When Jews Attack 401 – Victim – America Ferrera – Attacker – Vitalii Sediuk

Well THIS just doesn’t happen at Cannes: Some guy — wearing what appeared to be official credentials — ran onto the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival and dived under America Ferrera’s tulle gown, before he was dragged off by security.

Ferrera, there with the rest of the cast for the premiere of How to Train Your Dragon 2, looked mighty upset afterwards, and no wonder. Cate Blanchett, standing next to her, was seen trying to comfort her.

The photographers went wild firing off shots. One captured a closeup of the guy’s face through the tulle netting of her full skirt. She had on a beautiful cream-colored gown, with a beaded, sleeveless bodice with a plunging scalloped neckline and a billowing skirt of the sort ballerinas used to wear.

Cannes is known for its decorum; this is France, after all. So who was this guy and why did he do it?

The Hollywood Reporter identified him as Ukrainian “prankster journalist” Vitalii Sediuk, who’s pulled self-aggrandizing stunts like this before, most recently at the 2013 Grammys when he tried to run on stage during Adele’s acceptance speech. (You’d think a Ukrainian journalist would have better things to do right now?)

In Cannes, he was dressed well like everyone else in the media pack, plus he had a lanyard with what appeared to be a credential hanging around his neck.
