CK's publicist Lewis Kay declined to comment on the allegations, telling the NY Times: "Louis is not going to answer any questions".

Another anonymous woman said C.K. masturbated in front of her in his office on The Chris Rock Show in the late 90's.

A Chicago comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, allege they were invited to Louis C.K.'s hotel room for a nightcap during a 2002 Colorado comedy festival.

In 2003, another comedian, Abby Schachner, called C.K.to invite him to one of her shows.

While promoting his upcoming film 'I Love You, Daddy, ' star, writer, and director Louis C.K. was asked about the allegations of sexual misconduct that have followed him for years.

Well, according to a huge New York Times article, various comedy personalities and celebrities have known of Louis C.K.'s antics for some time, but have stayed silent because of the potential damage that feared to their careers.

In 2005, C.K., now 50, allegedly asked if he could masturbate in front of the performer while walking to the set of a television pilot.

Louis C.K. has often joked about masturbation in his acts and his recent film, I Love You, Daddy, features scenes where a character pretends to masturbate in front of other characters.

"What happened to Rebecca on that set was terrible", Cox said in an email to the New York Times, adding that she felt "outrage and shock".

Alongside the accounts of three other women, these accusations paint a picture of a powerful man who was fully aware that he was a compulsive sexual harasser, routinely apologized for it, and yet failed to curb his behavior.

In August comic Tig Notaro talked to the Daily Beast about C.K., who serves as executive producer of her Amazon series, "One Mississippi".

Corry said that the comedian acknowledged the incident and said, "I used to misread people back then". Notaro said she is speaking out to support of those with the courage "to speak up against such a powerful figure.as well as the multitude of women still out there, not quite ready to share their nightmares".

It's not the first time there has been talk in the press about C.K. and inappropriate behavior.

Louis C.K. told Vulture in 2016 he didn't care about the Gawker piece. He was scheduled to be on the show on Thursday, but has been replaced by William H. Macy. During the phone conversation, Schnachner said that it was clear the comedian was masturbating.

After sharing what happened to friends in the entertainment community, they said they faced backlash.
