After publishing the damaging investigation against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein - alleging several decades of sexual abuse - The New York Times released an article just moments ago involving Louis C.K., with similar charges, that have already sent ripples throughout the entertainment community.

The comedian's newest film, I Love You, Daddy, had been set to premiere tonight in New York City and has since been abandoned as producers and financiers await the fallout from the Times piece. Additionally, his appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has also been cancelled.

There is already an established track record against C.K. as it relates to sexual misconduct. In 2015, Gawker published an article where several female comics came forward against him. In the wake of the Bill Cosby scandal, Roseanne Barr named C.K. outright.

The new reporting details accounts by five different women, Dana Min Goodman, Julia Wolov, Abby Schachner, Rebecca Corry, and an anonymous fifth source who all allege that C.K. asked to, or actually masturbated in front of them.

According to the report, "After being contacted for an interview this week about the on-the-record accusations of sexual misconduct — encounters that took place over a decade ago — Louis C.K.’s publicist, Lewis Kay, said the comedian would not respond. 'Louis is not going to answer any questions,' Mr. Kay wrote in an email Tuesday night."

Although the world of comedy can be raunchy and profane, Wolov commented, "I think the line gets crossed when you take all your clothes off and start masturbating."
