Ryan Lochte made his debut on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars last night. However, Lochte was greeted by two men who rushed the stage toward the Olympian. The two men were wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts and shouting “Lochte, you suck!”
Lochte had just finished his performance with partner, Cheryl Burke and were in the process of receiving a critique by judge Carrie Ann Inaba when the protesters jumped on stage. Show host Tom Bergeron jumped to a commercial break on the live taping.
Lochte made headlines during the Rio Olympics this summer when he claimed to have been robbed at gun point at a gas station. Though the story wasn’t a complete lie, he admitted later to exaggerating some of the details.
Lochte has been since banned from swimming domestically or internationally for ten months and had to forfeit all of the prize money earned in Rio.
