Paris Fashion Week brought many iconic looks for Spring 2020, but it also included some memorable moments, including the incident that saw a Parisian prankster crashing the Chanel Spring/Summer 2020 runway.
The stunt was followed by a move pulled by Ukraine-based Vitalii Sediuk, who yanked Justin Timberlake’s leg as the singer was making his way to the Louis Vuitton show with wife Jessica Biel.
The prankster, who goes by ‘Entertainment Hollywood Reporter’ on Instagram, ran to the courtyard of the Louvre and grabbed onto Timberlake’s right leg.
Security guards at the area were quick to remove Sediuk from the spot. The couple, on the other hand, seemed to laugh off the situation as they continued their way to the show.
After the incident, Sediuk explained on his Instagram story, writing, “Before [the] media says that my prank was an ‘attack’ (as always), I want to explain what ‘attack’ means. This summer my friends and me were attacked and injured by an aggressive homophobe at a gay beach in Kyiv.”
He also posted photos of the injuries saying that the police “did nothing,” while Ukrainian television channels turned a blind eye to the incident. He continued in his post, “I hope now something will change the LGBTG community in my country, and all over the world feels safe.”
Sediuk went on to post a picture of the viral moment where he held onto Timberlake’s foot, captioning the photo with, “Polishing Justin's shoes like…"
This wasn’t his first time pulling off such moves. In 2012, he tried to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet in Moscow, and at the 2013 Grammys, he barged onto the stage during Adele’s acceptance speech.
In various red carpet events in 2014, the prankster grabbed onto Leonardo di Caprio and Bradley Cooper’s legs. He also jumped under America Ferrera’s dress on the Cannes red carpet, which caused him to lose his job as a reporter with Ukrainian television channel 1+1.
In 2016, he notoriously went up to Gigi Hadid from behind and picked her from the floor, and tried to kiss Kim Kardashian’s behind in Paris a couple of days later.
