New Zealand Prime Minister John Key could be trouble after he pulled the ponytail a waitress a café. Mr Key apologised waitress Amanda Bailey posted online that the PM had pulled her hair many times when he visited the café. Ms Bailey said Mr Key started the hair-pulling last year his election campaign. She said she repeatedly told him to stop and to not do it again, but he didn't listen her. She could now take New Zealand's leader court. He could be investigated the crime of "hostile touching" if Ms Bailey goes to the police. A New Zealand legal expert said: "You have to remember this is an older white male a lot of power." He said Ms Bailey was a powerless position.

Mr Key has apologised his actions and said he was just "horsing around" (joking) the waitress. However, many people New Zealand think the apology is not enough. Women's rights campaigner Marilyn Waring told Radio New Zealand that she believed Mr Key had broken the law. She said: "I'm getting tired it being called anything illegal." New Zealand's deputy leader Tracey Martin said it was unacceptable behaviour a leader of any country. She added: "If he doesn't understand where people's personal boundaries lie, we've got some rather serious problems." The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, said: "It's never OK to touch someone their permission."
