Brad Pitt’s Prankster Gets the Last Laugh
The infamous celebrity prankster known for harassing everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Bradley Cooper during red carpet events was spotted throwing some serious shade at his latest victim as he performed his community service duties this Wednesday. Sediuk, who sentenced three years of probation and a year’s worth of psychiatric counseling after attacking Pitt at a Maleficent premiere in May, wore a t-shirt featuring the 12 Years a Slave star on the front as he swept the pathways at Los Angeles’ Griffith Park Recreation Park.

Weeks ago, Pitt released statement about his scuffle with Sediuk, warning to Ukrainian journalist that he’ll get “stomped” if he ever decides to pull another stunt like that on any red carpet.
“I don’t mind an exhibitionist,” Pitt said. “But if this guy keeps it up he’s going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd.”
According to Sediuk, he only wanted to give the actor a hug.
“I’m a normal guy,” he told Extra. “I’m not crazy.”
Sediuk has since been banned from all Hollywood events.
