Ron Perlman has admitted that he urinated on his own hand before shaking hands with disgraced Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein.
The ‘Hellboy’ actor tweeted about the time he pissed all over his own hand before greeting Weinstein at a charity event.
He posted: ‘Did I ever tell ya about when Harvey Weinstein told me to make sure I shook his hand at a charity event, so I stopped in the mens room and pissed all over my hand, then went straight up to him on the receiving line? I think about that every time lil donnie opens up his KFC.’

While some have congratulated Perlman on the prank, others have questioned whether it’s the best way of calling out a perpetrator – although Perlman doesn’t say when the incident happened, so it’s not known if he was aware of any of the allegations at that point.
I’m sure the women Weinstein assaulted & terrorised are so grateful you pissed on your hand instead of saying something to expose his rapey antics. You’re a hero. ??

Next time there’s a serial rapist in your midst, please pee on your hands AFTER you’ve alerted authorities and the perp has been arrested. Thank you

It’s not the first time Perlman has tweeted his dislike of the producer – back in November, he posted: “Man, if I had an Oscar for every time I almost hit Harvey Weinstein!!” in reference to an article about James Cameron almost hitting Weinstein with his ‘Titanic’ Oscar.

Last October, Weinstein was accused of rape by multiple women, which he “unequivocally denied”.
Weinstein surrendered himself to face sexual misconduct charges at the end of May, before being indicted on rape charges.
He agreed to hand over his passport, wear an electronic monitor, and restrict travel to New York state and Connecticut.
In February, it emerged that there are reported offences dating back to the 1970s.
Pulitzer-winning playwright David Mamet has written a play based on the accusations against Weinstein, although production details are yet to be revealed.
