In an incident that was captured on video, disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was accosted in a restaurant and slapped twice in the face, TMZ reports.
The website reports that the incident took place Tuesday night at Elements restaurant in Scottsdale, Ariz. TMZ reports that it started when a guy named Steve approached Weinstein 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,” TMZ reports. “Steve and Weinstein shook hands and sat down, but [the] 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 explained to TMZ that he had been drinking, and he asked a friend to shoot the video as he approached Weinstein.
