Several at the convention had reported earlier in the week Gary Busey was removed from the event last weekend after they reported he was groping women. And reported that another actor appearing there “helped have Busey thrown out.” @FOX29philly pic.twitter.com/AI0RfZPr5F— Steve Keeley (@KeeleyFox29) August 20, 2022
Busey was named as manning the signature booth alongside actors Ralph Macchio, Tom Skerritt, and Veronica Cartwright, according to the reports documented by Variety.
The convention issue is still being investigated. When PEOPLE asked the actor's representative for a response, neither they nor the Cherry Hill Police Department responded right away.
