Brad Pitt
has broken his silence after an odd run-in on the red carpet last week.

The actor released a statement to “People” after being accosted by Ukrainian “prankster” Vitalii Sediuk, who has since been banned from all celebrity events in Los Angeles.

“I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice on the back of the head – not too hard – but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses.”

Sediuk’s previous “pranks” include sticking his head under America Ferrara’s dress on another red carpet and crashing the stage at the Grammys last year.

After saying the man is going to ruin it for loyal fans, Pitt warned, “And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman’s dress again, he’s going to get stomped.”

What do you think of Brad's comments?
