Several women commended Olsen for matching the man’s aggressiveness with a physical response of her own.
“If more men got their a**** beat for for harassing/assaulting women they’d learn quickly that a woman’s body belongs to no one but herself,” wrote one commenter, quoting Olsen’s tweet.
“I have three daughters,” wrote one concerned parent. “I hope they do the same.”
“You are awesome and I want my daughter to grow up to be just like you,” offered another user. Many sentiments regarding Olsen’s incident were overwhelmingly supportive.
