Erykah Badu Awkwardly Crashes TV News Live Shot by Trying to Kiss Reporter (Video)

WPIX 11 reporter Mario Diaz was doing a story on Shia LaBeouf’s recent arrest when he was interrupted


Local news reporter Mario Diaz of New York station WPIX 11 got an unwelcome surprise when R&B singer Erykah Badu interrupted him during a live report.

Diaz was in the middle of a story about former “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf‘s recent arrest, when a woman wearing a large white hat awkwardly walked into the frame, made an obscene gesture and tried to kiss him.

The incident happened during WPIX’s 5 p.m. newscast on Friday. Diaz didn’t know who the woman was — pushed her away and called her “a fan.”

A short time later, Twitter and Facebook exploded with people identifying the crasher as Erykah Badu!

The singer initially denied it was her on social media but later tweeted, “Sorry Mario.”
