Here’s yet another reminder that it’s never okay to touch someone without their permission—no matter what they are or aren’t wearing.
Twenty-year-old Madeline Anello-Kitzmiller showed up topless to the annual Rhythm and Vines festival in Gisborne, New Zealand, her breasts covered only in some glitter. She and her friend, Kiri-Ann Hatfield, were walking through the festival when a man ran up behind her, grabbed her breast, and ran away. The two women simultaneously turned around, marched over to where the man was sitting, threw a drink in his face, and began punching him.
The entire event is captured on film you can watch below.
Reactions of people on social networks are diverse. But important this is that person who goes topless, or naked is not asking to be touched. Just think of Burning Man vibes.This is just never okay.
