erykah badu kiss news anchor reporter on air Erykah Badu kisses news reporter during live broadcastSinger 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.
