Actor Ron Perlman Brags He Peed on Hands to Spite Weinstein, Twitter Finds Story Limp

On Monday, actor Ron Perlman shared a rather, shall we say, colorful anecdote about an occasion where he met with disgraced Hollywood titan Harvey Weinstein.

“Did I ever tell ya about when Harvey Weinstein told me to make sure I shook his hand at a charity event,” Perlman wrote. “So I stopped in the mens (sic) room and pissed all over my hand, then went straight up to him on the receiving line?”

The actor, perhaps best known for his work on the long-running FX series Sons of Anarchy, was widely criticized on Twitter — particularly by conservatives — for not alerting authorities to Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, and instead opting for a petty slight. (Though, it should be noted, Perlman did not specifically claim to have knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged misconduct.)

Perlman also made reference to President Donald Trump in his tweet — eliciting a response from Donald Trump Jr.

“I think about [the Weinstein incident] every time lil donnie opens up his KFC,” the actor wrote.
