The prankster has been identified as Marie Benoliel, 28, best known as Marie S’Infiltre, who has nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram. Marie also has a YouTube channel with 227,000 subscribers.

In video obtained by TMZ, Gigi is seen getting in S’Infiltre’s face before putting her hand on the comedian’s shoulder to escort her off the runway.

Some of the big names to attend the show include Cardi B and Anna Wintour.

It wasn’t the first time that Gigi has confronted a prankster. In 2016, she elbowed Vitali Sediuk after he tried to grab her as she was walking to her chauffeured car in Milan.

Having strutted her stuff on the runway at the Max Mara fashion show, she posed for selfies with fans right before her run-in with Sediuk.

In response to Sediuk’s actions, Gigi elbowed him to free herself from his grasp. In a video, obtained by TMZ, she screamed to Sediuk, “Who the f**k are you? You piece of sh*t.” Sediuk left the scene.

Gigi then asked a man, “Can you go find that guy?” Gigi's sister Bella was also present when the incident took place.

Hadid took to Twitter to explain her actions, tweeting, "and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho 👊🏼😏🐱."

Bella addressed the scare that Gigi experienced, telling “Extra” at the Global Lyme Disease Alliance gala in New York City, “Your first instinct isn’t really 'an attacker is coming to attack my sister!' I went to go grab him, but Gigi was already showing off her moves, so I was like, 'Step back for a second.' She almost killed him.”

Sediuk was known for pranking celebs, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian, America Ferrera and Will Smith on the red carpet over the years.
