We all know Erykah Badu is a playful soul, but a reporter got a little more than he bargained for during a recent broadcast about another celebrity behaving badly.
In the middle of his report on actor Shia Labeouf, Pix 11’s Mario Diaz had to fend off an overzealous heckler—Erykah Badu. While reporters are often interrupted by pranksters and those looking to get on TV, I’m not sure a celebrity has ever gotten in on the joke.
In a Vine clip titled “Crazy woman attacks reporter” posted by a user named Ivory Coast, Badu is seen smiling, making hand gestures, and walking through the shot behind Diaz. If that wasn’t comical enough, the singer then tries to kiss Diaz while he’s on-air. The reporter brushes her off, but not before hilarious encounter is caught on tape.
After being asked by a fan if it was indeed Badu caught on camera she initially (and jokingly) said no, but apologized to Diaz on Twitter.
@MarioPIX11 sorry Mario. :-)))))
