Two men wearing anti-Ryan Lochte shirts rushed the stage Monday night during the premiere of Dancing With the Stars.

The disruption happened while judge Carrie Ann Inaba was delivering her comments to Lochte and partner Cheryl Burke.

Inaba sounding audibly frustrated yelled at the men, who weren't shown on camera, to get off the stage. The show went to a commercial break a short time later.

ABC7 entertainment reporter George Pennacchio tweeted a picture a short time later of the men believed to have caused the disruption.

Lochte, a 12-time Olympic medal winner, has been a controversial figure since apparently fabricating a robbery story during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He was subsequently given a 10-month suspension by the International Olympic Committee, the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Swimming.
