The Good Place creator Mike Schur admits to knowing the rumors about Louis C.K. while the actor guest starred on Parks and Recreation.
Over the past few days, Louis C.K. has been accused of sexual harassment by five women in a New York Times report: all five women accused C.K. of masturbating or asking to masturbate in front of them.
This is the latest in a line of powerful men in Hollywood being accused of sexual harassment, and other creatives are distancing themselves from these men.
Mike Schur, the man behind The Office, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation and The Good Place has done just that, releasing an apology in which he admits that he was aware of the rumors of C.K.’s conduct when he appeared on Parks.
Schur says on Twitter:
I don't remember when I heard the rumors about him. But I'm sure it was before the last time he was on Parks and Rec. And that sucks. And I'm sorry.
