On Friday, comedian Louis C.K. confirmed allegations by five women who said he masturbated in front of them. "These stories are true," C.K. said in a statement. "At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay … [b]ut what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn't a question. It's a predicament for them." C.K.'s new film, I Love You, Daddy, was canceled by its distributor on Friday following the reports of his sexual misconduct. "The hardest regret to live with is what you've done to hurt someone else," C.K. said, adding: "I will now step back and take a long time to listen."
