There is nothing better than watching a perverted liberal sleaze-bag get exactly what’s coming to him. Notorious sexual predator and former liberal icon Harvey Weinstein was dining out on Tuesday night with his “sober coach.” Accounts differ as to what exactly happened next, but from the video just released by TMZ, it’s obvious that Weinstein got a couple of good slaps to the face.
Check it out, per TMZ:
Harvey Weinstein was on the receiving end of 2 backhanded slaps to the face… that’s what the newly-obtained video shows.
TMZ broke the story… Weinstein was dining Tuesday night at Elements restaurant in Scottsdale when a guy named Steve approached him and asked for a photo. Steve tells TMZ Weinstein was belligerent and said no, while a restaurant manager says Weinstein was “sweet” and politely declined.
Steve and Weinstein shook hands and sat down, but this video shows what happened when they were both leaving the restaurant around 9 PM. Although the restaurant manager says Steve’s hands never landed on Weinstein’s face, you clearly see and hear Steve make contact twice, as he calls Weinstein “a piece of s***.”
Steve told us he’d had “quite a bit to drink,” and instructed his friend to record video as he walked up to Weinstein.
Here’s the backstory from USA Today:
Since The New York Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment and assault by producer Harvey Weinstein early last month, dozens of women have come forward with similar claims against the movie mogul.
Eighty-four women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate to criminal behavior ranging from requests for massages to intimidating sexual advances to rape. Weinstein has denied the allegations.
“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” Weinstein spokeswoman Holly Baird told USA TODAY in a statement.
After leaving Miramax, Weinstein and his brother Bob founded The Weinstein Company. He was co-chairman, alongside his brother, from 2005 to 2017. In October 2017, following sexual abuse allegations against Weinstein, he was dismissed from his company and expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
By October of 2017, over 80 women had made allegations against Weinstein. The allegations triggered the “#MeToo” social media campaign and the subsequent dismissals of powerful men around the world, called the “Weinstein effect”.
The #MeToo hashtag campaign has encouraged individuals to share their suppressed stories of sexual misconduct. This has led to a cascade of allegations across multiple industries, bringing about the swift ousters of many men in positions of power both in the United States and abroad.
