Louis C.K.'s Voice Got Dubbed Out Of 'Gravity Falls'

Louis C.K. has been scrubbed out of the animated series, Gravity Falls.

Following the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against the comedian, Disney Channel redubbed C.K.'s lines in future broadcasts of the series. To recall, the Louie creator and star voiced The Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity, a disembodied head with an arm growing out of it, in the episode "Weirdmageddon: Part 1," which aired in 2015.

Redubbed

"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 spokesperson for Disney Channel explained on a statement. "Series creator and executive producer Alex Hirsch is now credited as playing the character."

In the past month, many of C.K.'s television appearances were canceled because of the allegations and his subsequent admission. His new movie with Chloe Moretz, I Love You, Daddy, was abruptly canceled a few hours before it was set to premiere in New York. The comedian was also uninvited from Jon Stewart's Night of Too Many Stars, a fundraising show. C.K.'s previous shows will no longer air on HBO, Netflix said it will no longer continue with plans for a stand-up special, and FX has severed ties with the actor and his production company.

The screenwriter is not the first prominent celebrity to be outcast from Hollywood. After accusations against Kevin Spacey hit the news outlets, he was also removed from upcoming projects. His award-winning Netflix Original series, House of Cards, will no longer star Frank Underwood and will focus on Claire played by Robin Wright instead.

Spacey, a two-time Academy Award winner, was also removed from the upcoming movie All the Money in the World by Ridley Scott. He was replaced by Christopher Plummer.

In a similar move, Hulu edited Chris Brown out of the 30 Rock episode "Goodbye My Friend" when all seven seasons of the comedy series was acquired by the streaming service.

Louis C.K.'s Sexual Misconduct

Last month, The New York Times published the exposé that revealed C.K.'s sexual misconduct. Five women came forward and shared their horror stories involving the comedian. In one instance, C.K. took off his clothes and masturbated in front of comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov.

"These stories are true," C.K. said on a statement. "I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen."
