As soon as Ryan Lochte and ‘Dancing With The Stars‘ partner Cheryl Burke had completed their dance on the show’s premiere tonight, the show had to cut to quickly commercial after two men rushed the dance floor trying to attack Ryan on stage.
According to ABC 13 who’s got the most updated info, “Two men wearing Anti-Lochte t-shirts disrupted the live “Dancing with the Stars” premiere in Los Angeles Monday night. U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte had just finished his performance with pro-dancer Cheryl Burke and was receiving his critiques from the judges at the time of the incident. Carrie Ann Inaba was speaking when the two men burst onto the stage. They apparently stood between the performers and the camera. Security appeared to be quick at containing the situation and tackled the two men to the ground. After the incident, Lochte told ABC News that he was going to “brush it off, and keep going.” Four to five other women were also escorted out of the audience as part of the group chanting against Lochte.”
Here’s some video from Twitter of someone who was sitting in the live audience tonight:
