Bernie Sanders was the subject of more angry protests, but this time from fans of a TV show.
Viewers of the ABC dating show “The Bachelorette” blasted the senator because his speech at the Democratic National Convention cut into the show’s airtime.
Chris Harrison, host of the TV show, warned viewers in a tweet that the show could be affected.
