WATCH: Harvey Weinstein gets slapped twice at a restaurant by a man
"You're a piece of s**t!" the man said.
It won't be wrong to say that 2017 was literally the year of Harvey Weinstein, co-founder of the entertainment company Miramax. Obviously, not in a good sense.
Ever since the scandalous revelation about the film mogul's perverted ways was made in a New York Times article, several known faces from Hollywood openly accused him of sexual harassment and assault. Actresses like An Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Leana Headey spoke about how they were harassed by the producer.
This morning, Harvey Weinstein was accused of rape in an explosive New Yorker exposé by Ronan Farrow. Shortly after, actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie went on the record with the New York Times, alleging sexual harassment against the producer. Says Paltrow: "I thought he was going to fire me ... I was expected to keep the secret." For more on this story as it develops, head to THR.com.
Thereafter, the #MeToo campaign, wherein women all over the world shared their experiences of being sexually harassed caught on like wildfire on social media.
Now, it seems like the new year too is going to be about Harvey, who is currently in an Arizona sex rehab (for obvious reasons). Why? Well, because the year has just begun and the man is in news again-for the wrong reasons (again!).
It so happened that on January 9, Harvey was dining at Elements at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort with his sober coach when a man approached him asking for a picture. Politely refusing to the man, he got up to leave according to a report in TMZ.
What happened next will literally shock you--not as much as it would have probably shocked Harvey though.
The man walked up to him and said, "You're such a piece of s*** for what you did to these women," and hit him in the face twice.

Yikes! Harvey Weinstein got slapped and cussed out while eating dinner in Arizona. He's currently in rehab at a facility in the same state. Not an advocate of violence but karma is a ________. pic.twitter.com/oalW80gU4o— Jessie (Kofie and Jessie Podcast on iTunes) (@JMKTV) January 10, 2018
