JUST LIKE THAT: Yet Another Trump-Hating Celebrity’s Career is Ended!
Hollywood Trump-haters are falling like flies these days. Talk about karma.
America’s celebrity elite are all turning on one another, just as they were trying to come together in some silly “resistance” to President Trump.
One of the more outspoken A-listers bashing Trump was comedian Louis C.K.
The guy is funny, no question about it. But his repeated attacks on Trump were disingenuous and contrary to the Democratic spirit of America.
And you know what else isn’t funny?
That’s actually what brought Louis C.K. down.
Amid the Harvey Weinstein firestorm, numerous reports are coming in that Louis C.K. sexually harassed at least five women.
And now, he’s paying the price. HBO has dropped Louis C.K. from a big upcoming broadcast, and is pulling all his previous content from the network.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
The premium cable network is dropping the comic from Night of Too Many Stars, its upcoming autism special, and is also pulling the C.K.’s previous standup specials and series from its on-demand services. The move comes after the Louie star was accused of sexual harassment by five different women in The New York Times on Thursday who claimed C.K. either masturbated in front of them or asked them permission to do so.
“Louis C.K. will no longer be participating in the Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs, which will be presented live on HBO on November 18,” HBO said in a statement. “In addition, HBO is removing Louis C.K.’s past projects from its On Demand services.” C.K.’s other HBO projects include the short-lived 2006 comedy series Lucky Louie, along with comedy specials One Night Stand, Shameless and Oh My God.
