The disappointing part was that Louis accepted the accusations and admitted that the claims were all true.He stated,
“At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But 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. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly."
After the revelation of the scandal, the comedian was fired from the movie The Secret Life of Pets 2 and his movie I Love You; Daddy has been canceled.
