Gigi Hadid has unfortunately become the latest victim of Vitalii Sediuk.

You remember Vitalii Sediuk, don’t you?

This total loser/moron/douchebag has become famous for playing supposed pranks on celebrities during public appearances.

Back in October of 2014, Sediuk attacked Ciara while she was in Paris:

This scary incident took place just a few days after Sediuk also went after Kim Kardashian in that French city.

In Moscow in 2012, Will Smith went ahead and slapped Sediuk after the Ukrainian tried to kiss Smith on a red carpet.

Really, this actually happened:

Oh, and Sediuk once crawled under America Ferrera’s dress on the red carpet.


Sediuk also attacked Brad Pitt at the Maleficent premiere, eventually being punished to community service for this action.

So all this brings us to Gigi Hadid and an incident in Milan on Wednesday, September 21.

The model was leaving Max Mara’s fashion show with sister Bella Hadid when stupid Vitalii Sediuk grabbed her from behind and lifted her off the ground.

Hadid understandably flipped out and managed to elbow Sediuk in the face.

Shortly following this incident, The Sun ran a very dumb and misleading headline.

It read: “NOT MODEL BEHAVIOUR – Gigi Hadid aggressively lashes out and ELBOWS fan in the FACE after he tries to pick her up.”

To the star’s credit, she called out the newspaper for completely skewing the events to make it seem as if she overreacted.

“To unknown article writer: fan?!!!” Hadid tweeted. “The ACTUAL fans that were there can tell you what happened. I’m a HUMAN BEING and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself.

"How dare that idiot think he has a right to man handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho.”

Seriously, this was not a fan.

This was a deranged idiot who could not be more desperate for attention, of any kind.

Are celebrities open to criticism and ridicule because they are public figures? Yes, sometimes.

But not to any sort of physical contact. They have a right to privacy and a right to talk down a street or a red carpet without being grabbed and hoisted in the air.

This is absurd.

Sediuk is a serial offender and should be sentenced to time in prison.
