Twitter suspends account after topless pic at Dublin concert emerges

A picture of a young woman in her underwear at last night’s Calvin Harris gig has gone viral.

The picture shows the young woman topless and wearing just her underwear.

A man appears to be kissing her chest.

It’s been reported that the young woman was attending the Calvin Harris concert last night at the O2.

There are fears that the young woman is identifiable from the image, and fears are growing that she will be targeted online.

DJ Tiesto was the supporting act and it’s been alleged the image was taken during his set.

The image was uploaded by a Twitter user whose account has since been suspended.

Despite this, the image has gone viral and is attracting a lot of negative comment online.

In August, a similar incident occurred involving an underage schoolgirl performing a sex act on a man during the Eminem concert.

The image subsequently went viral, with the girl subjected to abuse online.

Gardai did investigate but the upset schoolgirl chose not to make an official complaint.

Calvin Harris and Tiesto played Dublin’s O2 last night.

Separately some 23 people were arrested by gardai last night – 18 were arrested for public order offences, while the remainder were arrested for drugs offences.

One garda was injured during an arrest, but did not require hospital treatment.

Concert promoters MCD issued a statement to Independent.ie this evening, saying they 'fully support' the zero tolerance approach enforced by Gardai.

"20 people were arrested within the vicinity of The Point Village last night for illegal activity/criminal behaviour. A total of 12,500 people attended the concert," a spokesperson said.

"The O2 and MCD fully support An Garda Siochana in their policing of the event and these arrests send a clear message that such activities/behaviour will not be tolerated at public events.

"We would like to thank An Garda Siochana and security staff with the success of last night's Garda operation."
