Perlman tweeted that Weinstein had insisted they shake hands at a charity event, and when the chance finally came for the two men to engage, Perlman "stopped in the mens room and pissed all over my hand, then went straight up to him on the receiving line."
That's right. Perlman intentionally peed on his hand right before he shook hands with Weinstein.

Perlman didn't give any specifics on where or when the event took place, but last November he tweeted that he really wanted to punch Weinstein over the scores of sexual misconduct allegations made against the movie producer, who was indicted on rape charges in May.
"Man, if I had an Oscar for every time I almost hit Harvey Weinstein!!" Perlman wrote.

Perlman's tweet was in response to an interview James Cameron gave to Vanity Fair, in which he recalled " remember almost getting in a fight with Harvey Weinstein and hitting him with my Oscar."
Though likely well-intended, Perlman's tweet didn't get the social media response he was probably expecting. Sure, it's hilarious, but Twitter wasn't ready to let the idea of a grown man peeing on his own hand - and touting it as justice - slip away easily.
