Actor Fired from Movie Set for Alleged Sexual Harassment, Abuse

Actor Fired from Movie Set for Alleged Sexual Harassment, Abuse”

Andy Dick has learned this the hard way as he has just been fired from the independent movie Raising Buchanan oversexual harassment claims.

Dick's issues on the set of the film that revolves around the missing corpse of former U.S. President James Buchanan reportedly began before he stepped in front of a camera, according to THR.

But, he added, "I didn't grope anybody".

As for the allegations that ultimately got him fired from Raising Buchanan, Dick said, "I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them".

The controversial actor has an established history of inappropriate behavior - often intended for comic effect - including exposing himself and licking people, as he did Carrie Fisher at a Comedy Central Roast. "It's me being amusing". He told THR that he did make advances and may have licked people, but denied getting inappropriately handsy. Dick wouldn't go into what he exactly said on set that could have offended.

"I don't know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date", Dick continued.

As for propositioning people, the comedian said, "Of course I'm going to proposition people".

The actor - perhaps best known for roles in the 90s TV series NewsRadio, his own 2007 MTV talk show, and in films like Road Trip - has always been as famous for his outlandish behavior and run-ins with the law as for his film and television work. A Vice profile, published a year ago, opened with this sentence: "Gropings, genital exposures, grand theft: Andy Dick's litany of offenses to society is long and egregious".

One of THR's sources also doubted Dick's sobriety on set. Although he outright denies groping anyone's genitals, he has no problem admitting to propositioning people on set, but defends the behavior saying he's single and looking for a date. "I don't know anymore", Dick said. I'm always trying to be amusing and trying to get a date.

He also claims that the man who was caught snoring on the set was his friend Paul Ryder, the bass player from the British band Happy Mondays. In the '70s, all the girlfriends I got was by kissing and licking their cheek. "There were attractive women and handsome guys on the set". I flirt with them.

Dick promised to retire if more accusations of sexual harassment are lodged against him. "They are the ones that took it south". I don't know anymore.There were attractive women and lovely guys on the set. "We have an agreement".
