A photo posted on Instagram by TV and radio star Kate Ritchie has caused social media meltdown. Ritchie posted a picture of herself with Nova 96.9 co-host, Tim Blackwell, at a Nova Melbourne Cup function last month. But since then, a handful of the star’s 138,000 Instagram followers have pointed out something – Blackwell’s one hand was planted firmly on Richie’s behind.

“Colleague butt grab,” wrote one follower, while another asked: “Is Tim touching your arse Kate????”
“Better call HR,” quipped yet another follower, while another declared that “friends don’t touch a married woman’s ass.”

Ritchie, 38, who is also a former Home & Away star, has been married to ex-NRL player Stuart Webb since 2010, while Blackwell too is married, to a yoga teacher named Monique, reports News.com.au.

Do you think people are overacting or is it inappropriate for colleagues to do that?

    I would be surprised if he even realised he had his hand on her bum. If she was uncomfortable, I am sure she would have moved it.
