Shocking scene. While journalist Julia Guimarães covered the pre-game between the team of Japan and Senegal in Yekaterinburg, a supporter tries to kiss her on the cheek. A gesture that aroused her
indignation by this joke of very bad taste. The reporter firmly told off the young man with a lecture on good manners and what should not be done to a woman. » This is not polite » she is seen mouthing off mic to the supporter, « I do not allow you to do this. Never again. » It is unclear wether the young man apologized or not.
The reporter took to her Twitter to express her anger. « It’s hard to find words … Luckily, I have never experienced that in Brazil. Here [in Russia] it has happened twice. Sad ! Shameful! » She wrote, with a video post.
É difícil encontrar palavras… Por sorte, nunca vivi isso no Brasil! Aqui já aconteceu por 2 vezes. Triste! Vergonhoso! https://t.co/8sdukYw8FG

Indeed, this is the second incident of its kind in this World Cup. On June 14, another reporter was subjected to similar behavior. Colombian Julieth Gonzalez Theran was sexually assaulted by another « supporter » when she was live in the « fan zone » of the city of Saransk. The crazy fan planted a kiss on the young woman’s cheek and groped her breast without her consent .
