New Zealand's leader is in trouble. He pulled a waitress' hair many times. She posted this online. She said it started last year. She told him to stop often, but he didn't listen. She could take him to court. A legal expert said Mr Key was "an older white male with a lot of power". He said Ms Bailey was powerless.

Mr Key apologised. He said he was just joking. People think the apology is not enough. A women's rights group said Mr Key broke the law and what he did was illegal. New Zealand's deputy leader said it was unacceptable behaviour. She said Mr Key should know this. An equal rights group said touching people was wrong.
