Guimaraes dodged the unwanted kiss and stopped her report to blast the man for his actions.
“Don’t do this! Never do this again,” Guimaraes yelled. “I don’t allow you to do that, never. This is not right, never do this. Never do this to a woman, OK?
“Respect,” the reporter said.
Another female journalist was groped and kissed on live television while covering the World Cup.
Julieth Gonzalez Theran, a reporter for German TV news channel Deutsche Welle, was broadcasting from Manezhnaya Square when a man rushed into the frame and grabbed Theran’s breast while kissing her on the cheek.

The Colombian native posted a video of the attack on her Instagram, saying “RESPECT! We do not deserve this treatment.”
“We are equally valuable and professional,” Theran wrote. “I share the joy of football, but we must identify the limits of affection and harassment.”
Deutsche Welle also condemned the attack on the reporter, saying it was “not a kiss, it is a non-consensual attack.”
“Sexual harassment is not okay. It needs to stop. In football, and elsewhere,” Deutsche Welle Sports wrote on social media.
Theran told Deutsche Welle that she had been preparing for the live broadcast for two hours without interruption.
“When we went live, this fan took advantage of the situation,” she said. “But afterwards, when I checked to see if he was still there, he was gone.”
“For me it is an isolated incident,” Theran added. “There are always fans that compliment you and behave respectfully. This one went too far.”
