Jerry Seinfeld Rejecting Kesha’s Request for a Hug is Almost Painful to Watch 

By Danielle

I live for awkward encounters…

So when I heard that Jerry Seinfeld straight up REJECTED Kesha’s request for a hug at a red carpet event – not once, not twice, but THREE times – I made it my goal to find the video (which has been removed from some sites…probably because it’s so freaking awkward).

While Jerry is being interviewed, Kesha comes into the camera shot, says ‘Oh my gosh, I love you so much!’ and asks for a hug.

Easy enough, right? Yeah…not so much.

Seinfeld politely said ‘No thanks.’ But Kesha wouldn’t give up. He denied her three times before she finally bailed, and each refusal is more awkwardly glorious than the last…

After she walks away, Jerry says he didn’t even know who she was. When the interviewer tells him it was Kesha, he doesn’t miss a beat and says  ‘Ok, well I wish her the best.’

If anyone needs me for the rest of this week, I’ll just be watching this video on repeat.

So. Painstakingly. AMAZING.
