New Zealand Bachelorette star Lily McManus has alerted her fans to a dangerous TikTok trend encouraging men to commit sexual assault.
Hysteria swept social media last month when six unidentified men allegedly posted a TikTok video calling for April 24 to be named 'National Rape Day.'
The video has since been deemed a 'hoax' as there is no evidence of it existing, but that hasn't stopped social media users from expressing their fears for the wellbeing of women and children.

Weighing in on the discussion on Tuesday, Lily, 24, branded the sickening 'National Rape Day' trend as 'f**ked, and revealed her close friend was actually the victim of a drink-spiking incident on April 24.
Posting to Instagram Stories, Lily explained that her friend was visiting a bar on the Gold Coast when she was approached by a group of five men.
'Apparently the best looking [guy] stood right in front of her, stood really close to her face and told her she was beautiful over and over again whilst asking for her Instagram.'

While Lily's friend shrugged off the encounter as simply 'creepy', she later learned that the men were secretly spiking her drink.
'What she didn't know, was that whilst one guy was up in her face distracting her, another had come in from beside her and slipped something into her drink. All whilst the other boys stood around to block the action from anyone seeing,' Lily revealed.
'Within half an hour she couldn't walk, she was vomiting, she couldn't see and remembers nothing from that point in the night onwards.'
