Former Hollywood mogul and the man who's actions helped spark the #MeToo campaign Harvey Weinstein was slapped in the face at an Arizona restaurant. The video posted on TMZ went viral on Tuesday night.

The incident happened at Elements restaurant at a Paradise Valley resort.

TMZ reported the film mogul was eating with his "sober coach" when a diner asked to take a photograph with him. Weinstein declined and proceeded to leave the restaurant, TMZ said.

The man then confronted Weinstein: "You're such a piece of s--- for what you did to these women," and sent Weinstein on his way.
