"The Orchard will not be moving forward with the release of I Love You, Daddy", the company said in a brief statement Friday morning.

"These stories are true", he said in a statement emailed to Reuters and other news outlets. Among the early reviews, IndieWire's Eric Kohn called it "absorbing and intelligent", but the New York Post's Sara Stewart described it as "a little nausea-inducing".

"Gains were, however, capped as refiners such as Reliance Industries tumbled after oil prices gained overnight". At 10:19 am, 37 stocks on the Nifty 50 were trading in the positive zone.

Television network FX, a unit of 21st Century Fox (FOXA.O), also severed its ties with C.K.

After spending a reported $5M for the acquisition of Louis C.K.'s black and white comedy I Love You, Daddy, the pic's distributor The Orchard has scrapped plans to release the movie in the wake of yesterday's New York Times report whereby five women alleged sexual harassment by the Emmy-winning stand-up comedian.

On Thursday, the Times published a bombshell story that detailed five allegations of sexual misconduct against C.K.

According to the Post , Roem said on Tuesday night, as her margin of victory became clear, "Discrimination is a disqualifier". Andrea Jenkins this week became the first trans person of colour elected to any office in the USA , and people are overjoyed.

The release of the movie, starring, written and directed by Louis C.K., has been put on hold. "Louis's unprofessional and inappropriate behavior with female colleagues has led us to decide not to produce a second stand up special, as had been planned".

Time Warner Inc.'s HBO on Thursday dropped Szekely specials from its on-demand service and said he won't appear as planned on an upcoming November 18 program for charity.

"I'd be remiss to exclude the hurt that I've brought on people who I work with and have worked with", he said. "I will now step back and take a long time to listen". He earned praise as a feminist of sorts for his support of women writers Tig Notaro and Pamela Adlon.

Conte meanwhile will be crossing his fingers hoping that his men avoid injury during games with their respective national teams. The Times say Luiz confronted his manager on Thursday and questioned his tactics.

Tig Notaro said she felt "trapped" by her association with Louis C.K., who is listed as one of the executive producers on her series "One Mississippi".
