A robe-swaddled Harvey Weinstein statue, sitting arms spread on a golden chaise lounge urging pedestrians to sit beside him, appeared in Hollywood on Thursday days before the 90th Academy Awards ceremony.
The sculpture, located on Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, is a collaboration between street artists Plastic Jesus, best known for his annual Oscar season installations that take aim at the dark side of show business, and Joshua "Ginger" Monroe, the artist behind the infamous naked Donald Trump statues.
The piece was intentionally crafted to allow passers-by to sit beside Weinstein and take photos with him. Clenched in Weinstein's right hand is an Oscar statue, strategically placed near his groin.
"For many years the exploitation of many hopefuls and established names in the industry was brushed under the carpet with their complaints of harassment and sexual abuse being ignored or worse," Plastic Jesus tells The Hollywood Reporter. "Hopefully, now in the light of recent allegations against many leading figures in Hollywood the industry will clean up its act.

I havent seen it while driving about yet...but apparently there are billboards up that say things like “And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to...”
Hollywood is the lobby for the continued use of illegally held guns.
Hollywood needs to ban the use of all guns in their product.
It’s the 90th Academy Awards live from the Harvey Weinstein Pavilion!
I wonder if Jen Lawrence will curl up with the statue?
My guess is, Willie Brown's concubine Kamala Harris, won't be the politician who takes up that cause.
Sabo, is that you buddy? Well done.
Are the actresses going to return or donate to charity all the money for the roles that couch brought them? Yeah I thought not.
I heard Sabo on the radio today, being interviewed by Dr. Drew and another person. The interview was sort of choppy and strained in parts. Dr. Drew didn’t know when to take Sabo’s remarks seriously or not. Sabo seemed kind of prickly about answering questions. Dr. Drew asked ‘So do you really think pedophilles are running rampant in Hollywood? Sabo replies;
“Everybody knows it. I’m sure you’ve seen it yourself!”
Dr. Drew; “No, actually. No I haven’t.” Sabo; “Wow, you must live a sheltered life then.”
The statue isn’t fat enough.
Ahhhhh! There we go. Now THAT makes sense and is truth! I wondered in the straight on picture why the Oscar looked headless. Well done Plastic Jesus. Well done indeed!
How long before women stick their heads under that robe while a friend takes a picture? Probably a few gays too.
Sorry, the more I’m finding out, the more I’m believing that most visited that couch willingly and that many went out of their way to find it on their own.
