Reality TV fans were not happy with the U.S. president's address to the nation night.
Donald Trump's speech on Monday evening announcing his new Afghanistan policy interrupted airings of both "Bachelor in Paradise" and "So You Think You Can Dance."
The sight of Trump's face breaking up the broadcasts drew the ire of both viewers. Some took their frustrations to Twitter.

Trump: *interrupts #BachelorinParadise to make speech*
Fans of "Bachelor in Paradise" were particularly upset considering they'd been on the edge of their seats for the show's highly anticipated rose ceremony.
Yo, Trump, you gotta address the nation right before the rose ceremony we've waited 3 episodes for? #bachelorinparadise— Carl Regolino (@Carl_Regolino) August 22, 2017
I'm sorry Trump, you did not receive a rose, please say your goodbyes and exit the White House immediately #BachelorInParadise— Simone (@HeySim1) August 22, 2017
Some questioned why the primetime address was necessary, given Trump's enjoyment of setting domestic and foreign policy through Twitter, anyway.
donald trump interrupting #sytycd for a speech is the worst thing that's ever happened during this show.— Amanda (@hockeychick57) August 22, 2017
To give credit where it's due, "Bachelor in Paradise" fans at least were warned in advance about the interruption by host Chris Harrison over Twitter.
But even his warning wasn't exactly well received.
Sadly The President's speech will eclipse #BachelorInParadise tonight. But ABC will be showing it later for those that get Trump'd— Chris Harrison (@chrisbharrison) August 21, 2017
The only way this is acceptable is if the speech is of him resigning.— so_confused (@sooo_confused) August 21, 2017
