aggressive advances to them on a plane and at a party, respectively. Singer disputed both accounts. 

Four people involved on the film Rush Hour 2 also came forward to describe a “sexually charged” work environment, and two background actresses said Ratner pursued them and offered them speaking roles. Singer disputed the claims, and James M. Freitag, an assistant director on the set, told The Times in a statement that “any complaints of any kind including sexual harassment would be immediately directed to my attention. There were no complaints reported to me whatsoever.”

Ratner, whose next project as a director is a Hugh Hefner biography starring Jared Leto, has been romantically linked in the past to stars including Mariah Carey and Lindsay Lohan.

ABC Suspends Production Of ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Over ‘Allegations Of Misconduct’

After only a week of filming, ABC has decided to suspend production of “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 4 in Sayulita, Mexico, as the company investigates “allegations of misconduct.” 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. released a statement on the incident, saying:

We have become aware of allegations of misconduct on the set of “Bachelor in Paradise” in Mexico. We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations. Once the investigation is complete, we will take appropriate responsive action.

The show, which brings together contestants from previous seasons of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” to provide them with another shot at finding love, was slated for an Aug. 8 premiere. Now, it seems the series might not air at all.

TMZ reports that the situation allegedly involved contestants DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios, who were both well-known personalities from their respective appearances in the “Bachelor” franchise. The two were reportedly involved in some inappropriate, sexual activities in a swimming pool, according to sources who spoke with Jackson and TMZ. Still, there are varying accounts of what actually happened, which is why Warner Bros. launched a full investigation into the situation and sent the rest of the cast back to the U.S. 

Reality Steve (Steve Carbone), a blogger known for his “Bachelor” spoilers, posted a photo of the cast at the Puerto Vallarta airport on Sunday, writing on Twitter that they were apparently being flown to Houston. Jackson and Olympios are not pictured in the group photo. 

The new season was set to feature Bachelor Nation favorites, including Raven Gates, Amanda Stanton, Alexis Waters, Taylor Nolan, Robby Hayes, Ben Zorn, Jasmine Goode, Vinny Ventiera and Alex Woytkiw.

HuffPost has reached out to ABC, as well as Jackson and Olympios, for an update on the suspension and situation.
