We can’t say this attempt wasn’t deserved.
Harvey Weinstein was reportedly having dinner with his sober coach on Tuesday night when he was punched by some random drunk guy named Steve!
Here’s what apparently went down, according to TMZ.
The disgraced producer was approached by Steve, who was asking for a photo, while he was dining at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. While Steve says Weinstein became belligerent, the restaurant manager says the former Hollywood exec was “very sweet about it” and said, “I’d rather not take a picture right now,” before they shook hands and Steve went back to his table.
So, already Steve is a little unreliable, but let’s keep going.
Weinstein and his coach left their dinner around 9 p.m. at the same time as Steve and his dinner companion (coincidence? We think not.). Steve admits he had “quite a bit to drink,” so he asked his friend to film him as he approached Weinstein again.
He claims he walked up to Weinstein and punched him twice in the face while saying:
“You’re such a piece of shit for what you did to these women.”
While Steve says Harvey stumbled backward and almost fell, the manager clarified that “neither attempted punch connected,” and Steve was out-of-control drunk.
But there’s one thing everyone agrees on — Steve’s friend (who was filming the whole thing) asked Weinstein if he’d like to call the cops, but the filmmaker declined and everyone left the venue. Wow, Steve probably needs better friends.
