Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Many celebrities took to Twitter while watching Lance Armstrong’s “Oprah’s Next Chapter” interview, in which the former Tour de France champion confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs.

The disgraced cyclist’s doping admission elicited much disappointment, disgust, and — yes — humor.

Quite a few also commented on Oprah as an interviewer.

See what some stars are saying here!

Serena Williams: Wow. Watching @Oprah interview. Just WOW

Andy Roddick: Wow….. Oprah comes out very strong!

Carson Daly: Wow what a great 1st 20 mins to #Oprah interview with Lance. He is a cheater and liar. I’m embarrassed that I was such a fan for so long.

Anderson Cooper: Our guests at 10:30 on @AC360 have already identified inconsistencies in #LanceArmstrong’s statements so far.

Vinny Guadagnino: Watchin this Lance Armstrong interview

Seth Meyers: Say what you will, he’s still the Lance Armstrong of d*ckheads.
