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.

Piers Morgan: The fact @lancearmstrong admits he had to look up what the word ‘cheat’ means, says all you need to know about the man. #LiveWrong

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

Katie Couric: Former cyclist Joe Papp tried to get Lance to come clean for months, today he told me: “The guy’s still a hero-no1 pedals the bike for you…”

Vinny Guadagnino: Watchin this Lance Armstrong interview

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

William Shatner: “@SilverLimePhoto:If you were to admit a lie to Oprah, what would it be?” I took performance enhancing drugs before I defeated the Gorn. ;-)

Colin Quinn: Funny Oprah does a whole show about a cheater but never did a show about a hardworking honest comic who’s had his ups and downs. #hmmm
