Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein was slapped in the face twice by a diner at a restaurant in Scottsdale in Arizona on Tuesday night.
Footage obtained by TMZ shows Weinstein receiving two backhanded slaps to the face by an angry diner by the name of Steve, who repeatedly called him a “piece of shit”.
“Fu**ing with those women, get the f**k out of here. Get your fu**ing ass out of here,” Steve is heard to say to Weinstein in the video below.

When asked by an employee of the restaurant what he would do about it, Steve replied: “Shut the f**k up, get the f**k out of here.”
According to TMZ, Steve had "quite a bit to drink" and had instructed his friend to record him on video as he approached Weinstein, who he said was “belligerent”.
A restaurant manager, on the other hand, said that Weinstein was “sweet” and politely declined the photo request.
TMZ reports that Weinstein subsequently left the restaurant without calling the police.
Weinstein is currently under investigation by police in the US and the UK having been alleged of inappropriate behaviour ranging from intimidating sexual advances to rape by more than 75 women, including a number of prominent Hollywood actresses.
