In another major blow for Louis CK, FX and 3 Arts Entertainment are severing ties with the comedian in the wake of the sexual harassment scandal detailed by the New York Times. APA, which represents CK for touring, also dropped the comedian on Friday from its client roster.
FX has been the comedian's primary TV home for the past eight years. FX's decision comes hours after the comedian acknowledged the truth of the reports of his sexual misconduct over the years.
CK is the latest public figure to face a swift fall from grace after allegations of sexual misconduct became public. Entertainment firms are under extreme pressure to take a hard line on sexually charged behavior that has been routinely condoned in Hollywood for decades. Bill O'Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Brett Ratner are among the high-profile figures who have seen business and creative partners disassociate themselves with stunning speed amid allegations of sexual assault and harassment.
