DISGRACED film mogul Harvey Weinstein has been attacked in an exclusive restaurant by a fellow diner who took him to task over the abuse allegations he faces.

Weinstein was at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale when a man, who has not been identified yet, approached the former movie mogul and slapped him in the face twice with the back of his hand, the video shows.

TMZ said the dark-haired man, who gave his name only as Steve, had earlier approached the dining Weinstein for a photo with him.

"You're such a piece of s-t for what you did to these women" he said in the video.

TMZ said the person shooting asked if Weinstein wanted to call the police, though this does not appear on the video.

The restaurant's manager, however, said Weinstein wasn't belligerent, he was actually "very sweet about it", she said, and he (allegedly) told the guy "I'd rather not take a picture right now".


The incident happened at around 9pm as Weinstein left the restaurant in Scottsdale.

Weinstein has since been accused of various sexual crimes by a plethora of women. While he did call him out for his treatment of women, to us, the fact that Steve had asked for a photo and then got his friend to film the encounter smacks of wanting attention, too.

Original reports stated that Weinstein had been punched in the face.

Reps for Weinstein told Page Six that Weinstein "is still OK and in good spirits" and that no police report was filed.

As you may know, Weinstein's case burst into the mainstream previous year after the New York Times and the New Yorker published exposé's exposing the alleged transgressions of Harvey and the people whom with he worked.
