A night of comedy ended in a performer and an audience member being asked to leave a bar in New York City after they confronted Harvey Weinstein in the audience.
Kelly Bachman was one of several performers at Manhattan’s Downtime Bar in a variety show sponsored by Actor’s Hour Wednesday night where, she told CNN, she spotted the former Hollywood producer. She used her time onstage to call Weinstein “Freddy Krueger” and call out rape allegations against him.
Weinstein currently faces criminal charges of predatory sexual assault, criminal sexual act, first-degree rape and third-degree rape, to which he has pleaded not guilty. He maintains that all sexual encounters he’s been involved in have been consensual.
The trial is expected to begin in January.
