Vitalii Sediuk is still pulling stunts—only this time, it's on a much smaller scale.

The ex-journalist performed community service at Griffith Park Recreation in L.A. Wednesday. Sediuk wore a tank top featuring a photo of Brad Pitt, which was featured December 2011 cover of Vanity Fair.

Sediuk, 25, was fined $200 and ordered to perform 20 days of community labor after he attacked Pitt at the Maleficent premiere May 28. The notorious red carpet prankster was also given 36 months of summary probation and banned from attending all Hollywood events. Prior to that, Sediuk was fired from Ukraine's 1+1 TV channel after crawling under America Ferrera's dress at the Cannes Film Festival.

What did Pitt think of the incidents?

"I was at the end of the line signing autographs, when out the corner of my eye I saw someone stage-diving over the barrier at me. I took a step back; this guy had latched onto my lapels," he said June 2.

"I looked down and the nutter was trying to bury his face in my crotch, so I cracked him twice in the back of the head—not too hard—but enough to get his attention, because he did let go. I think he was then just grabbing for a hand hold because the guys were on him, and he reached up and caught my glasses." The 50-year-old World War Z actor and father of six continued to condemn Sediuk's behavior, saying, "I don't mind an exhibitionist, but if this guy keeps it up he's going to spoil it for the fans who have waited up all night for an autograph or a selfie, because it will make people more wary to approach a crowd. And he should know, if he tries to look up a woman's dress again, he's going to get stomped."

Angelina Jolie addressed Sediuk's actions during a Maleficent press junket in Shanghai June 2. "People like that are an exception to the rule," she said. "Most fans are just wonderful. We've had a wonderful experience over the years, and we're very grateful for their support, and it will not change the way we behave." Jolie added that Pitt is a "strong man" who handled the situation "perfectly."
