Fred Willard, beloved character actor who’s been in just about everything, was arrested on Wednesday night at Hollywood’s Tiki Theater, where he was taking in a porn flick with his penis out and in his hand (allegedly). While Willard was arrested for lewd behavior, he claims he was doing nothing illegal in the theater and is pursuing legal action. However, his employer, PBS, doesn’t care what went on inside the Tiki and has fired him anyway.

The show is “Market Warriors”, a spinoff of the network’s hugely successful “Antiques Roadshow”, and PBS officials sent around an email to their affiliates asking that they not air any completed episodes and advising that they would be adding new narration to the ones in progress.

“Given the unfortunate news reported today, effective immediately, Fred Willard no longer will be involved with the Market Warriors series,” a rep for the network announced.

Willard still has his ABC job as host of the show “Trust Us With Your Life”, however.

    He should have kept his “personal business” at home! PBS has every right to not want their image associated with him anymore. There is no shortage of available porn out there…if he chooses to touch himself in a public place, he has to face the consequences of that.

    WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. I HOPE IF IT GOES TO COURT AND MR. WILLARD WINS HE DROPS PBS!

  • elvis singleton

    I call on the powers from east to west, to bring some sunshine to this world at best, but to fire a man, for doing nothing illegal, in a private viewing booth, even, so now what we have the sex patrol roaming the streets, in hollwood, even. surely they have better ways to allocate the funds,like solving a t.v. crime show murder in less that 2 hours.

    Where did they say that theater is?

    FRED WILLARD IS AN ASS ANYWAY.

  • franksalot

    Fred willard you have nothing to worry about. The entertainment industry is forging a come back for Pewee Herman so you may have a chance here after all.

  • Mikie

    How appropriate, his next movie is titled…….

    wait for it……………………..

    the yank! hahahahahaha

    Dear Mr. Brauer (early responded above) I am in agreement with you. However, as I recall back in my “wordsmithing daze” and by using my trusted “1967ish Funkin-Wagnal” I concluded the proper words to discribe these makers of such a “terminal conclusion” based on a simple allegation would be referred to as “j e r k – o f f s” (the “jack” would be silent) – at least around my home area. OR -it may have been the fact that my step-uncle had his son named after him…… yep – two Jacks’- off on the ‘olthe family tree.

    Sidebar: I have been told by a trusted West-Coast source: Willard was simple at that location to do some backend or background research for a yet to be titled TV mini series – and that will clear things up for Billy post-haste!

    I think Fred Willard should not be fired for doing what people do every day. Like Hollywood is filled with so many upstanding moral kinds of people, especially in TV?????

  • cush47

    Good luck with your next fund raiser.

  • Carlton Colquitt

    So much for freedom of speech. Someone who protested the TS patdowns was exonerated by the judge when the fellow took off all his clothes so he could show that he had nothing to hide. Let’s get this straight: exposure is a form of speech. PBS has violated Willard’s civil rights. I won’t be making any more donations to PBS, thank you very much.

    Fred Willard is classic!!! NO ONE should be giving him smack for being human and rubbin one out in a Porn Theatre! It’s not like he was watching kids @ the mall playing and then busted “it” out. Who’s the idiot that makes the penis sighting and calls the cops to a porn theatre?! I dont particularly want to know how all my favorite celebrities get down and deal with urges but this seems to be an appropriate place. And PBS, you suck for firing Fred!

  • koa

    Why was he arrested in the theater? Aren’t lewd acts what ppl do in those establishments. I hate bad reporting that doesn’t tell whole story! It isnt as if he was walking down the street with his business out. PBS needs to grow the f*** up! And stop acting like they are above human nature.

  • Terri

    He was probably bored, waiting for John Travolta and Tom Cruse to show up to do a daisy chain in the back row. Hollywood is full of 5150 MDSO people; just walk down Hollywood Blvd. any day and observe the used Coney Island whitefish in the gutters and smell the piss and cum odor that pervades the city.

  • VMaxPilot

    PBS, the liberal elite. So much for tolerant and open minded. You leftist are so hypcritcal.

  • Alex Orr

    Perhaps he wsn’t doig anything’Immoral” At his age he was doing research to see if Viagara does work

  • Diane

    Hey, Jesse Thorn: child molestation is “private an unrelated to” Jerry Sandusky’s work, too.

    • Eat a Dick

      Diane youre an IDIOT. child molestation vs masturbation? GET REAL!!! DID HE HURT ANYONE ELSE? NO. DID HE ROB CHILDRENS lives of innocence? NO! And if you knew the facts anout Sandusky you’d know he took children to HIS PLACE OF WORK!!! And used he status as a football coach to lure children. So your comparison is far fetched, unrelated and just plain STUPID!!!
