He joked that people who work with him "know what they signed up for."

New sexual harassment allegations were brought against Andy Dick that resulted in him being dropped from the independent feature film "Raising Buchanan." 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 51-year-old actor was accused of inappropriate behavior on set, including groping people's genitals, unwanted kissing and licking and making sexual propositions to at least four members. It's unclear as to whether or not the victims were actors or crew members. 

Andy Dick said that though he denied the groping claims, he did say it was possible that he licked people. 

"I don't grope people anymore. I don't expose myself anymore," he said. "I do understand that the temperature in the world right now is delicate."

"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."

He also didn't deny that he made propositions to people. 

"Of course I'm going to proposition people," Dick said. "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 Dick, the problem is mostly his age and how he's unaware of the rules for professional behavior. 

"I don't know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date," he said. "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."

Dick joked about the situation, saying that his middle name is "misconduct" and people who agree to work with him should "know what they signed up for."

Claims were also made that Dick defended Harvey Weinstein on set when people brought up his allegations. The actor didn't deny this either but didn't say exactly what he said.

"They were so incensed by what I was saying," he said. "People are so sensitive."

When asked by TMZ on Thursday whether he had any comments on the Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner allegations, he said, "I know them all, all of them. I can't speak for them. I would get their back and say they probably were like me and just trying to get a date." He also threatened to grope and lick the face of the female reporter asking him questions. He also claimed he was "considering suicide every day."

While on set, one of the sources said they question Dick about this sobriety, which he struggled with most of his life but has reportedly been sober for the past two years.

He claimed to be sober but said he did mix up his medication. 

"I overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy [on set]. That didn't make me rape people," he said. "I really don't get it. I'm always trying to be funny and trying to get a date. I still don't have a date. I am on Tinder and I'm looking."

Dick's behavior has been under question in the past. He previously had a history of exposing himself in public and on stage. 

The actor said if he continues to run into any more allegations of misconduct, he will retire. 

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