Hundreds of reporters from all over the world have flocked to the World Cup to report on their country's team.
One such reporter, a Brazilian woman named Júlia Guimarães was reporting by the stadium when a random man thought it was a cool idea to try and plant a kiss on her cheek AS SHE IS DOING HER JOB.
Great response from Brazilian TV journalist Julia Guimaraes of Sportv to unacceptable behaviour. Not easy to show such restraint in the face of harassment. pic.twitter.com/eFVZz6gdMA— Colin Millar (@Millar_Colin) June 24, 2018
The creep failed, then backed up fast as Guimarães turned to him and said:
“Don’t do this! Never do this again. 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.”
Later on social media, she wrote about how she's experienced this behavior TWICE while reporting for the World Cup and that the experiences make her feel "helpless and vulnerable".
This incident happened just a week after another reporter from Colombia, Julieth González Therán was sexually assaulted while on camera.
She was on camera when a man grabbed her breast and kissed her cheek, but Therán maintained her composure and was able to finish her report.
