Vitalii Sediuk is often cited as a “Ukrainian journalist” or “prankster” who does super fun hilarious pranks on celebrities on red carpets. Oops, sorry, I misread. By “prankster” what they seem to mean is he sexually assaults people for attention. Like that time he tried to kiss Will Smith, or buried his face in Bradley Cooper’s crotch, or buried his face in Brad Pitt’s crotch and punched him in the face, or tackled Kim Kardashian, or crawled under America Ferrera’s dress. You know. Pranks. Antics.
His latest “prank?” He came up from behind and picked up model Gigi Hadid without warning. You know. Like a murderer might. So she elbowed him in the fucking face.
The Sun described it accurately and fairly. By blaming Hadid for being too aggressive and not ladylike. WHY IS EVERYONE CELEBRATING OPPOSITE DAY TODAY?
