Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

I'm no legal expert, but I do know that what she did is wrong.

Despite the article's claim that the victim is an adult, other sources have identified her as a 17 year old.

Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

March 18, 2016

A Queensland law expert says Madonna has committed an act of sexual assault if the fan she exposed to the world did not consent.

The queen of pop is under fire for pulling down the top of a female fan she had invited onto the stage in Brisbane on Thursday night. The woman in question was not wearing a bra.

University of Queensland law expert Dr Paul Harper says on face value, pulling down a woman's top in public to expose their breast is an act of sexual assault, if it's non-consensual.

The TC Beirne School of Law lecturer said the person who has been violated must make a complaint for police to act.

"The woman is going to have to put a complaint in," Dr Harper told AAP.

"The issue is, has the girl consented? By going up on stage you consent to some physical contact... you don't expect to be exposed at a Madonna concert.

"If the woman doesn't consent then it's sexual assault. It essentially carries jail time, but even if they press charges the lady, realistically, may suddenly consent.

"The police aren't going to do anything about it unless she complains because she is an adult and also you don't know what was said on stage. You'd assume not all the discourse would be between Madonna and the girl. The security people may have said something was going to happen and do you mind."

The latest stunt by Madonna has not gone down well.

UK commentator Piers Morgan has called on the Material Girl to cancel her tour because she's having a "meltdown".

Madonna was some two-and-a-half hours late on stage on Wednesday for her first Brisbane concert, while being four hours late on stage for a Melbourne show last week.

The video of Madonna pulling down the woman's top has gone viral and Morgan tweeted on Friday, "Madonna is in total meltdown. She needs to cancel this tour asap."

Judging by Madonna's comments on stage on Thursday, she knew was treading close to the line or even crossing it when she exposed the woman's breast at the Brisbane's Entertainment Centre in front of thousands of fans.

"She is the kind of girl you just want to slap on the ass and pull oh s***," Madonna is heard saying in a video which has gone viral.

"Sorry, sexual harassment. You can do the same to me," Madonna says after pulling down the top.

Commentators have tried to rationalise Madonna's diva behaviour by saying she is going through a tough custody battle with her ex-husband Guy Ritchie over their 15-year-old son Rocco.

There are just two tour dates remaining on the star's Rebel Heart world tour, which kicked off in September in North America and ends on Sunday at Sydney's Allphones Arena.

Her last two concerts, on Saturday and Sunday, will also be filmed for a DVD.

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

why is the law expert in the title? Wouldn't the Madonna bit be the title based on what you're trying to sell the reader to engage in the material? The law expert has no action to be there unless you put in a form that they say Madonna did the act. To which that part then makes sense to title. Your current title is flawed and doesn't perform well in being a title.

Are you selling a product? Is this the law expert edition of Madonna committing the act?

Get your shit together, grundle.

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

It turned out she pulled 17 years old fan's top... does it counted as child porno?

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

I don't know the law in Australia either, but since Dr. Morgan diagnosed her as having a meltdown, I hope she gets the help she needs.

Saw the video. Pft. It was a fucking accident. And she immediately was sorry about it. It was a fucking innocent slip up.

Fucking grundle here doesn't have balls to get his shit straight instead just comes off sucking the dick of clickbait.

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

I saw the video too... it was only accidental in that it seemed Madonna didn't know the chick wasn't wearing a bra. However, she definitely meant to pull the top down.

But even if the chick was wearing a bra - you can't just pull someone's top down without permission (whether that's still considered sexual assault or not).

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

That is also true. It was still fine. Madonna committed a bad and apologized. Hopefully Madonna doesn't do something like that again cuz it is kind of rude of her to do so. And could gone bad for her. It was stupid.

And the world goes on still.

Re: Madonna commits sexual assault: law expert

She's only 17. She said it was the best experience of her life, she loves Madonna, and has absolutely no intention to sue.

It's still sexual assault, though. Just saying.

Only if she files a compliant. And she's not going to. So it's not. Just saying.

She's an adult. Age of consent there is 16.

The teenage girl, 17, who Madonna stripped on stage in Brisbane says she doesn't think her boobs are 'such a big deal' - and her proud mother says she is 'thrilled to bits and had the time of her life'

Zod is right that the AOC is 16.

Here she is with her 24 year old "male friend."

I don't get where age of consent figures in. If I'm a performer and a girl comes up on stage and I pull her top down, it's sexual assault, whether she likes it or not.

Here's the young waif who has had her innocence ripped away by the liberal demonic rapist known as Madonna.

If the girl doesn't care, I don't see why it's an issue.

What if she did care? Then what would we be saying about Madonna? "Eh, no big deal."?

Watch it again. What was she trying to pull down if it wasn't her top?

After Madonna pulled it down the girl put her hand to her mouth like "tee hee" and then hugged Madonna with a big smile on her face.

But she doesn't. So what's the point of the hypothetical?

Because regardless of how the girl feels about it, it's still sexual assault. I am not saying Madonna should be prosecuted or anything, but it IS sexual assault.

"Eh, this guy raped and beat me. But I guess it was kinda cool. Soooo....it doesn't really matter."

That's the point.

Of course not, why would you assume that? If she did care and actually wanted to file some sort of complaint or suit against Madonna the thread would certainly be more warranted and worth a discussion.
