Many social media users were quick to point out that the former Hollywood producer was unrecognizable in the court sketches.

Others took great delight in mocking her representation of Weinstein’s rotund stomach and pointed out that it appeared Rosenberg didn’t care too much for the alleged rapist.

‘The sketch artist in court with Harvey Weinstein has really captured his essence,’ one Twitter user wrote.  

‘V happy Weinstein wore that periwinkle blue sweather. Made for some excellently grotesque court room sketches,’ another said.

Another tweet praised the artist, saying: ‘The Harvey Weinstein courtroom sketch artist is my new favorite artist.’

This Twitter user offered up some advice for the artist: ‘If I were the courtroom sketch artist working as they brought in Harvey Weinstein, I would have drawn the most detailed, veiny, hairy-balled, appalling d**k – added legs and called it a f**king day.’

The sketches emerged in the hours after the once-powerful Hollywood figure faced court after being charged with rape and criminal sex acts involving two women.

It was a searing reckoning for the man who has become a symbol of a worldwide outcry over sexual misconduct.

‘This defendant used his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually,’ Manhattan Assistant Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said later, in words that brought raised eyebrows from the otherwise stony-faced Weinstein. 

The charges stem from encounters with two of the dozens of women – some famous, some not – who have accused him of sexual misdeeds.

The rape charge involves a woman who has not come forward publicly; the other is a onetime aspiring actress who was among his first accusers.

Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of nonconsensual sex.

His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said on Friday that he would fight to get the charges dismissed.

He began to take aim at the accusations and accusers, noting that the alleged attacks weren’t reported to police when they happened and suggesting potential jurors wouldn’t believe the women.

‘Assuming we get 12 fair people who are not consumed by the movement that seems to have overtaken this case,’ he said. 

Weinstein was released on $1 million bail, with constant electronic monitoring and a ban on traveling beyond New York and Connecticut.
