The star also canceled a Friday appearance on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert'.

Variety reports that "I Love You, Daddy" distributor The Orchard canceled the New York Times premiere hours before it was set to take place Thursday evening at the Paris Theatre. Louis C.K. wrote, directed and stars in the black and white movie.

"I assume everyone who's called me a liar and a c-t for the past three years will be sending me an Edible Arrangement the second the Louis C.K. NYT story breaks", she wrote in one tweet. Tony Hernandez executive produced.

Beyond that, his new film is proving to be controversial due to its subject matter. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. surprised Toronto organizers and let them know the film existed.

"We're depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these lovely apartments and offices saying whatever they want", he told the outlet.


The film pays homage to the cinematic work of Woody Allen, particularly the 1979 film Manhattan.

The movie centers on a TV writer and producer who tries to intervene as his 17-year-old daughter falls in love with a 68-year-old man. You can't think about the audience when you're making the thing.

It is believed that I Love You, Daddy addresses not only sexual abuse accusations against Allen but against himself. "You'll be making something that you're like, 'Is this OK for you?'"

At 3 PM ET on Wednesday, C.K. still was listed as Colbert's first guest for tonight, with William H. Macy scheduled to be Colbert's guest Friday.
