A woman has been slammed after a video circulated of her planting lipstick marks on the back of unsuspecting men during a drunken night out.

The incident occurred at a Sydney Irish bar over the weekend while revellers celebrated St Patrick's Day.

The video, which appears to be filmed by her friend, shows the young woman applying fresh lipstick before navigating through the crowded dance floor kissing men wearing white shirts.

The plan, it seems, is to leave an obvious lipstick stain on the clothes of men without their knowledge, but the move has outraged many.

While the "lipstick bandit," as she's being referred to online, and her friends evidently find the act hilarious, with the woman shown laughing as she moves around the room, others think it's "disrespectful."

Many pointed out the issues it could cause for men in relationships who are innocently enjoying a night out with friends.

The issue, they say, is that women's lipstick on their clothes makes these men look like they've been unfaithful to their partners when this simply wasn't the case.

And the worst part is that most seem completely unaware of the kiss planted on their back, so explaining it could prove tricky.

'Lipstick bandit' criticised on social media

People who saw the clip on TikTok suggested relationships could "be hurt" and that the single act could be "messing with dudes lives."

"This is terrible, she ruined a lot of relationships," one said.

"Why would you deliberately ruin someone's trust, destroy relationships and think it's funny?" fumed another.

Others deemed it "gross behaviour" insisting "this isn't funny" as the video continues to be shared across the platform.

While most seem concerned about the impact it could have on relationships, some took aim at the move for other reasons.

The act was considered "harassment" by many who argued it's "never ok" to touch someone "without their permission.

"Why do people think it's ok to touch people without their permission?" one questioned.

"Guys going around kissing random girls on the back wouldn't be ok. Neither is this," stated another.

"Ummm she's kissing him without consent… also ruining his shirt," a third pointed out.
