Singer Erykah Badu was walking down the street while New York newscaster Mario Diaz was giving a live broadcast. But instead of strolling right by him and waving to the camera, like most attention-seekers, she tried to give him a kiss — and was brutally rebuffed.
Diaz’s NYC instincts kicked in, and he shoved the singer away while still giving his report like a pro.
At the time, Diaz didn’t realize it was her — and neither did a viewer who captured the encounter on Vine, which also includes a rude gesture at the camera. But later, Badu tweeted at the reporter, who tweeted a nice message back in return.
@fatbellybella I get it because…
“Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with I just want your extra time and your….. kiss”
