A British news agency has denied being part of the "Glittery March for Consent" after the march's organiser said the news agency "founded" the event.
The Wireless reports Madeline Anello-Kitzmiller, 20, said the idea for the march had been initiated by Caters following a groping scandal involving her at Rhythm and Vines.

Ms Anello-Kitzmiller was groped by an unnamed man at the festival and footage of her attacking him in response went viral worldwide.
The footage was licensed by Caters, meaning Ms Anello-Kitzmiller received money for the footage and news outlets would have to pay Caters to use it in articles.
After the footage was bought, Ms Anello-Kitzmiller said Caters suggested she make a series of other videos to sell them and eventually the idea for the march was born.
According to Ms Anello-Kitzmiller, originally Caters asked her to walk down Queen St with body paint and, when she refused, it was suggested she walk with some friends, which she also declined.
"Again I told them no, that their intentions didn't correlate with my own. That if they truly wanted to make a difference there would be a march or a protest," she said.
"That's how the idea came about."
Caters told The Wireless it had plans to shoot photos and video for the march, but denied being involved in the founding.
