Yekaterinburg [Russia], June 26 (ANI): Júlia Guimaraes, a Brazilian sports journalist was lauded for her reaction towards a man who tried to kiss her while she was reporting for the World Cup in Yekaterinburg.
On Sunday, Júlia was reporting when a man leaned in to kiss her on the cheek as she was speaking on camera.
When the man backed away, the TV Globo and SportTV journalist stopped her report and rebuked the man.
"Don't do this! Never do this again," she shouted at the man, who can be heard apologizing in the clip. "Don't do this, I don't allow you to do this, never, OK? This is not polite, this is not right. Never do this to a woman, OK? Respect," CNN quoted Júlia as saying.
Taking to Twitter, she said, "It's hard to find the words ... Luckily, I have never experienced this in Brazil. Over here it has happened twice. Sad! Shameful!"
Júlia claimed she was harassed during the opening game of the World Cup between Russia and Egypt in Moscow also.
