Yesterday Ukrainian “prankster” Vitalii Sediuk picked up Gigi Hadid from behind as she was leaving a show during Milan Fashion Week, and she responded by throwing an elbow into his face. Vitalii recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about getting whooped by Gigi, and we finally have a reason for why he did what he did.
Someone must have told Vitalii that not a whole lot of people were laughing at his latest asshole stunt. Because Vitalii is now acting like lifting up Gigi was less of a prank and more of his way of fighting for the honor of high fashion, like some kind of obnoxious Jean Valjean. According to Vitalii, attacking Gigi as she exited a fashion show was his way of making a statement about her place in the fashion world. Sure it was, Vitalli. He also threw in some shit about Anna Wintour, Kendall Jenner, and the Kartrashians.
“While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion. By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram. You can call it a manifest or a protest. This is also a wake-up call for Anna Wintour, who turned Vogue into a tabloid by putting Kardashians and other similar celebrities on a cover of a well respected magazine.”
Does Vitalii still have use of his shoulder muscles from all that reaching? Good lord, what a convoluted excuse. He acts like the ghosts of Coco Chanel and Christian Dior entered the body of Hubert de Givenchy, Oda Mae Brown-style, and had him ban all legitimate models from the runway an ddeclare Gigi and Kendall the Official Presidents of Fashion for the remainder of time. He’s so goddamn dramatic. Ironic, since that’s something he’d never be. When asked by THR what he thinks about people who consider his latest “stunt” a form of assault, he replied: “Don’t be over-dramatic.”
Meanwhile, Ansel Elgort wondered why Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik wasn’t there to defend her honor. If you ask Gigi, it’s a good thing he wasn’t, otherwise Vitalii might have been conducting that interview with The Hollywood Reporter from the morgue.
@AnselElgort that guy should prob take some time away from icing his jaw tonight to count his lucky stars that Z wasn’t there….. ?⚰

I never really pictured Zayn as the beatdown-giving type. He just seems so tiny! But if Gigi says so. Of course, those words are totally going to come back to haunt Zayn the next time he gets knocked over with a punching bag at the gym. “Hey, you better stop laughing – my girlfriend says I could totally kick your asses!”
Here’s Gigi and Bella Hadid surrounded by a whole bunch of bodyguards while they leave another show during Milan Fashion Week earlier today.
