The two were attending the David Lynch Foundation’s National Night of Laughter and Song when KeSha spotted Seinfeld, who was being interviewed by radio host Tommy McFly.
The comedian said “no thanks” several times when KeSha asked for a hug at the star-studded charity event on Monday (June 5) at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
Video shows KeSha interrupting an interview Seinfeld was doing ahead of the event. The singer wanted a hug from the comedian, but Seinfeld repeatedly declined and backed off.
“I’m Kesha, I love you so much,” she said.
“Can I give y ou a hug?”
“No, thanks,” Seinfeld replied.
Kesha may have thought he was joking, so she made another attempt saying:
“Please? A little one?”
“Yeah, no thanks,” her said, shutting her all the way down.
Seinfeld and McFly laughed about it as the TV star admitted he didn’t know who KeSha was.
McFly informed him that he had just rebuffed KeSha.
“Well, I wish her the best,” Seinfeld said.
The singer didn’t seem too upset about the encounter, as she shared a suggestive post to Twitter on Tuesday.
“Lots to smile about 🌈😻,” she wrote.
It was either a prank the two stars were playing on us, or one of the most brutal fan encounters ever.
Either way the exchange went viral.
