Gable Tostee, who was acquitted of murdering a New Zealand woman who tragically fell to her death from his Gold Coast balcony, has written a post claiming a topless American woman who was groped at a New Zealand festival was 'looking for a fight.'
20-year-old Madeline Anello-Kitzmiller from Portland, Oregon and her friend Kiri-Ann Hatfield, have made waves on social media after footage of Madeline slapping a man who groped her at the Rhythm and Vine festival went viral.
The video has created a divided view online, with some arguing Madeline's actions were justified as self-defence, with other's claiming she assaulted the man.

Now, Gable Tostee, who uses the alias Eric Thomas since being found not guilty of murdering his 26-year-old Tinder date Warriena Wright, has posted his opinion regarding the footage.
Tostee claims Madeline must have been 'expecting attention' by going topless, but believes both parties should be 'charged with assault.'
Posting a link to the story on Facebook, he wrote: 'First of all, let me say that everyone, no matter how they are dressed (or not dressed), has the right to not be groped or sexually assaulted, and that all blame for unprovoked assault should lie solely on the assailant and not the victim.
'But at the same time (cue the outrage), can anyone honestly tell me that this girl wasn't expecting attention by going to a public festival full of crowds of intoxicated people, wearing nothing but glitter on her tits? I personally don't have a problem with the way she was(n't) dressed, but I honestly think she was out looking for a fight, because what she did to the guy after wasn't simply self-defence, it was also assault.'
'I think it would only be fair if both the guy as well as glittertits were charged with assault,' he finished.
The New Zealand Herald spoke to Madeline regarding the incident, who revealed the man who groped her was yet to apologise 'sincerely.'
'It wasn’t sincere at all', she revealed. 'I had no idea who he was ... he just hid his face. I was walking to my campsite and saw this hand come up.'
'He got a handful of my boob. I went over and hit him.'
A fellow concert goer happened to capture the moment on film and uploaded it to Facebook, where it subsequently went viral.
