Things are getting physical for disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein. The 65-year-old film producer got slapped at a restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona by an enraged citizen.
Weinstein is the center of one of the biggest sexual harassment scandals in Hollywood. A number of women broke their silence about the immoral deeds Weinstein had committed in the past. Weinstein since then have been the target, and just recently, someone decided to be physical with the producer.
Weinstein got slapped twice in the face by a man identified as Steve. Weinstein, who was with his sober coach, was leaving Elements Restaurant on a Tuesday night when Steve walked up to him and gave him two backhanded slaps in the face. According to TMZ, earlier before the confrontation, Steve asked Weinstein for a picture, but the movie producer refused. Steve then went back to his table. The restaurant manager, however, said that Weinstein declined politely and said "I'd rather not take a picture right now."
TMZ also acquired the video of the slapping and uploaded it for everyone to see. In the video, Steve went for the slap and Weinstein simply stumbled a little and kept walking. Steve then berated Weinstein as the latter showed himself out the door. Steve then slammed Weinstein with, "You're such a piece of s*** for what you did to these women." The angry man then told Weinstein to exit the area.
Weinstein's sober coach tried to block the camera recording the entire incident. The movie executive and his companion then left the restaurant peacefully and did not try to retaliate. Weinstein refused to press charges against Steve for slapping him.
In other news, Weinstein's ex-wife Georgina Chapman will receive $15 to $20 million in their divorce settlement. According to E! News, which acquired the information, no legal documents have been filed so far.
