Disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein was on the receiving end of a verbal and physical attack on Tuesday night, at one of his regular haunts, Elements restaurant in Scottsdale, USA.
It has been reported that a guy named Steve initially approached Weinstein to ask him for a photograph. When Weinstein said no, Steve got angry and began calling the fallen film producer “a piece of shit” while going to slap him across his face, twice.
The incident happened around 9pm, mid-US time.
The antagonist admitted to having been drunk, and even instructed his friend to record the video, which you can view for yourself, above.
Harvey Weinstein continues to deny allegations of sexual abuse toward a host of women in Hollywood, but maintains he is taking part in a kind of ‘recovery’ program. He has been seen dining at restaurants such as Elements, fairly down-trodden venues compared to the glitzy establishments he once used to attend.
Currently, in Hollywood, celebrities are promoting a followup to the #MeToo campaign with a movement being dubbed ‘Time’s Up’, with the aim of providing legal funding and assistance to people who have been on the receiving end of sexual abuse or harassment. Antonino Tati
