American swimming hero Ryan Lochte said he was “a little hurt” after several men rushed the stage during his appearance on “Dancing with the Stars.”

On Monday night, viewers did not see what happened, only Lochte’s stunned expression before ABC cut to a commercial during the live show. Two men reportedly rushed at Lochte but were taken down by security and detained, according to TMZ.(RELATED: Ryan Lochte Joins ‘Dancing With The Stars’)

Video posted on Twitter shows one of the judges, Carrie Ann Inaba, evaluating Lochte’s performance, then saying “excuse me, excuse me, hey back off.” Viewers at home could not see what she was referring to.


Another tweet from an ABC news reporter shows a picture of the two men with their hands behind their backs and wearing shirts with “No Lochte” symbol on them. (RELATED: Ryan Lochte Opens Up After Receiving 10-Month Suspension [VIDEO])


When the show came back from commercial Lochte said he was “hurt,” according to another report.

“So many feelings are going through my head right now,” Lochte said. Adding that he was “a little hurt.”
