Statue of disgraced Harvey Weinstein unveiled in Los Angeles

Oscars Weinstein Statue

Plastic Jesus said the Weinstein statue - a collaboration with artist Joshua "Ginger" Monroe - took two months to produce.

The statue depicts Weinstein sitting on a couch while clad in a bathrobe, holding an Oscar in a suggestively phallic manner.

Harvey Weinstein "Casting Couch" Oscars on Hollywood Blvd by artist Plastic Jesus. "Hopefully now in the light of recent allegations, against many leading figures in Hollywood the industry will clean up its act".

The statue, which appears to invite onlookers onto the couch for a photo op, popped up on Hollywood and La Brea, near the Academy Awards venue, the Dolby Theatre. It depicts the disgraced media titan sitting on a "casting couch", wearing a silk robe and holding an Oscar, a scene reminiscent from so numerous allegation against him. "Casting Couch" follows conservative street artist Sabo's contributions earlier in the week: three billboards saying, "And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to..."; "We all knew and still no arrests" and "Name names on stage or shut the hell up!"

Watching that film in the theatre and the sermon that was given in the film by Billy Graham, changed Fletcher's life forever. Bush credited Billy Graham with helping him transform himself from carousing oilman to born-again Christian family man.

Weinstein was one of the movie industry's most influential men, powering independent movies such as "The King's Speech" and "Shakespeare in Love" to Oscar best picture wins.

Ginger made the statue's head and upper body, whereas Plastic Jesus took care of the rest. Clenched in Weinstein's right hand is an Oscar sculpture, intentionally placed near his groin.

The life-sized Weinstein sculpture was on display today on Hollywood Boulevard.

Over 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, with accounts ranging from unwanted advances to rape. The 65-year-old reportedly sought treatment at a facility in Arizona in the midst of the scandal, but he has profusely denied all allegations regarding his apparent behavior.
