World Cup Fan Tries to Kiss Reporter During Live Shot: ‘It’s Awful. I Feel Helpless, Vulnerable’

Brazilian TV reporter Julia Guimarães was about to do a live report before the Japan-Senegal World Cup match Sunday when a Russian tried to force a kiss on her. But she shot him down, telling him in English, “Never do this again. I don’t allow you to do it. This is not polite. This is not right.”

“It’s the second time that has happened to me here in Russia,” Guimarães told “I’m living it a lot here in Russia. It’s awful. I feel helpless, vulnerable. This time I gave an answer, but it’s sad. People do not understand. I wanted to understand why you think you have the right to do that.”
