FX, which aired C.K.'s show Louie, also said in a statement that while they received no allegations of misconduct, "FX Networks and FXP take all necessary actions to protect our employees and thoroughly investigate any allegations of misconduct within our workplace". It's a predicament for them.

I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work. I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with who's professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects now in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You, Daddy.

"I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want", he said.

The film and TV producer and star had refused to engage in the "rumors" linking him to sexual misconduct toward female comedians when interviewed by the Times back in September. "Thank you for reading".

Indie distributor The Orchard has now confirmed that it has pulled plans to release I Love You, Daddy, saying in a statement that it "will not be moving forward with the release". The shelving follows the cancellation of the movie's NY premiere, originally scheduled for Tuesday. The black-and-white pic that stars C.K., John Malkovich, Chloe Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Edie Falco, Charlie Day, Pamela Adlon, Helen Hunt and Ebonee Noel was a talker at the fest for its subject matter: CK plays Glen Topher and Moretz his daughter, who is seduced by a much older, notoriously creepy director and possible pedophile (Malkovich).

The premiere of Louis C.K.'s new film "I Love You, Daddy,"set for tonight in NY, has been scrapped at the last minute, Deadline has confirmed".

The film and comedy special weren't the only projects affected by the revelations.

The comedian's publicists initially said that they were not issuing a statement.

Chicago comedy duo Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, comedians Rebecca Corry, Abby Schachner and C.K. collaborator and onetime friend Tig Notaro all spoke to the Times for the story.

"You can't think about the audience when you're making the thing", C.K. said. (Reps for the premiere cited "unexpected circumstances.") C.K. was also booked to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night but canceled at the last minute, according to a source.
