Brad Pitt's Attacker Vitalii Sediuk Legally Banned from All Hollywood Events

Vitalii Sediuk, the man who punched Brad Pitt in the face at the red carpet premiere of Maleficent this week, has received his sentencing for the crime.

The 25-year-old former journalist must stay 500 yards away from all Hollywood events – award shows, red carpets, entertainment events, etc.

Vitalii also received a sentencing of a “a $200 fine, 20 days of community labor and 36 months of summary probation,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. He also was “barred from owning dangerous weapons or harassing anyone and must enroll in weekly psychiatric counseling and return to court to prove he has enrolled in psychiatric counseling and community labor.”

DO YOU AGREE with the terms of Vitalii Sediuk’s sentencing?

    When he charged through security so he could stick his head under America Ferrera’s dress, he should have been charged with sexual assault. He should be in a psychiatric institution or jail.

    They keep saying he is Ukrainian, does that mean he travels with Ukrainian passport. How is he getting into all these countries. Do Ukrainians need visa to enter US. If so his visa should be denied and he should be deported back to Ukraine.

    He got away with all this crap because the celebrities he did this to didn’t want to look whinny.. Seriously they don’t have to take stuff like this to look a certain way to the public.

    saw the video of the “attack” and he didn’t really punch Brad. It looks like he grazed his face.. Brad then kicked his ass*

    He messed with the wrong man and I’m glad something has been done finally. It could have been worse and then what would people be saying then. I TAW why was he not deported..

    He is going to get hurt one day’ or hurt someone else because his antics and assaults were getting more physical.

    Brad, should have knocked his teeth out. The guy doesn’t look like he’s working with a full deck………..and people pick at stars who have security with them.

    I think this guy is a ticking time bomb and needed to be shut down. He’s getting worse. Really Scary! DEPORT HIM!

    busted Says:


    Brad protected himself. The guy’s intent was to harm him.. You see what you would do if someone came after you. LA just witnessed that psycho murder 6 people. Hell yeah I would do the same.

    Maybe if other celebs had done something this fool would have been stopped a long time ago.

    Now he is getting his due.

    Oh give me a break, Vitalii is a comic. He does it for shock value and fame. Sort of like how Brad became famous because he took off his shirt of in Thelma and Louise and shocked every woman and gay guy over his chest and not his acting. Brad has become a wuss since he hooked up with Angelina.

    T Says:

    Go see Angelina’s movie already it was more than awesome. She really hit a homerun with this movie, And what she said about her daughter and the movie was gut busting I loved it.

    @jake: Exactly. I think he probably has US citizenship or something, otherwise he’d have been deported already. Bizarre person…

    My post from the other thread . . .
    Glad that the stupid pranksters is banned from all HW events.
    I agree but remember it’s only for the length of the probation which is 36 months. Neither offense he pled No Contest to are considered grounds for removal from the country. since they involve one event they only count as one conviction for immigration purposes. The offense of battery which he pled to is not considered a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude (CIMT). If it had been domestic violence it would have been a CIMT.
    Plus he didn’t get nor was he even subject to the requisite penalty which would out offenses into the category of a CIMT.
    Removal based on criminal convictions is a bit complicated and I don’t recall what he is on probation for already but I don’t think he has a sufficient history to warrant removal – as much as we’d like to see it. Now once gone can he be subject to exclusion, i.e., prevented from re-entry? Not sure if it’s easier to exclude than it is to remove. May be easier to deny a visa. Maybe an immigration expert can weigh in.
    I saw his face and rather than a smirk I saw a guy who looked chagrinned and fatalistic. I’m not sure he meant to assault Pitt in a violent way, he wanted to get to him that’s for sure and he was stupid enough to do it by practically diving between LA police officers there to keep order. But it’s a general intent crime and therefore his intent is irrelevant.
    I call that plea quite efficient. However, I heard the judge say 100 yards not 500 yards from events, etc. I’ll go check.

    He was charged with and pled to battery which is the same thing as assault. Different jurisdictions call it by different names.
    See my post above regarding immigration consequences of his pleas.
    This guy was here on a visa – work or tourist I assume. If he no longer has a job or lied about having one or lied who he worked for then he can be removed for that. Short term visas expire – he wasn’t a permanent resident that I knew.
