That was definitely a brutal rejection! It went viral and overnight everybody who has internet knew that Jerry Seinfeld denied Kesha a hug in front of the camera. It looked very brutal and Kesha was disappointed. But Jerry Seinfeld is one of the best comedians of all time and he is 63 years old. So he doesn’t know every pop star there is out there. And he is allowed to not hug people if he so desires. He says Kesha and he laughed about it afterwards, but he still didn’t give her a hug. As for his reputation as a non-hugger, he hugged the interviewer twice in this video so… But admittedly, they’ve known each other for twenty years.
