“Bachelorette” fans were furious that Bernie Sanders spoke for so long during the first night of the Democratic National Convention.
Because ABC was streaming the convention on its channel, the senator from Vermont’s speech — which was 32 minutes long — ran into the allotted time for the reality dating show.
Fans weren’t pleased and took their frustration out on Sanders on Twitter.
Is the Bachelorette really being preempted by a Bernie Sanders speech?!?! Really ruining my Monday! I need to know who gets the rose!!!
