Last year Harvey Weinstein made headlines after multiple women stepped forward and accused him of sexual assault. On Tuesday night it was reported that a man walked up to Weinstein and attempted to punch him in the face. This came shortly after Jimmy Kimmel joked that “who’s to say that Harvey Weinstein is going to be alive in two months,”
According to TMZ, One of the men -- Steve, walked up to Weinstein and told him he loved his movies and would like to take a photo with him. Steve says Weinstein became belligerent and told him to buzz off. The manager of the restaurant says Weinstein was not belligerent -- she says to the contrary he was "very sweet about it" and said, "I'd rather not take a picture right now." The manager says the two shook hands and Steve went back to his table. Also adding that around 9 PM, Weinstein, and his sober coach got up to leave at the same time Steve and his dinner companion were leaving. Steve tells TMZ he had “quite a bit to drink,” told his friend to fire up his cell phone and shoot video of what was about to happen.
Steve says he walked up to Weinstein and said, “You’re such a piece of s*** for what you did to these women,” and then punched him in the face twice. He says Weinstein stumbled backward and almost fell. According to the restaurant manager, Weinstein declined for the police to be called and neither of the punches thrown landed.
