Krystal Olsen, who according to Distractify is from Long Island, New York, has a tweet that is currently going totally viral (it's been retweeted over 80,000 times so far). The tweet's popularity is due not just to the text, but to the picture attached.
Here's what went down, according to Olsen's tweet and Distractify: Olsen was bartending when some random guy decided that it would be a cool idea to grab her butt. In turn, she put him into a chokehold, and he responded by slamming her into a wall. Then security got involved, and dude was arrested. Olsen tweeted a picture of him, handcuffed, and totally bawling.
The reactions on Twitter were mostly supportive, from women and men alike.
You are awesome and I want my daughter to grow up to be just like you.— Patrick S. Tomlinson (@stealthygeek) July 2, 2017
Don't have a daughter but if I did I'd be proud of her for defending herself as you did. Be careful out there— Laura (@virgoLauraRN) July 2, 2017
I have 3 daughters. I hope they respond the same.— Dee (@nastywomantalks) July 2, 2017
But of course there are always men who just don't get why grabbing a stranger's ass is assault.
Well, Olsen's actions are definitely a
chokehold step in the right direction.
