Ryan Lochte Attacked by Protesters During Dancing With The Stars

Two protesters rushed on stage toward Ryan Lochte during the live season premiere of Dancing With the Stars.

The protest happened after he and dance partner Cheryl Burke finished their routine. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba got flustered when the guys interrupted her opinion and started shouting “Excuse me! Hey, back off!” Then the Dancing With the Stars security jumped into action. They tackled and cuffed the two men who wore shirts with Lochte’s name circled with a red slash through it, and stage hands removed more protesters wearing the same anti-Lochte shirts from the audience.

Lochte said “It felt like someone just reached inside, took my heart out, and tore it to shreds.”

Host Tom Bergeron cut to an early commercial break.
