Cheryl Burke Defends Ryan Lochte After Dancing With The Stars Protest: 'No One Deserves That'

no title

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…

Ryan Lochte was already the one to watch ahead of the Dancing with the Stars premiere on Monday night — and that was BEFORE he was protested on LIVE TV!

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.

We've already heard what host Tom Bergeron and pro Derek Hough had to say about the violent incident, but now it's Ryan's partner's turn to speak up!

Cheryl Burke made her return to the DWTS stage specifically to give the swimmer some added star power, so it makes sense that she'd be taking the boycott to heart.

In fact, the two-time Mirrorball Trophy champ defended the Gold medalist against "bullying" in an Instagram post on Tuesday, saying:

Video Surfaces Of Ryan Lochte Being Attacked On Dancing With The Stars… And It's Much Scarier Than We Originally Thought!

no title

Dancing is NOT a contact sport.

Ryan Lochte is far from being the most loved athlete in America right now… but we may have been underestimating just how hated he really is.

As you've probably heard, the Olympic swimmer did his best to impress during Monday night's premiere of Dancing with the Stars — but his hard work was completely overshadowed by two protesters who rushed the stage!

Recap: Amber Rose, Laurie Hernandez, & MORE From The DWTS 23 Premiere

While Carrie Ann Inaba was attempting to give her judge's critique to Ryan and pro partner Cheryl Burke during the 2-hour episode, two men wearing anti-Lochte t-shirts were apprehended off-camera.

However, hours later on Good Morning America on Tuesday, Tom Bergeron actually shared found footage of the take down — and those men were straight-up TACKLED by security guards!

Rightfully so, of course… but this video is much more violent than we ever expect to see from ABC!!

Ryan Lochte's Swimming Career Is In Serious Jeopardy — 10-Month Suspension Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg!

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersRyan LochteOlympicsSwimmingControversy

no title

Ryan Lochte better hang on to his Dancing With the Stars gig for dear life!

As we previously reported, the U.S. Olympic Committee officially suspended Ryan for 10 months on Wednesday. The punishment — which some members of the committee felt was too harsh — was handed down about a month after Lochte lied about a robbery in Rio.

While initial reports suggested Ryan could still swim under the suspension, TMZ is now alleging the scandalized athlete will NOT be allowed to compete in any meets for the duration of his sentence — including the pivotal National Championships, which could jeopardize his chance at the 2020 Summer Olympics!

Well, we guess this is what you get for causing an international scandal for no reason. Oof.

But that's not all… No, to make matters even worse

US Soccer isn't messing around when it comes to Hope Solo's unsportsmanlike conduct.

After the Team USA's upset, the team's keeper called the Swedish sports stars "a bunch of cowards," and completely bashed their gameplay.

But now, it looks like the scandalized goalie is facing the consequences of her hurtful words.

On Wednesday, US Soccer announced they will be suspending the 35-year-old for six months — effective immediately — because her controversial comments were "counter to the organization's principles."

US Soccer President Sunil Gulati said in a statement:

"I've known him for a long time. I've trained with him, been teammates with him, and he's genuinely a good guy. So, it hurts to see him in this position and make a mistake like that."

But, that doesn't necessarily mean the Illinois athlete condones Mr. Lochte's attempted coverup, because he added:
