A protestor interrupted Bill Clinton with a sign that read "Bill Clinton A Rapist" while he was campaigning Wednesday in Canton, Ohio.

Clinton has been on a bus tour through Rust Belt states to rally voters for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. He had been speaking at an event for a local union group for a few minutes when the ABC live stream showed a protestor holding up a t-shirt with the words "Bill Clinton A Rapist" written on it.

The former president did not seem too thrown off by the demonstrator, but many in the crowd turned to acknowledge the protest.

Clinton told the crowd "not [to] worry about that."

"I love it when people come to my rallies," he continued, "and it’s a dead give away when they don’t want to have a conversation. Cause they know they’ll lose the conversation."

The crowd cheered loudly and the protestor exited without disturbance.

Wednesday’s protest comes amid reports that Donald Trump might bring up past allegations against Bill Clinton for sexual misconduct during Sunday night’s second presidential debate.

Juannita Broaddrick has accused Bill Clinton of rape back when he was serving as Arkansas's Attorney General. She came forward in 1999 with her allegation that Clinton sexual assaulted her in Little Rock hotel room in 1978.

"Hillary was an enabler, and she attacked the women who Bill Clinton mistreated afterward. I think it’s a serious problem for them, and it’s something that I’m considering talking about more in the near future," Trump told the New York Times after the first presidential debate.
