Assault is funny if it's on the red carpet, as Jessica Williams found out

Guys, stop harassing female celebrities.

Don't hassle Jessica Williams with your nonsense.Getty Images


As if being rich and famous isn’t already enough, it comes with all kinds of perks like free swag and VIP access to pretty much anywhere — but not to other people’s bodies, which certain men have been forgetting recently.

Last week, Uma Thurman felt “violated” after Italian entrepreneur Lapo Elkann kissed her onstage during an auction. Now, it’s “Daily Show” correspondent Jessica Williams who’s calling out some bad behavior.

Williams was on the red carpet at the Peabody Awards on Saturday night when “all of a sudden, this guy, this popular actor comes up behind me and just grabs me and just pulls me in towards him,” New York Magazine reports. “I was literally talking to somebody, and was like, ‘What? What is happening?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, girl. You fine.’”

According to Williams, the incident was laughed off “because he’s a great actor.” But things could’ve gone very differently: “If I was at a fucking bodega in Harlem and this happened to me, I would literally stab you.”
