What an idiot.
Do you know who Maxime Hamou is? If your answer is, “who the hell is Maxime Hamou,” you would have the same answer tons of people would have. The reality is that no one knew who he was yesterday, but today they sure do as he has been kicked out of the French Open.
Hamou is a 21-year-old tennis player who is ranked No. 287 in the world. Although his reputation took a bigger hit recently when he grabbed reporter Maly Thomas of Eurosport during an interview, pulled her close, kissed her temple and kissed her neck as well.
Take a look at the extremely cringeworthy scene that played out:
Tennis Player Booted Out Of French Open For Groping And Kissing Reporter During Interview
Another controversy concerning a French wild-card: yesterday, Hamou forced Maly Thomas (Eurosport) into his arms. Thomas not on site today. pic.twitter.com/248fbjgA0k

Not very smart, dude. Here’s what the French tennis federation had to say:
“The management of the tournament has decided to revoke Maxime Hamou’s accreditation following his reprehensible behavior with a journalist yesterday.”
In other words, Hamou was given the boot and banned from the French Open for his utter stupidity.
So far Hamou has not released a statement.
