Stanley Cup Finals or “Wahlburgers”? Decisions, decisions.

Singer-songwriter, actor, and Dorchester native Donnie Wahlberg took to Twitter to make sure his followers were watching his show “Wahlbergers,” which airs every Wednesday night on A&E;.

“Hope you guys are watching #Wahlburgers on @AETV!” Wahlberg tweeted Weddnesday at 9:10 p.m.

Under normal circumstances, this would be fine. But there was another program airing at the same time — Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals — and Bruins fans let Wahlberg know what their priorities were.

Twitter users responded to the self-professed Bruins fan with comments like, “Buddy! U gotta be kiddin me? The @NHLBruins are on! Smh,” and, “Your from Boston. You know damn well no one is watching Wahlburgers during the Stanley Cup Finals while the Bruins are playing... you know better than this Donnie Boy! #WeWantTheCup.”
