Vitalii actually has a history of targeting celebrities for laughs. In September 2016, during Milan Fashion Week, he snuck up behind Gigi Hadid and picked her up. The supermodel didn’t hesitate as she began to elbow him in the face until he let go.

"While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner have nothing to do with high fashion. By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.

This year, Gigi thwarted the efforts of another prankster at the Chanel spring/summer show during Paris Fashion Week. She kicked a French YouTuber and comedian out after she jumped on stage and pretended to be a model.
