The New York premiere of Louis C.K.’s upcoming film, I Love You, Daddy, set for Thursday, has been canceled. Reps for the premiere, due to take place at the Paris Theatre, cited “unexpected circumstances.”
The Hollywood Reporter says that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging. Additionally, Louis C.K.’s planned appearance on CBS’ The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled, with William H. Macy taking his place.
Roseanne Barr said in a 2016 interview with The Daily Beast that she was ‘speaking up’ about claims and stories she has heard from people over the years about incidents of abuse before naming one person in a bombshell of an allegation.
‘It’s Louis C.K., locking the door and masturbating in front of women comics and writers. I can’t tell you – I’ve heard so many stories. Not just him, but a lot of them,’ alleged Barr.
‘And it’s just par for the course. It’s just sh** women have to put up with.’
Barr later said that she believed Louis C.K. is ‘about to get busted.’
