French tennis player Maxime Hamou embraced his inner Joe Namath this weekend after he forcibly tried to make out with a reporter.
After his French Open loss to Pablo Cuevas, 21-year-old Maxime Hamou was interviewed by reporter Maly Thomas. For some reason, Hamou decided to kiss Thomas, who clearly wanted no part of that.
That did not stop Hamou from going in for a second and even a third unwanted kiss, even as Thomas tried to pull away from him.
The French Open revoked Hamou’s accreditation, banning him from the tournament. The French Tennis Federation released a statement calling Hamou’s behavior “reprehensible.”
Why the hell would this guy risk his livelihood by kissing some lame-ass reporter?
Oh… point taken.
