NY Times article on Louis CK coming…. NY premiere of “I Love You Daddy” canceled


UPDATE: The New York Times article on CK has been published.

The NYC premiere of Louis CK‘s new film, I Love You Daddy, which was to have happened tonight (11/9) has been canceled. The Hollywood Reporter reports that it was canceled in advance of a New York Times story on CK that is about to break, “in case it is damaging”:

The film has generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed.

Controversial dialogue is included throughout the film, including the use of the N-word by C.K.’s character and multiple jokes about child rape. C.K. previously defended the inappropriate content to THR. “We’re depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these beautiful apartments and offices saying whatever they want,” he said. “Folks say shit to each other. You can’t think about the audience when you’re making the thing. If you do, you’re not giving them something that came out of your gut. You’ll be making something that you’re like, ‘Is this OK for you?'”

Rumors and allegations about Louis CK’s sexual misconduct have circulated for years.
I Love You Daddy already screened at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival. This story is developing, stay tuned.
