Prankster Vitalii Sediuk claims that he was trying to send an empowering message to young girls by claiming Kim’s famous looks are fake, according to sources.

Sediuk kissed Kim’s buttcheeks during Paris Fashion week yesterday morning. He told AP that the kiss was in protest ‘to popularize natural beauty among teenage girls’.

Even though he’s claiming such a noble cause was his reason behind the sudden tush lunging incident, he said he didn’t actually plan it in advance.

He told the AP that it was simply a “coincidence” that he and Kim just happened to cross paths at her favorite Parisian restaurant L’Avenue, with the huge crowd of fans gathered outside to await her arrival, according to sources.
