The Democratic party had live comments turned on their livestream of the Democratic National Convention for a portion of the event, leading viewers to comment freely as the event proceeded Monday night.

Comments during New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s speech at the convention show the rapid pace of comments from people trolling the livestream.

“Teleprompter National Convention,” one commenter wrote.

“Americans for Trump!!!” one viewer said.

The comments were disabled midway through the livestream. A separate channel dedicated to the convention had comments turned off from the start, and had more viewers than the party’s channel.

The convention’s online format was adopted in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Originally scheduled to take place in Milwaukee, the convention moved online in June. Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is slated to officially accept his party’s nomination in Wilmington, Delaware, his hometown.
