#TBT: Andy Dick Got Pulled From Kimmel’s Show After He Kept Touching Ivanka Trump
Andy Dick became the latest target of the #MeToo movement this week, thanks to the confirmation that the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office is charging him with misdemeanor sexual battery for allegedly groping a woman. As this development evolved throughout the last few days, an old video of Dick has resurfaced online, and it shows him getting uncomfortably touchy with Ivanka Trump.
The actor and the first daughter-to-be sat together in 2007 when they both made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Things got awkward pretty quickly in the old footage since Dick decided to touch Trump’s leg while asking about the glitter she sprinkled on herself.
Trump swatted Dick’s hand away as she tried to keep things under control, and Kimmel reached over to try and help her out while telling Dick to stop.
“Donald Trump will kill both of us,” Kimmel joked.
As it were, Dick touched Ivanka again multiple times afterwards, which caused Kimmel to get up and separate the two. Eventually, Kimmel had enough of Dick and called on security to escort the actor from the show.
Kimmel spoke to Extra about the incident over a decade ago, saying Dick “always makes me a little uncomfortable” and seemed “a little bit out of it” at the time.
“She [Ivanka] came out… he wanted a big, wet kiss. It was time for Andy to go, so I escorted him out by his feet,” Kimmel said. “He’s not upset. He’s not apologetic. He’s just nutty.”
