Just when you thought it was safe to return to Hollywood, a giant golden Harvey Weinstein atop a "casting couch" has been erected (gross).

Washington D.C. [U.S.], March 3: Days before the 90th Academy Awards ceremony, a silk robe-swaddled golden statue of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, holding an Oscar and sitting on a golden chaise couch was erected on Thursday. "Hopefully now, in the light of recent allegations against many leading figures in Hollywood, the industry will clean up its act", he added.

The statue, which appears to invite onlookers onto the couch for a photo op, popped up on Hollywood and La Brea, near the Academy Awards venue, the Dolby Theatre.
