Why Does William Shatner Hate 'Bachelor' Star Nick Viall? (Updated)

Update (March 22, 2017, 2:00 PM PT) "Dancing With The Stars" host Tom Bergeron has chimed in on the William Shatner vs. Nick Viall twitter flap. Bergeron wished Shatner a Happy 86th birthday Wednesday, and added a little request asking if he can negotiate a truce between Shatner and Viall.

Original story:

Loyal "Dancing With The Stars" fan William Shatner does not like "The Bachelor" Nick Viall and is campaigning on Twitter to get him booted from ABC's reality competitions series ASAP.

Shatner shared a bunch of tweets about it Monday night.

Viall made his debut on the show's Season 24 premiere Monday with partner Peta Murgatroyd and Shatner expressed just how bad he wants Viall to be voted off.

"My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?" he said.

Like most of us, many Twitter users questioned why Shatner could hate Viall so much. The actor replied to a few tweets saying his angst over Viall comes was sparked by Andi Dorfman's season of "The Bachelorette," as well his run on "Bachelor in Paradise." Shatner also called out the fact that Nick's last name is fitting for his personality.

Viall finally replied to the tweets with just a sad face. His dance partner Peta Murgatroyd also replied to a very vocal Shanter, who claims to actually love the dancer, just not so much her partner.

Watch Viall and Murgatroyd dance the cha-cha on their DWTS Season 24 debut below.
