It may seem obvious, but grabbing random women at bars without their permission isn't OK. It's assault. But what seems obvious to us isn't all that obvious to everyone. So when one Twitter user shared a photo of the guy who allegedly harassed her during a night out on Twitter after she was done with him, people kinda loved it.
Krystal Olsen from Long Island, New York, shared the photo of the teary eyed man who she alleges grabbed her inappropriately. In response, she reportedly took him out of the bar in a choke hold, where he pushed her against a wall. Olsen said the man was arrested and shared a photo of him "crying like a bitch" while in handcuffs.
Olsen captioned the shot: "This guy grabbed my ass, I dragged him out in a chokehold, he slammed me into a wall. And is crying like a b*tch when he got arrested."
In further tweets, the New York native explained that she's a bartender and that the man was a customer. The photo was sent to her by the bar's security guard after the man was detained.
Obviously, Olsen's tweet quickly went viral with over 300,000 likes and thousands of comments.
And the women of Twitter seem to have a new hero, though not everyone seemed to agree with Olsen's methods.
Actually the head of security did and sent it to me bahaha but I was standing right there when he did it— knockout (@knockoutxo) July 1, 2017
Olsen went on to say she was "scrappy" in further tweets.
Many men also voiced their support for Olsen.

I've been trying to get my 10 year old daughter to take a self defense course. Is there a martial art style you'd recommend?— Joe Beernink (@JoeBeernink) July 2, 2017
When does she get her national holiday?
But then the critics came, arguing that Olsen was "overreacting" and suggested the customer's actions shouldn't have been deemed as an assault.
Men don't get to touch what they want whenever they want and get a simple slap on the wrist. He assualted her so she assaulted him back— Em (@wallywalberg) July 1, 2017
Though Olsen seemed to have plenty of supporters to put her hates in their place.
Groping someone without consent is literally the definition of sexual assault.— Kelly Ellis (@justkelly_ok) July 1, 2017
It's beyond disturbing to me that so many Guys do not understand what sexual assault is.— Brianna Wu (@Spacekatgal) July 2, 2017
Girrrrllllll I once commented on a video showing this happening, and my mentions from dumbasses on it are still going a year later.— Kelly Ellis (@justkelly_ok) July 2, 2017
This guy didn't seem to understand the response, either.
So he couldn't have just left her alone or something? He had to go straight for her ass?— Chestnut (@chestnutdrag) July 1, 2017
Don't assault someone and they won't need to defend themselves. Case closed. Open & shut. That simple. Don't grab strangers.— Cait (@itsjustcaaitlin) July 1, 2017
Justice is served.
