Louis C.K. is being dealt a series of blows in the wake of his sexual harassment scandal, Netflix has killed an upcoming comedy special and the producer of his new movie has scrapped its release.

In a statement to Deadline, Netflix says, “The allegations made by several women in The New York Times about Louis C.K.’s behavior are disturbing.  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.”

It’s the second major hit the embattled comedian has received after five women came forward to the New York Times and detailed disturbing incidents of sexual misconduct.

Shortly after the story broke, the producer of Louis’ new movie, “I Love You Daddy,” said they would not be moving forward with the project.

Louis has not commented on the allegations, but his rep said he would be releasing a statement soon.
