Can a friend (guy), hug u in front of everyone?

It happened to my friend Jane, her friend (XYZ)whom she considered only a friend came and hugged her (very passionately) in front of everybody. Obviously Jane was embarrased but she didn't react to it. She didn't want to create a scene in front of everyone and simply laughed it off. When she and XYZ were at the coffee shop that evening, she told him not to ever do that again. XYZ never spoke to JAne again. is this correct? was jane wrong in putting forward her dislike?

some people see nothing wrong with hugging the people they like. I also enjoy giving & receiving hugs, but I don't do it with everybody. some people feel like a hug invades their space. To each their own, I say. maybe her friend was just a hugger type person & the way she told him not to be hugging her hurt his feelings.
