The Fast and The Furious superstar Vin Diesel just went “too fast too furious” with a Brazilian Brazilian YouTuber Carol Moreira. He rides like a boss, sitting in his monster muscle ride, but this time he went a bit too far complementing the interviewer. The 49-year old actor was accused of harassing Moreira live in an interview and called her f**king beautiful.
The actor put her in a very awkward position when he discussed his 1998 film “Saving Private Ryan”. And then his vision got quite physical.
“God, you’re so beautiful,” Diesel said in a report byVariety.
“God, she’s so beautiful. Am I right or wrong? I mean look at her. How am I supposed to do this interview?” he added.
The awkwardness reached a new level when Diesel asked her for lunch on live camera.
“Tell me your story. Let’s get out of here. Let’s go. Let’s go have lunch.” he said.
“My God, I love her!” he added.
According to a report filed by IBT Times, Moreira admitted that she was uncomfortable after Diesel made sexual advances.
“He began to hit on me in the middle of the interview, say that I was pretty, and he interrupted the interview three times to talk about it. I was laughing, completely uncomfortable. I was not sure what to do,” Moreira said in the report.
“I just laughed because it was a very delicate situation. I did not like it. At the time I did not know how to react, but you will see that I was uncomfortable, it was not nice that he interrupted my work,” she added.
And all we were waiting for was the social media backlash. Twitterati’s reaction was direct and hit the arrow at the center of the board. The actor was counter-blasted over his ticklish remarks and openly flirting with her.
“Please don’t support Vin Diesel’s work. A Brazilian Youtuber did an interview with him and he left her extremely uncomfortable,” tweeted a user.
