If you're yet to start watching Netflix latest original series GLOW, the narrative focusses on a group of 12 female misfits in the 1980s who reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, wearing all the glitter and spandex you could wish for from a Flashdance-inspired wardrobe.

Commenting on the likes of misogyny, gender imbalance, abortion and post-birth bodies, GLOW serves as the perfect platform to show that arse-kicking women can be warriors in the wrestling ring, as well as in the boardroom and at home.

In the beginning of the series, the women struggle to grapple with wrestling moves such as the chokeslam, brainbuster and backbreaker, but we have a feeling they need only have asked New York bartender Krystal Olsen for her advice on how to deal with an attacker.

Over the weekend, the female bartender took to Twitter to share her recent experience of a male customer sexually assaulting her during a shift.

She tweeted a mugshot of the customer, which was reportedly sent to her by the arresting officer (legend), and explained exactly how she handled the situation:

She 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.'

As a result of Olsen's bravery and badass self-defence moves, her tweet quickly went viral, with several men and women taking to social media to congratulate the bartender on her quick-thinking.

However, Olsen's picture didn't go down well with some (ignorant) social media users, who accused her of 'overreacting' and suggested the customer's actions shouldn't have been deemed as an assault.

Fortunately, Olsen had a group of supporters on hand to educate those who seemed to be confused that a lack of consent isn't okay.
