Andy Dick Fired for Sexually Harassing People on Set
Posted 2017/10/31 0 0
Dick was let go from the horror comedy 'Vampire Dad' due to "multiple, flagrant acts of improper conduct and inappropriate contact with several cast and crew members."
Veteran comedian Andy Dick has a longstanding and well-earned reputation for inappropriate behavior involving drugs, sex and generally acting the fool. And just recently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the 51-year-old star was dropped from the independent film Raising Buchanan following accusations of sexual harassment. After the initial report was posted, another producer reached out to THR to reveal the embattled actor was actually fired from another project, a vampire comedy called Vampire Dad, just a few days after he was fired from Raising Buchanan.
Dick denied the groping claims to the Hollywood Reporter but admitted the possibility that he licked people and confirmed that he did make advances toward others on the Raising Buchanan set. He also said that he “overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy”, the actor has been in and out of rehab north of a dozen times, but “that didn’t make me rape people.”
"I don't know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date,” Dick continued. “In the '70s, all the girlfriends I got was by kissing and licking their cheek. I don't know anymore. There were beautiful women and beautiful guys on the set. I flirt with them. I might kiss someone on the set and ask them to go to dinner. They are the ones that took it south."
The allegations come in the wake of numerous claims against Harvey Weinstein. After blistering reports from The New York Times and The New Yorker early this month that detailed decades of alleged sexual harassment and assault by the producer, dozens of women have come forward with similar claims against the movie mogul.
Since the scandal broke, claims against other men in Hollywood, including actor Kevin Spacey and writer/directer James Toback, have also been brought to light.
