‘Bach­e­lorette’ fans are cer­tainly not feel­ing the Bern

Metro USA (Boston) - - GOSSIP/THINGS TO DO -

Bernie San­ders’ lengthy DNC speech Monday night cut into “The Bach­e­lorette,” and loyal JoJo fans were not hav­ing it. Be­ing forced to wait—on fan­tasy suite

night, mind you — left loyal view­ers dev­as­tated.

Fans who DVR-ed the episode felt es­pe­cially snubbed — be­cause the show started 30 min­utes late, the end of the episode was cut off.

Though the show’s fear­less leader, Chris Har­ri­son, tweeted out a warn­ing (“Check lo­cal list­ings cause I’m guess­ing the #DNC will jack up #TheBach­e­lorette time in many cities. Some things are even out of my con­trol”), many view­ers still felt wronged.

Fans ea­ger to watch JoJo gal­li­vant through Thai­land with her sexy suit­ors quickly fig­ured out that the aged politician on their screens was not a “Bach­e­lorette” plot twist (his lack of beard scruff and hair gel were dead giveaways), prompt­ing na­tional shock and outrage.

Un­know­ingly, the sen­a­tor set off a Twitter firestorm.

“I think Kanye needs to in­ter­rupt Bernie to let him know ‘The Bach­e­lorette’ is on tonight,” tweeted @man-du­uh­stan­ford. Other users agreed this was an in­jus­tice worth get­ting up in arms about. “Okay Bernie get off my tv I want to watch JoJo break down on the Bach­e­lorette rn,” fired off @mor­gopetrusha.

Sorry, Bernie, you don’t get the fi­nal rose.
