Louis C.K. On Sexual Misconduct Claims: 'These Stories Are True'

Louis C.K. says the sexual misconduct allegations against him in a recent New York Times report are true.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, he said: "I have been remorseful of my actions. And I've tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I'm aware of the extent of the impact of my actions."

The statement came after the distributor of his upcoming film "I Love You, Daddy" said it would no longer release the film.

The film, which the comedian co-wrote and directed, was originally scheduled to hit U.S. theaters Nov. 17 for a limited run.

The Orchard said in a statement, "There is never a place for the behavior detailed in these allegations."

HBO responded to the accusations by saying C.K. would no longer appear in its upcoming autism special later this month. The network is also pulling all of his past projects from its on-demand services.

And on Friday, Netflix announced it would no longer move forward with the second stand-up special it had planned with the comedian. The first special dropped in April.
