Video of Scary Spice Groped on Live TV By X-Factor Judge Resurfaces, Sparks New Debate
A video of Scary Spice being groped by an X-Factor judge on live TV resurfaced recently and has gone viral, sparking a whole new debate.
The 2014 video shows Mel B calling out X-Factor judge Louis Walsh for touching her inappropriately on live TV during an interview with host Sarah-Jane Crawford and guests Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.
The awkward clip resurfaced Sunday after a user on Twitter posted it saying, "sexual harassment on live TV folks."

When Mel B realized that she was being touched inappropriately, she stopped the interview, and said, "Why are you grabbing my butt?"
Walsh then responded that he was just looking out for Mel B.
Crawford tried to move on from the moment telling Walsh, "Louis! Hands where we can see them please!"
Cowell said, "Honestly you're safe."
Mel B then scooted away from Walsh, only for Walsh to scoot right next to her again.
The video's attention follows the recent #Metoo movement, an international campaign against sexual harassment and assault.
Neither Mel B or Walsh have responded to the resurfacing of the video. You can read other's responses on the Tweet above.
