Comedian Louis C.K. is now facing accusations by five different women of sexual misconduct in private.
According to a report from the New York Times, the comedian and actor has a habit of masturbating in front of women, regardless of whether they consented to the behavior or not.
In a story that broke Thursday, the comedian “proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating,” in front of two young female comedians, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov in his hotel room in 2002. They did not consent.
Also included in the report is an allegation from a woman named Abby Schachner that he once masturbated on a phone conversation with her in 2003.
The report indicates that C.K. has contacted a few of the women he allegedly masturbated in front of more recently, apologizing without specifically admitting what he did.
C.K. has made a career of poking fun at men, including himself, and taking popular liberal stances on things like feminism and transgenderism. In an April interview, he called President Trump a “gross, crook, dirty, lying sack of shit.”
He also previously compared Trump to Adolf Hitler.
This is not the first time such accusations have been reported. Rumors of C.K.’s habit of exposing himself in front of unwilling women have been swirling around the internet for years, but the New York Times’ story today is the first time they have been so publicly and officially reported.
Pending the release of the Times article, the premiere of his new movie “I Love You, Daddy” has been cancelled. (RELATED: This New Louis C.K. Movie Has Harvey Weinstein Written All Over It)
