Brad Pitt was on the red carpet for his wife Angelina Jolie‘s new movie, Maleficent (which my boyfriend is still dying to see, and we will see it this weekend just so he can calm the eff down) when apparently, he was met by merry prankster Vitalii Sediuk. You know, the merry “prankster” who pulled such “pranks” as diving under America Ferrera‘s dress, or shoving his face into Leonardo DiCaprio‘s crotch. You know. “Pranks”. Anyway, for his latest prank, he decided to punch Brad in the face because oh ho ho, what a merry “PRANK” that apparently is. Page Six reports …

Pitt, a Golden Globe-winning actor, was at the premiere of Maleficent, at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, California, when Vitalii Sediuk leaped over a fence and hit him, said Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Gus Villanueva. Pitt was not seriously hurt and authorities quickly subdued Sediuk, who was arrested for misdemeanor battery and remained in police custody on Wednesday night, Villanueva said. Sediuk is now being held pending payment of $20,000 bail. “The officers who were handling him said it looked like it was intentional, but at this point, it remains to be determined,” said Sergeant Leonard Calderon for LAPD Hollywood.

In case I didn’t make this perfectly clear up above, I don’t think Sediuk is a “prankster” so much as I think he’s an asshole famewhore who doesn’t understand personal boundaries. You know what is a prank? Putting saran wrap on the toilet, or tying a rubber band around the sprayer head of a friend’s sink. You know, stuff like that. You know what someone calls it when you throw yourself under a woman’s dress, stick your face in a stranger’s crotch without consent and punch someone in the face? Harassment and assault. Unless it’s April Fool’s Day. That’s kind of your anything-goes day.
