After multiple Sexual Harassment claims were submitted, comedian and actor Andy Dick was fired Monday from his small part in the Independent Film "Raising Buchanan." Members of the staff claimed that, among other behaviors, Dick arrived late and did not know his lines, brought a friend who disrupted filming, propositioned multiple people for sex, and appeared to be intoxicated.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter Dick denied sexually assaulting anyone, but admitted he may have propositioned people, saying “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.” He also said he may have licked someone on the cheek, but defended himself by saying it is a characteristic behavior of his and not sexual in nature.

Dick also admitted to overdosing on his medication and Xanax, which he said left him “loopy” on set.

The actor said he also upset people by bringing up Harvey Weinstein, the media mogul who made headlines when the New York Times revealed that he had a long history of sexually assaulting women in the film industry. Since the piece’s publication, women and men have publicized allegations against multiple producers, actors, and executives.

The controversial comedian was also fired from the film "Vampire Dad" on Oct. 18 for similar complaints about sexual harassment, according to the Hollywood Reporter. He was fired within a few hours of arriving on set, producer Kathryn Moseley claimed, because of “flagrant” inappropriate behavior and “inappropriate contact” with multiple members of the film crew.

Moseley said he requested alcohol multiple times and began acting up almost immediately.

Moseley said the film crew of "Vampire Dad" was more than 70 percent women. “It's important to draw a line and say that this is not okay for anyone. As a production company, we support everyone on set and we want to provide a good, positive work environment,” she said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Widespread problem

Multiple famous Hollywood names have been exposed on movie streaming websites as abusers since the Weinstein scandal broke. Earlier this week, actor Anthony Rapp went public with the story that when he was 14, actor Kevin Spacey attempted to assault him in a bedroom at a party. Since then, multiple men have come forward with accusations against Spacey, who raised public ire by responding to the accusations by coming out as gay, according to Digg.

Victims speak out

Half a dozen actresses have accused Brett Ratner, the producer of the “Rush Hour” series, of sexual harassment, alleging that he masturbated in front of them, harassed them or raped them, according to TooFab.

At least 26 well-known men have been accused of sexual assault since Weinstein’s assaults were revealed, according to FastCompany.
