FIFA World Cup is not only in headlines for its matches but also for something shameful reason as well. Earlier, a Russian football fan has kissed the Columbian female reporter when she was doing the live reporting. Later, he apologized for his mistake. Now, the same incident came to light from the street of Russia, where a female journalist was doing the coverage of the FIFA World Cup. This shameful and shocking incident took place on Sunday (24th June 2018).
Yes, you read right! A Brazilian journalist named Julia Guimaraes was doing the live coverage outside Russia’s Yekaterinburg. During her live video, a strange man come approached her and kissed on her cheeks. However, Julia responded immediately and pushed him and also rebuked him on the camera.
Because of live coverage, the whole incident has been captured. Guimaraes had also forced him to apologize to her immediately and also said that ‘don’t do this ever’. She also added that ‘I have not given you permission to do this. This is not a humble behaviour, not right.’ She further scolded him and said never did this with any women again.
Later, the Brazilian reporter took to Twitter and brought the issue in front of everyone.
See the video that she shared on micro-blogging site:
É difícil encontrar palavras... Por sorte, nunca vivi isso no Brasil! Aqui já aconteceu por 2 vezes. Triste! Vergonhoso! https://t.co/8sdukYw8FG— Julia Guimarães (@juliacgc) June 24, 2018
What she did with this man is really make us feel proud because she didn’ t remain silent like others who are watching the incident and keep doing their jobs calmly. However, this is not the first incident that took place in Russia. Earlier, a Columbia female journalist Julieth Gonzalez also had to face the same during FIFA World Cup match live coverage.
Well, it should not be acceptable by any woman and must raise their voices against such public place harassment.
