To which a shy-looking host responded, "Thank You." Despite her visible discomfort, he continued on, stating, "She's so beautiful. Let's get out of here, let's go have lunch. My god, I love her. Look how beautiful she is. God, I love her. Wow."

The YouTuber tried to change the subject, but he persisted with this behaviour.

A clip of the interview was shared to X. The user who shared the video gave their own commentary, writing, "I gotta say, I’ve always had a weird feeling about Vin Diesel since I saw this video years back. While disappointing, I can’t say that the news surrounding him rn is all that surprising."

"Yup. That video turned me right off of him. Disrespectful, unprofessional and predatory," one user wrote.

"Literally just trying to do her job by interviewing him and he’s making it impossible by being a creep," a third penned.

Vin Diesel has been accused of sexual assault by his former assistant Atsa Jonasson.
