Dancing is NOT a contact sport.
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!
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!!
Ch-ch-check out GMA‘s behind-the-scenes look at the shocking DWTS moment (below)!!!
Stay safe out there, dancers!
