An example of the kind of shameful, casual sexism that still exists in Spain.
A man approaches a female TV reporter doing a live report, touches her bum and then she calls him out on it, live on air.
The man has been detained. Sexual assault live on TV. What an idiot. https://t.co/TRZVsDGRcP

El machismo es lo que hace que periodistas tengan que sufrir agresiones sexuales como esta y que los agresores estén sin ningún tipo de remordimiento delante de la cámara. No puede quedar impune.

Labour Minister Yolanda Diaz chimed in, tweeting, “It is machismo that makes journalists suffer sexual assaults like this, and the aggressors are unrepentant in front of the camera.”
