DIRTY HARVEY WEINSTEIN GETS SLAPPED IN HIS FACE



Dirty Harvey Weinstein Gets Slapped




TMZ -- Disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein got slapped in the face and cursed out by a restaurant patron as he left an Arizona eatery Tuesday, new video reveals.



Weinstein — who is accused of sexual harassment, assault or rape by dozens of women — was walking out of Elements in Scottsdale after dinner when a man, only identified as Steve, hit him twice in the face with his backhand, according to TMZ, which published the footage.


"Get the f--k out of here," the man says in the video. "Get your f--ing a-- out of here. You're a f---ing piece of s--t."


Weinstein stumbled a bit after Steve slapped his face before quickly leaving. Weinstein opted not to call the police following the incident.



Steve had gone up to Weinstein, 65, earlier in the evening and asked him to take a photo, but Weinstein declined, a restaurant manager told TMZ. The manager said Weinstein was "sweet" about saying no, and that Steve appeared to be drunk when he approached Weinstein again later that evening.



Steve also informed the celebrity gossip website that he had "quite a bit to drink" before he went up to Weinstein.



Weinstein went to Scottsdale in October and took part in a therapy program there after sexual misconduct allegations against him rapidly began to emerge. He has kept a mostly low-profile amid the scandal and but has been photographed several times since the accusations first surfaced.



Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lupita N'yongo and Ashley Judd are among the women to accuse Weinstein of making an unwanted sexual advance toward them early in their careers. Rose McGowan is one of several women to accuse Weinstein of rape.

THE CAMPAIGN TO REMOVE JUDGE AARON PERSKY

Jill Soloway



On Saturday, October 15th at 8:00pm at Complex, F*ck Rape Culture presents an evening of music and speakers to benefit the Committee to Unseat Judge Aaron Persky, including Jill Soloway, Michel Dauber, Madame Gandhi, The Ruby Friedman Orchestra, Flavia, Enola Fall, and No Girlfriends. This show is 21+ and tickets are $12 in advance and $18 at the door.


The Campaign to Unseat Judge Persky's mission statement:


"We are outraged at Judge Persky's actions, and we don't just want talk, we want to take him out of office. That is why the Committee to Recall Judge Persky is the only effort in existence that has put together a comprehensive plan and team that can actually take Persky out of office, so that he can no longer shield sex offenders from justice."



Aaron Persky gave too lenient a sentence to Brock Turner, a former Stanford Swimmer convicted of sexual assault. Turner was only sentenced to six months for his heinous crime, and Persky cited the impact prison would have on Turner's life in his decision. Persky is unfit to sit on the bench, and as long as he is a judge, predators in Santa Clara County will know they have an ally on the bench.


WHEN: Saturday, October 15th at 8:00pm

FASHION DESIGNER ANAND JON JAILED

Anand Jon At Fashion Show
Fashion designer Anand Jon was charged with multiple counts of rape and sexual assault involving three alleged victims, Los Angeles County prosecutors said.
Jane Robison, a Los Angeles County district attorney's office spokeswoman, said Jon was charged with six felonies and a misdemeanor for the alleged sexual assaults occurring between October 2004 and March 5, The Los Angeles Times said Wednesday. Beverly Hills, Calif., police on March 6 arrested Jon, who is being held in lieu of $1.3 million bail. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a hold on the New York-based designer, a superstar in his native India.
Jon's attorney, Ronald Richards, said the allegations were made up by models who thought they weren't getting the work they expected. "(What) is going on here is these girls fly in for model jobs after months of dialogue filled with flirtation, they have sexual interaction and if he doesn't put them in the show ... then some time later they claim they had unwanted sex," Richards said. Prosecutors alleged that in October 2004, Jon raped a woman and that this year he committed lewd acts with a 15-year-old. The investigation began after a third woman reported being raped.
