The man who videobombed an ABC7 broadcast on Friday night and then shoved a reporter to the ground said he was just trying to promote his album, and that he was just trying to be friendly.
The man, Key'Jonta Foster, told the Post that he pulled the stunt in an attempt to get some press for his music career, in which he records under the name Majesty Da God.
"The reason I did it was because I knew I’d get negative feedback from it. I can always flip that," Foster told the paper. He insisted he was just trying to be friendly when he put his arm around reporter CeFaan Kim, and that Kim grabbed and shoved him first.
Foster and his record label both posted about the altercation, on Instagram and Facebook respectively:
"White guys bomb video reporters all the time. A black man tries to get air time and then gets beat up by the reporter. I’m gonna do what I gotta do and seize an opportunity," Foster told the Post in response to the question of whether he was worried about the police investigating the altercation.
