According to TMZ, Weinstein was dining with his sober coach at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain resort in ScottsdaleArizona when two men sat at a table adjacent to his. TMZ reports that a fellow diner, identified as "Steve", nearby asked for a photo and complimented Weinstein, and the disgraced mogul declined.
A civic-minded citizen walked up to Weinstein, and blasted him, saying: You're such a piece of shi* for what you did to these women. The man said that Weinstein vehemently refused, although the restaurant manager stated that Weinstein did so politely. Steve, who told TMZ that he had "quite a bit to drink", told his friend to pull out his cell phone and record what was about to happen. Steve's companion filmed the incident, which you can watch below, which shows Steve delivering two backhanded slaps to the face while berating Weinstein.
Weinstein has been laying low since November, when more than more than a dozen women, including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan and Mira Sorvino, accused the 63-year-old of sexual harassment and deliberately stalling their careers as payback for denying him or whistle blowing.
It is unclear if Weinstein filed a police report. Weinstein declined an offer to call police, no doubt wanting to avoid any kind of press whatsoever, and all parties were said to have left the restaurant. Weinstein did stumble, but way after he caught the hand to the face so it looked like he tripped more than anything.
Weinstein is under investigation by authorities in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London.
