Why didn’t Zach Erdem make his statement while Weinstein and Epstein were eating at his restaurant?

The owner of a Southampton, New York restaurant did what he felt was needed to wipe out the “bad energy” that came from the table once regularly occupied by Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein.

Zach Erdem, the owner of 75 Main, chopped up and burned Table 1 with a large crowd gathered around him in order to erase the memories of the disgraced moguls’ from the restaurant’s history.”When I thought about it, like Jeffrey Epstein used to sit at this table, all I could think was I need to burn this f—-ing table and make sure nothing is going to stain my restaurant,” he told CNN.

Epstein was awaiting trial on federal charges of sexually abusing underage girls when he was found dead in his jail cell last August. Weinstein, meanwhile, is serving a 23-year sentence after being found guilty in February of first-degree criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. He is also facing multiple sexual assault charges in California (Weinstein, 68, has denied all allegations against him).
