A 2014 clip of Mel B being groped on live TV circulated on social media over the weekend angering many Twitter users. During an interview for The Xtra Factor with Sarah-Jane Crawford, X Factor judges Mel B, Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole were talking to Sarah-Jane Crawford, Walsh had his hand around Mel B’s waist and then he grabbed her backside.
Mel B was noticeably uncomfortable and stopped the interview telling Crawford, "hold on a second." Mel B then asked Louis, "Why are you grabbing my butt?"
Louis replied that he was “looking after Mel B”, but was then scolded by host Sarah-Jane to keep his “hands where we can see them please!”
Twitter users didn’t laugh off the incident with one user tweeting, "Man Louis Walsh touching Mel b like that is so not ok. If he has the balls to do something like that in public. God knows what he's up to in private..." Neither Mel B or Louis Walsh have commented on the resurfaced video.
