Miley Cyrus was groped and kissed by a man while out with Liam Hemsworth in Barcelona

A disturbing video of pop-star Miley Cyrus being sexually harassed by a stranger has been making the rounds on social media today.

In the clip, Cyrus and her husband, Liam Hemsworth, can be seen leaving their hotel in Barcelona, Spain, where they had to walk through an packed crowd of fans to reach their car. As the 26-year-old walks behind Hemsworth, a man proceeds to grab her body and hair, and attempts to kiss her. Cyrus tries to break away, before security guards catch on, and separate her from the unidentified man. Hemsworth then realises what's happening, and puts his arm around her.

The response on social media has been damning. "Ugh if that guy is this horrible to a celebrity in front of all those people, I hate to see what he does with girls when others aren't around. There should be some sort of charge brought againsy him [sic]", wrote one Twitter user, while another added "I hope she finds him and sues him for sexual harassment."

"What kind of coward does this to a woman?" wrote a third. 

Others pointed out that Cyrus' security should have intervened quicker, writing "She needs more security"

As of now, Cyrus hasn't commented on the incident.
