You can’t just hit Brad Pitt in the face and sneak under America Ferrera’s dress and get away with it.
That’s the lesson Ukranian TV host Vitalii Sediuk learned in an East Los Angeles courthouse when the prankster — who allegedly attacked Pitt at Wednesday’s premiere of Maleficent and exhibited some truly bizarre behavior under Ms. Ferrera’s outfit at the Cannes Film Festival — was ordered to stay at least 500 yards away from all awards shows, entertainment events, and red carpets.
In addition, Sediuk was sentenced to a $200 fine, 20 days of community labor, and 36 months of summary probation. He must also partake in weekly psychiatric counseling once a week for a year (and prove his enrollment in court) and is barred from owning any dangerous weapons. Sediuk had already lost his job at the Ukrainian TV network 1+1 after the Ferrera incident. As a reminder of his Cannes stunt, see the unsettling photo below:
