A 36-foot-tall effigy of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is scheduled to be set ablaze at a bonfire celebration Saturday in England. 

The wooden likeness of the former Hollywood producer will be burned at the annual British Bonfire Night festival, a famous tradition upheld by the Edenbridge Bonfire Society in memory of Guy Fawkes' 1605 failed attempt to blow up the Parliament.

Every year, the organization selects an infamous celebrity effigy to be burned alongside the traditional effigy of Guy Fawkes.

Weinstein, who faces a mountain of rape, sexual harassment, and sexual assault accusations in Britan alone, was chosen  "as a result of recent allegations regarding the Hollywood producer’s sexual conduct," the organization said Wednesday.

Last year, the society set ablaze an effigy of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"As with last year there were many strong contenders for this year’s celebrity guy, particularly in the political and cultural world," a spokesperson for the society said. "However, Weinstein was the obvious option due to allegations of outrageous and despicable conduct, which we at Edenbridge Bonfire Society obviously found completely abhorrent."

The spokesperson also added: "While the burning of the guys is aimed as a light-hearted way to mark the traditional bonfire night celebrations in the UK, there is of course nothing funny about Weinstein’s behaviour, so it seemed only fair that he gets his comeuppance in effigy form."

The society's bonfire event reportedly raises thousands of dollars for local charities.
