Maura wrote alongside the primary pic: “For people who suppose this doesn’t occur… I can guarantee you it does! Here is a picture of me leaving a venue after the NTAs – this man that I’ve by no means met in my life grabbed maintain of my arm and tried to tug me again in direction of his automobile.

“As you can see I am smiling & the reason being is because pictures can be portrayed very differently i.e.. if I was to shout in anger at this guy, the headline might have been ‘Maura gets violent after a night out’ it’s more opportunity for clickbait.”

“Luckily these three males had been behind me, these outdated males, they usually requested if I was alright they usually walked with me a bit, so this man then began on these three males and he simply wouldn’t go away me alone, so that they tried to again him off a bit whereas I ran.”

She continued: “This is three events now that this week that males have both mentioned one thing to me or harassed me, what provides them the best? I simply don’t even have any phrases. I’m simply appalled.”
