    Kesha Reacted To The Incredibly Awkward Video Where Jerry Seinfeld Rejected Her Hug, And I Wish I Could Forget It All Over Again

    I had totally blocked this out of my mind.

    Long ago, in like 2017, there was Kesha.

    And there was Jerry Seinfeld.

    The two were at the same event, and what transpired was just so incredibly awkward.

    Kesha went up to Jerry Seinfeld and tried to get a hug:

    LAST NIGHT @KeshaRose found out @JerrySeinfeld is not a #Hugger -- Is it hard to be a non-hugger in 2017?

    It didn't go as planned.

    Kesha tried to get a hug.

    And Jerry wasn't having it at all.

    One of the most iconic "no thanks" of all time.

    The clip went viral and was even made into a mural in Australia.

    And now, four years later, Kesha is reliving the awkward moment all over again.

    I applaud Kesha for facing her past trauma head on.

    Though it's safe to say that clip makes the both of us feel incredibly awkward.
