Weinstein said in a statement through his rep: “I am happy to address anyone’s questions. We should all be offered the courtesy to voice opinions and be heard, and to even get answers. I am glad we all still have these rights.”
The rep told the New York Post that the “scene uncalled for, downright rude and an example of how due process today is being squashed by the public, trying to take it away in the courtroom too.”
Weinstein was not recognized when he showed up at the bar. He was described as using a walker “and looked pretty beat up,” according to the Post.
Event organizer Alexandra Laliberte said on Instagram that Weinstein was “not invited by the organizer or anyone associated with this organization.”
