Tuesday night dinner became chaotic for disgraced Hollywood film mogul Harvey Weinstein when a diner slapped him while the former was spotted eating with a friend. 

The confrontation happened in Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa in Paradise Valley when a fellow diner decided to give a slap to Weinstein for all his shortcomings.

The diner apparently asked for a photo with Weinstein to which the producer refused. The slap came after, as a reply to his "no". 

In the video, the man can be seen walking up to Weinstein and saying, "You're such a piece of s--- for what you did to these women." Weinstein is seen caught off-guard.

The incident was confirmed to the media by Weinstein's representative Sallie Hofmeister. 

The producer is said to be undergoing rehab through the exclusive Meadows centre in Wickenburg. He has been spotted in the Valley over the oast few months after sexual abuse allegations surfaced against the producer. 

More than 80 women have come out against Weinstein accusing him of inappropriate to criminal behaviour, including allegations of rape. Weinstein has denied the allegations and two police investigations are under review by the Los Angeles district attorney. 

Recently, Hollywood stars wore black at Golden Globes red carpet in support of victims of abuse. The stars, both women and men (not so surprisingly) could be seen dressed in all black for the occasion -- as a symbol of the highly-talked Time's Up campaign that started off against this prevalent culture of misuse of power in one of the biggest entertainment industries of the world.
