Vitalii Sediuk has struck again.
And this is getting seriously ridiculous.
The serial "prankster" (can outlets please stop using that term? The guy isn’t calling celebrities and claiming to be Seymour Butts…) just went out and attacked Kim Kardashian.
In broad daylight.
Sediuk has gained a reputation as someone who harasses and assaults celebrities. There’s really no other way to put it.
Just a few days ago, he jumped on the back of Gigi Hadid while she was in France.
Prior to that Sediuk attacked Ciara.
He also tried to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet one time and literally crawled under the dress of America Ferrera.
For real. This actually happened (see below) and the guy who perpetrated the violation of privacy was barely punished.
So that brings us to Wednesday afternoon.
Kardashian had just gotten out of a car in Paris when Vitalii Sediuk ran up from behind her and tried to kiss her famous rear end.
We make fun of Kim Kardashian and her family members all the time, but something such as this is inexcusable. It’s completely undeserved.
As you can see, Kim’s bodyguard doesn’t let Sediuk get very far in his mission, tackling him to the ground almost immediately:
The video was posted to Instagram by makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, but there’s actually a longer version circulating around the Internet.
It features Sediuk getting up after being tossed aside, putting on his hat and sprinting away from the scene of his crime.
And that’s really what this should be: a crime.
Kim should file charges. Anyone this moron attacks should file charges.
It’s one thing to say a celebrity should expect to get made fun of online or something. But it’s a very different thing to say a celebrity isn’t entitled to physical privacy and well-being.
Kim, who has actually been targeted by Vitalii in the past, took to Twitter soon after the incident to thank security guard Pascual Duvier for keeping him safe, referring to him as "G."
Here is the extended footage of Sediuk running away as quickly as he can after his attack gets thwarted:
Vitallii, meanwhile, also took to social after the confrontation to confirm he was, indeed, the culprit.
"I was protesting Kim for using fake butt implants. I encourage her and the rest of Kardashian clan to popularise natural beauty among teenage girls who follow and defend them blindly," he wrote on Instagram.
He then added:
"P.s. I was sitting there outside the posh restaurant to use free wifi and eating my ice-cream. When all of a sudden, the pack of paparazzi came out and the car with Kim Kardashian.
"I swear I didn’t know she was going to be there. So I had to come out with an idea very fast. Does it mean if I don’t go to celebrities, they come to me? Lol."
What a total and complete tool.
This guy should be in jail.
