EAST VILLAGE, Manhattan — Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was confronted by a woman attending an event at a Lower Manhattan bar, part of which was caught on camera.

Weinstein was at the Downtime Bar on Avenue B for an event called "Actors Hours." The video shows Zoe Stuckless confronting Weinstein. She was escorted out of the bar after saying what she had to say.

Stuckless also claims a comedian was booed for bringing up Weinstein at the event. The bar has claimed they had nothing to do with the organization of the event or who attended. The organizers say that Weinstein was not invited and apologized for his presence.

Weinstein, 67, is scheduled for trial in January on charges alleging that he raped an unidentified woman in his New York City hotel room in 2013 and performed a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006. He has faced numerous other accusations of harassment, rape and other sexual misconduct.

The former movie mogul has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
