Guy Left In Tears After Trying To Grope Woman, But Not Everyone Agrees She Has Right To Fight Back Like That

Ladies, too many of us have been there. We’re just having a drink at the bar, or dancing at the club, and some jerk comes over and starts putting his hands wherever he pleases. It just happened to Krystal Olsen, a bartender from New York who works in Arizona, but the way she handled it is something we all need to take notes on.

In the aftermath of the incident, the creep ended up arrested and, hilariously, crying on the ground. His impromptu phone camera mugshot has gone insanely viral on Twitter, with almost 80 thousand retweets and over 355 thousand likes. Though some negative reactions have rolled in from people who clearly don’t understand the meaning of sexual assault, Krystal has been overwhelmingly praised, and her experience is highly teachable.

It’s horrible and shameful that women in 2017 still live with the constant threat of sexual assault, but it’s a reality we don’t have to accept quietly. Learning to defend ourselves is an indispensable skill that can stop attackers in their tracks, and these 5 simple moves are a great place to start. Find out what Krystal did below, read the Internet’s reactions, then add yours at the end!

This NY woman bartending in Arizona had a rough Saturday night, and the result of it has gone viral

The overwhelming majority of the Twittersphere gave her a well-deserved standing ovation…

… But some people were a little unclear on the definition of sexual assault, and had other thoughts

With sexual assault still a top concern for women in 2017, self-defense is more necessary than ever

What do you think? Was she right to fight back, or did she go too far? Tell us in the comments!

Did she have a right? I think she had a right, then a left, followed by a quick right-left combo.

Indeed! It is called "self defense".She has the right to defend her PRIVATE parts. She has also avoided the typical "misunderstanding" according to which speaking the word "no" is not enough to stop an unwanted behavior. No one would argue about her reaction had he tried to steal her wallet. She has the right to protect her body and preserve her well-being, she could do it by herself and I hope the moron sitting on the sidewalk has learned a lesson.
