An eyewitness tells E! News that men wearing white anti-Lochte T-shirts rushed the stage in what looked to be an attempt to attack the Olympian, but the show's security team made sure nothing happened. The protesters were immediately kicked out from the show to the sound of the crowd booing. "Everyone was freaked out, especially Ryan and Cheryl. They were just frozen the entire time in utter shock," the insider tells us.
Host Tom Bergeron cut to commercial break, but upon return, a noticeably shaken Lochte said, "I'm doing good. So many feelings are going through my head right now. A little hurt. I came out here and I wanted to do something I was completely uncomfortable with, and I did."
