Protesters rushed the stage of Dancing With The Stars on Monday to confront swimmer Ryan Lochte, forcing ABC to cut to an unscheduled commercial break.
Lochte and his dance partner were in the midst of receiving a critique from judge Carrie Ann Inaba when she told some people repeatedly to “back off” as staff can be seen and heard moving toward the stage.
