In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, it seems that more of Hollywood's elite are being exposed for their past crimes that were meant to stay covered up. Andy Dick, 51, has now been accused of sexual misconduct on set and was reportedly fired from a movie.

Dick is known for his controversial comedy stand-ups and overstepping his boundaries. In 2005, while giving a live performance, he stripped down his pants and exposed his genitals to the audience. In 2006, during the Comedy Central Roast for William Shatner, Dick licked the faces of Farrah Fawcett, Carrie Fisher, and Patton Oswalt. He also bit Mandy Stadtmiller's hand. In 2007, he was removed from the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live after groping the future first daughter, Ivanka Trump.

Now, it has been reported that Dick was recently fired from the independent film, Raising Buchanan, after he allegedly groped, and licked four of the members on set. The accusers have not been identified as cast mates of Dick's or members of the production crew.

The Ben Stiller Show star has already denied the allegations made against him.

"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," Dick stated.

"I didn't grab anybody's genitals. 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," he added.

Andy has also struggled in the with sobriety, having checked himself into rehab over 20 times in the past.

The movie, Raising Buchanan, stars Rene Auberjonois, Amanda Melby, Shannon Whirry and M. Emmet Walsh. The film follows the story a young woman who steals the corpse of deceased president, James Buchanan, for a ransom. The film's stars and production team have all declined to comment at this time.

Dick now joins Weinstein, Director James Toback, and others who have been accused of sexually abusing or harassing women on set. The allegations began back in September after an expose was written about Weinstein, who has since been accused by actresses such as, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Lupita N'yongo. Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair have both spoken against director James Toback.

The former Reality Bites star has confirmed that this will not happen again.

"I won't do it anymore. I won't lick anyone's face anymore. We have an agreement."
