Man Tries To Kiss Reporter On Live TV. Her Reaction Has Internet Cheering

Julia Guimaraes was reporting live from Yekaterinburg in Russia before the Japan vs Senegal game


A Brazilian sports journalist is being praised online for giving it back to the man who tried to kiss her while she was reporting live from the World Cup. Julia Guimaraes from TV Globo and SportTV was reporting live from Yekaterinburg in Russia before the Japan vs Senegal game when a man leaned in to kiss her on the cheek as she spoke to the camera.

She immediately ducked to avoid the man and gave him a piece of her mind while the camera still rolled.

"Don't do this! Never do this again," she shouted at the man, who can be heard apologising in the clip. "Don't do this, I don't allow you to do this, never, OK? This is not polite, this is not right. Never do this to a woman, OK? Respect," she said in the clip that is now viral.

The channel posted the clip to highlight the incident
 
The reporter took to Twitter and said, "It's hard to find the words ... Luckily, I have never experienced this in Brazil. Over here it has happened twice. Sad! Shameful!"

The journalist claimed she was also harassed during the opening game of the World Cup between Russia and Egypt in Moscow. She added that she had also been at the receiving end of unwanted attention, ranging from aggressive looks to offensive songs in Russia.

The clip soon began circulating on Twitter where people praised her for her firm yet restrained response to the man.
 
This, however isn't the first such instance at World Cup. Recently, a German TV correspondent, Julieth Gonzales Theran, was groped on air by a Russian fan in the city of Saransk. After widespread condemnation, including from the channel, the fan apologised to the correspondent.
