'The Bachelorette' got bumped for the Cubs in Chicago and people weren't having it

Well, we’ve finally gotten the answer to where people in Chicago draw the line with the Cubs love — right about where the Cubs start to interfere with “The Bachelorette.” Sure, people in Chicago are riding high off that World Series win, but not high enough that they’ll miss a night of Rachel Lindsay and her suitors.

You see, ABC 7 in Chicago chose to air the Cubs game with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night instead of “The Bachelorette” and some people weren’t very happy about that.

The dating show had been pushed back on the schedule, but no matter, the angry tweets came a flyin’.

And there were lots more just like that.
