Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein found himself on the receiving end of restaurant patron’s anger this Tuesday at an Arizona restaurant, in a confrontation that resulted in Weinstein taking two slaps to the face.
The slaps weren’t too violent, but drove the message home that the aggressor didn’t intend of treating him with any respect. According to TMZ, Weinstein was dining at a restaurant called “Elements” in Scottsdale, Arizona, when he was approached by a man identified only as “Steve,” who asked to take a photo with Weinstein.
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.
Weinstein reportedly declined to press charges.
