Protesters Rush Ryan Lochte During 'DWTS' Show

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.

Ryan Lochte of the United States attends a press conference in the Main Press Center on Day 7 of the Rio Olympics on August 12, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Lochte added that he was "a little hurt, but I came out here".

As you've surely seen by now, the defamed Olympic champ saw the effects of his Rio lie first-hand when two men stormed the stage wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts during his judging.

The video also showed at least four others in the audience wearing anti-Lochte shirts.

The two protesters were tackled by security and arrested for trespass and other people in the audience booed before being removed by security, the ABC network and police said.

After Olympian Ryan Lochte performed his first dance routine, two protesters, Sam Sododeh, 48, and Barzeen Soroudi, 40, rushed to the dance floor while he was being critiqued by the four judges. The swimmer, 32, had previously claimed to police that he and his teammates were robbed at gunpoint, but surveillance footage showed differently. I didn't know if they like had anything, had a gun, I don't know what would have happened.

Ryan Lochte's gold medals don't change the fact he's a liar. The show, staying in split screen and the commotion off screen, forced host Tom Bergeron to break to commercial.

Lochte went on to dance, though CNN reports that his feelings were hurt by the protest, saying, "You know, at that moment, I was really heartbroken... A positive show", he said.

"But I came out here, I wanted to do something that I'm completely not comfortable with, and I did, and I came out with a big smile, and had the best dance partner".

The 25-year-old said he and his relative, fellow protester, Sam Sotoodeh, 59, were in Rio during the Olympics and saw how Lochte's actions led to the mistreatment of USA visitors.
