By now you’ve heard the news that Jon Lovitz beat the living crap out of Andy Dick this weekend at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. Apparently the two had an altercation which ended with Lovitz slamming Dick’s head repeatedly into a bar until, according to the club’s owner, “blood started pouring out of (Dick’s) nose.”
It seems as though Lovitz has been harboring hostility toward Dick for quite some time. He blames Dick for the death of his close friend and fellow Saturday Night Live cast member Phil Hartman. Lovitz said that he came close to assaulting Dick at an earlier confrontation but held back because, “I don’t hit girls.”
Now, I’m not condoning Lovitz’s actions. In fact I abhor violence outside of a hockey rink or football field. But let’s be honest, we’ve all wanted to bash Andy Dick’s face in at one point or another. Lovitz just beat us all to the punch – quite literally.
