Published Dec 22, 2017Adding to the ever-growing fallout surrounding Louis C.K., Disney has now scrubbed the disgraced comedian from its animated series Gravity Falls.
Disney made the announcement today, The Hollywood Reporter points out, saying the family-friendly company has redubbed C.K.'s parts in the wake of the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against the comedian, which he admitted then to.
C.K. voiced "The Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity" in two Gravity Falls episodes: 2015's "Weirdmageddon: Part 1" and 2016's "Weirdmageddon: Part 3." His name has also now been removed from the show's credits.
"The role was rerecorded approximately one month ago and new versions of three episodes are now on the Disney XD schedule around the world," a Disney Channels spokesperson said. "Series creator and executive producer Alex Hirsch is now credited as playing the character."
The move by Disney follows similar decisions by Netflix, HBO, TBS and FX, who all cut ties with the comedian following the allegations. The release of his film I Love You, Daddy was also cancelled.
