A Brazilian reporter named Julia Guimaraes nearly gets kissed by a fan while live reporting. This is not the first incident of such nature, a Colombian journalist was earlier kissed and groped by fans during live reporting and that incident created waves. But there seems to be no stopping to such trends in Russia during the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018. This is the second on-camera assault on a female journalist covering the World Cup in a week.
The reporter was live on air in Yekaterinburg, Russia, when she was forced by a fan to kiss. She avoided the kissed and then started yelling at the unidentified man. Guimaraes demanded that he showed respect and told him to “never do this again.”
Here is the video of the incident.
Football fans are renowned for their hooliganism instincts and this time it seems they are hell-bent on pushing the bar.
