Senator Hillary Clinton's inner circle is furious at MIRAMAX king Harvey Weinstein after the former first lady suffered through a public relations nightmare during Saturday's CONCERT FOR NEW YORK.
Hillary Clinton was jeered and booed by thousands gathered at Madison Square Garden as she took to the stage -- unannounced -- to introduce a movie clip.
VH1 cameras captured firemen and police heroes wildly booing Clinton, who attempted to raise her voice above the shouting crowd.
"Get off the stage! We don't want you here!" yelled one New York City police officer just feet from the senator.
Anti-Clinton slurs spread and intensified throughout the Garden, with many standing near the stage lobbing profanities.
Event-planner and close Clinton friend Harvey Weinstein was visibly shaken as he heard the crowd erupt with boos and jeers, according to an eyewitness.
The junior senator from New York ending up giving the shortest presentation of the evening, clocking in at under 20 seconds.
"How could we not know this would be the wrong forum for Hillary?!" shouted one confidante. "These are cops and firemen who listen to right-wing talkradio. They still think she killed Vince Foster, for Christ's sake!"
Clinton herself is not angry at Weinstein. "She was really upset by the response because of how unexpected it was, there was no way of seeing it coming," says a top source.
Other New York politicians received warmer welcomes during the 5-hour concert which featured Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Elton John and others.
Former President Bill Clinton, who took the stage minutes after his wife, worked over scattered boos with talk of the rescuers' heroism.
Following the Clintons, James Taylor soothed the heroes with an acoustic FIRE AND RAIN.
The concert raised millions of dollars for September 11 relief efforts.
