Celebrities react to Louis C.K. sexual harassment allegations

On Thursday, the New York Times broke a story where five women alleged Louis C.K. had, in some way or another, forcibly masturbated in front of them without their consent. And the 50-year-old comedian’s fall from grace has been swift.

HBO has cut all ties from the comedian; FX — which has aired his hit show, “Louie,” is currently “reviewing the matter;” and the Orchard, responsible for distributing C.K.’s controversial upcoming film “I Love You, Daddy,” has shelved the movie. C.K.’s co-stars are distancing themselves, too.

Charlie Day, perhaps known best for his work on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and the “Horrible Bosses” movies, provided a statement to the Los Angeles Times, saying he was shocked to hear the accusations. “I was as appalled as everyone to read the allegations made in the New York Times,” he said. “I do not condone sexual misconduct and, in light of the allegations, will not be promoting the movie further.”

Chloe Grace Moretz, who also stars in the film, pulled out of promotion two weeks ago — because, as her publicist tells The Times, “she was made aware of numerous possible accusations.”

They aren’t the only celebrities reacting to C.K.’s alleged behavior. Here are some of the celebrities and comedians — who have worked or otherwise interacted with C.K. — who have taken to Twitter to comment on the New York Times exposé.
