Harvey Weinstein 'casting couch' statue appears on Hollywood Walk Of Fame

A Gold Statue Of Harvey Weinstein On A 'Casting Couch' Has Surfaced In Time For The Oscars

News of the deal comes just days before the Oscars, and the end of a tumultuous twelve months-hopefully to open a new chapter in Hollywood history.

The accusations against Weinstein triggered a flood of allegations of sexual impropriety by other celebrities that have rocked Hollywood and dominated this year's movie awards season.

Monroe told The Hollywood Reporter that the Weinstein statue's couch suggests a "visual representation of the practices and methods that are used in Hollywood with these big powerful people".

The statue can be found in the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, by the Dolby Theater, which is also the same place where the 90th Academy Awards will be held.

The golden statue, called "Casting Couch", features a man that looks an bad lot like Weinstein wearing a bathrobe. It shows Weinstein seated regally atop a couch with an Oscar in hand. "His power and influence was nearly without compare", he wrote.

PSG disclosed that scans also revealed that the prolific scorer had suffered a "sprain of the right ankle". With the World Cup on the cards, Neymar shouldn't be rushed into action.

According to the artists, the Weinstein sculpture took nearly two months to be crafted.

Plastic Jesus and Ginger were also responsible for producing naked statues of Donald Trump that appeared in various USA cities in 2016, before he was elected U.S. president. However, this wouldn't be the first time Weinstein was turned into a sculpture.

"For the past 4 years I have created an alternative Oscars statue to highlight issues that often go unnoticed in the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, these have included drug addiction, hero worship and exploitation", a message on the artist's GoFundMe website read, seeking funds for the creation of this year's statue.

According to reports, Weinstein will not be attending this year's Oscars due to the sexual misconduct allegations levelled against him by more than 70 women.
