In some of this week’s most satisfying news, it might not be amazing to be Harvey Weinstein right now. Weinstein, who was one of the major pervs that inspired the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, was eating at a restaurant in Arizona on Tuesday night when a stranger walked up and slapped him in the face. It is with full journalistic integrity that I now pause to say YAAASSSSSSSS.
TMZ has a video of the whole thing, because obviously the gods were smiling down upon us, and it’s glorious. Harvey looks like he just spent a month living in the forest with only a single grey t-shirt to wear, which was maybe all he had time to grab before being chased out of Hollywood by a torch mob of actresses.
The slapper is a man who looks sort of ruggedly handsome from the quick glimpse we get in the video, and afterward he yells “Get the fuck out of here…you’re a piece of shit. Get your fucking ass out of here.” We don’t know who this man is, but we vow today that we will find him and marry the shit out of him. This is what we mean when we talk about male allies working to stop sexual assault and harassment, and this man deserves a fucking award.
Harvey Weinstein was apparently having dinner with his sober coach when the other diner (who was a little drunk) approached him, at first to ask for a photo. We’re sad the photo didn’t happen because we have a feeling there would have been a casual middle finger or something, but the slapping video is even better. If this man turns into the first big viral sensation of 2018, it’s going to be a good year. Now, I just need to know where Harvey Weinstein is at all times so I can also go and slap the shit out of him.
