Harvey Weinstein can expect negative reactions from people wherever he goes, but the disgraced movie mogul wasn’t expecting to be attacked at a restaurant.
Weinstein was eating dinner at a resort in Scottsdale, Arizona when he was approached by two men seated at the next table. One of the men tells TMZ that he walked up to Weinstein, told him he enjoyed his movies and asked for a photo. He claims Weinstein was belligerent and told him to go away. But the restaurant manager says Weinstein was gracious, said he’d rather not take a picture and then shook the man’s hand.
Later, as Weinstein left the restaurant, he was followed out by the two men and they got into a confrontation. One of the men yelled at Weinstein for his alleged sexual abuse of women and then tried to punch him in the face twice. The restaurant manager says neither punch landed, but Weinstein stumbled and nearly fell. In the end, everyone parted ways and Weinstein declined to press charges. (Premiere Prep)

If we’re being honest….it looked more like a little slap than a punch.
