Movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who was sacked from The Weinstein Co.in October following reports that documented decades of sexual harassment and allegations of rape and abuse, was slapped by a patron at an Arizona restaurant Tuesday night.
One of the men, identified simply as "Steve", walked up to Weinstein and told him he loved his movies and wanted to take a picture with him.
The man who slapped Harvey Weinstein claimed that the disgraced producer was "extremely rude" and "belligerent" leading up to the attack, but newly uncovered audio of their encounter tells a whole different story. Steve later confronted Weinstein when he got up to leave.
In the video, Weinstein wears a stained gray T-shirt and black knit cap, which he removed after the backhander's patty-cake slap.
Video of the incident shows Weinstein's dinner companion try to stop footage from being shot while the man yells expletives, People magazine noted. The Paradise Valley Police Department told The Arizona Republic that it had received no calls from the restaurant's location nor reports about the incident. Weinstein can be seen leaving the restaurant at the end of the video, and as reported earlier declined to alert police to the attack.
