This is the moment a topless woman and her friend attacked a man who appeared to grope one of them at a New Year’s Eve music festival.
Revellers at Rhythm & Vines festival in Gisborne, on New Zealand’s North Island, watched on as a male attendee crept up behind a woman wearing only glitter on her breasts before seemingly touching her.
The astonishing clip, filmed by Gianni Reece, shows the pair turn in unison and follow the man back to his perch on the grass before launching into a surprise attack.
The man – who is wearing a blue shirt and light pink that – can be seen cowering as the topless woman throws punches and her loyal friend tosses her drink in his face.
Onlookers can be heard gasping while the two women pummel the man for several moments and a woman’s voice cries out: ‘Oh my god’.
The young man appeared to be unharmed and made no attempt to fight back as the girls completed their revenge attack.
Neither the man or the two women pictured in the video have been identified.
Footage of the incident was shared online and has since garnered thousands of views and a divided opinion on who was in the wrong.
Hundreds of commenters quickly blamed the topless woman and accused her of ‘asking for it’ due to her exposed breasts.
‘Well that’s what she gets when she wears something like that,’ one man wrote.
‘Well… when you are walking around naked you’re kinda throwing out a kinda vibe to sort of expect that,’ another man said.
The vast majority of support for the topless women came from female commenters.
‘Don’t get how this is any different to groping a girl in a bikini at the beach- still wrong,’ one woman said.
‘Good on her! No one has the right to touch you without consent! Naked or not! Learn some manners.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted the woman who filmed the footage for comment.
The iconic New Year’s Eve Rhythm and Vines festival saw some 20,000 people descend on Waiohika Estate for the three-day event.
Even New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made an appearance at the sold-out camping festival.
