Andy Dick Fired For Sexual Harassment; Claims He Might Be Unaware Of Rules For Proper Behavior

So comedian Andy Dick is another of those Hollywood “open secrets” (as documented in this VICE article): “Gropings, genital exposures, grand theft: Andy Dick’s litany of offenses to society is long and egregious.”

Most recently, he has been fired from the independent film Raising Buchanan after claims that he acted sexually inappropriately on the set—claims Dick denied in a rambling Hollywood Reporter interview.

Here are some snippets from that interview:

“People are so sensitive.”

“I didn’t grope anybody. I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That’s my thing—I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people.”

“Of course I’m going to proposition people. I’m single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date.”

“I overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy (on set). That didn’t make me rape people. I really don’t get it. I’m always trying to be funny and trying to get a date.”

“I don’t know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date. 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.”

I guess some people just can’t take a joke.
