Hollywood Reacts to Armstrong’s Oprah Confession


“Bad day: Spent it on a 787 Dreamliner with Lance Armstrong and Manti Te’o’s ex girlfriend.” – Steve Martin[THR]

Are you sick of Lance Armstrong yet? We are too. And hopefully this will be the last that we have to hear about him for at least the next six months.

But Hollywood and American sports media had to weigh in on his confession to Oprah that he did dope up (for decades, apparently) throughout his career as a professional sports cyclist. Some of the best tweets we saw on Twitter last night that left us laughing, chuckling, and pitying the man with one testicle:

Michael Ian Black
If Oprah’s smart, she’ll have James Frey come out and give Lance a hug.

Actor/author Fred Stoller (Seinfeld)
I want them to edit Lance Armstrong’s scene out of my Dodgeball DVD!

Comedian Doug Stanhope
Lance stands: “Hey lady. Name one other cyclist. Ever. I gave a ball to make this a known sport. Eat a f—ing dick.” #dreamsequence.

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit
No matter how many times Lance prepped for his interview w/ Oprah the 1 thing he couldn’t overcome was how arrogant & pompous he came across.

Lena Dunham
Despite the latest news my father will not stop using Lance Armstrong as an adjective for strength and determination.
