Fred Willard Fired by PBS for Doing Dirty Old Man Things (Allegedly)

PBS doesn’t believe in Matthew’s theory that you only live once (YOLO).

The network fired Fred Willard on Thursday as a narrator following his arrest at an adult theater where he was busted for committing a lewd act.

“Given the unfortunate news reported today, effective immediately, Fred Willard no longer will be involved with the Market Warriors series,” PBS said in a statement.

Willard’s camp fired back, denying that the 72-year-old was doing anything inappropriate.

“With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law,” Willard’s lawyer, Paul Takakjian, told TMZ.com.
