Harvey Weinstein Statue Appears in Hollywood

A golden statue of a bathrobe wearing Harvey Weinstein sits near the site of the upcoming Academy Awards.

The statue, titled "Casting Couch" is a collaboration between a LA street artist known as Plastic Jesus and Joshua "Ginger" Monroe, the man behind the nude Donald Trump statues placed in major US cities.

Plastic Jesus says the piece is to highlight the industries sexual misconduct scandals.

"There's so much about Hollywood that's great and celebrated in the Oscars, but there's also this underbelly of darkness within the industry that we often sweep under the carpet or ignore."

Weinstein has been accused by several women of sexual harassment or assault, including rape. 

He's denied all allegations of non-consensual sex, but has apologized for "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past."
