Andy Dick Fired From Film After Sexual Harassment Allegations

Two sources detailed Dick's inappropriate behavior towards four members of the production.

Andy Dick has been dropped from Raising Buchanan, an independent feature film, following accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct on set. The Hollywood Reporter spoke to two sources who detailed his inappropriate behavior, including groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing or licking, and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production.

Dick confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he was let go from his role in the film, but he denied the groping claims. He did say that it’s possible he licked people and “confirmed that he did make advances on others.”

Dick has a well-documented history of intentionally offensive behavior, but the claims against him have gained more currency in the wake of sexual assault allegation against figures like Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, and more.

THR reports that, originally, Dick made light of the situation, saying “My middle name is ‘misconduct.’ They know what they signed up for.” But then, he followed up by denying that he ever groped anyone on set. He has a history of exposing his genitals in public and on stage, but told THR, “I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore.”

Dick’s role in the movie was already on thin ice, because he had missed his first day of scheduled filming, hadn’t memorized his lines, and had brought a friend who fell asleep and snored loudly during filming. He did say he may have kissed someone on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them, because “that’s his thing.” He also said, “Of course I’m going to proposition people. I’m single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date. They can just say no, and they probably did and then I was done,” according to THR.
