Brad Pitt issued a statement regarding Vitalii Sediuk, the idiot who tried to punch him on the red carpet at the Maleficent premiere. It is a truly hilarious and awesome must-read.
Pitt tells People magazine…
“I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels. I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.”
“I don’t mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”
Brad Pitt: American Hero.
As for this idiot Vitalii Sediuk, he also spoke in an interview on Extra, saying, “I am a different guy who thinks differently and has this entertainment spirit that probably people in Hollywood never experienced before. It’s something different, controversial, extraordinary and it’s hard to explain. I’m normal, at least I believe so.”
You’re the only one, dickhead.
