Mel C says that the Spice Girls never experienced sexual harassment because men were "petrified" by them. 

The singer (also known as Sport Spice) was a guest on the Table Manners with Jessie Ware podcast (via PEOPLE) and opened up about the obstacles the band faced early on, which never included sexual harassment. 

"It's funny, because I get asked about the Me Too movement a lot and that within the music industry and if I've ever experienced anything, and I was like, are you kidding me?" she said. "No one would ever come near the Spice Girls because they were petrified by us." 

"I think often with these situations there can be vulnerable people that are targeted," she continued. "Which, of course, there are some vulnerable people in Spice Girls, but because you knew if you mess with one of them, you would have to deal with the other four, so we always had backup." 

Huh...must be nice. I'm curious to hear what the other Spice Girls have to say about this, and what their experience has been like. Read more here
