By the time Part 2 of ESPN's '30 for 30 Lance' ended, the internet had mixed opinions about disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong and ESPN. Last week, he was branded a dope. He still is, but in addition, there are some people who respect him for being brutally honest. That doesn't erase what he did though. Should we look at Twitter, a rough 90% are still the ones who wouldn't forgive Armstrong. Not after all that he did. However, ESPN, which garnered flak earlier for bringing Armstong, was thanked by a few who thought it was a stirring piece of content.

"@espn #30for30 Lance Armstrong  #stillEHLegend," wrote one of the fans while another responded by asking: "Is Lance Armstrong a sociopath? #30for30 #lancearmstrong."  One fan added: "Lance also said, 'I wouldn’t change a thing if I could go back'. The 30 for 30 was great and I was excited to hear his side for the first time. I’ve come to the conclusion that Lance has ZERO remorse, deserved to have his titles stripped, and is a scumbag. Lucky he avoided jail."

"Lance Armstrong was and is still an a**hole #notmycycling #30for30," a fan wrote. "Takeaways from Lance Armstrong 30 for 30. Lance Armstrong is very much not over his fall from grace and seems to have zero remorse for his actions... Also, Lance Armstrong seems like a huge a**hole," another seconded. "Just finished watching the Lance Armstrong #30for30 and I’m still trying to figure out what to think. Good documentary. It makes you really think about the different complexities involved with Lance, both positive and negative," a fan opined. "To summarize the 30 for 30, Lance still thinks he was wronged," a fan tweeted. 

And if this was all the bashing, the docuseries was praised for giving a fascinating recount. "Fascinating and interesting story and a great film. #[email protected] @MarinaZenovich," a fan remarked after catching Part 2. "Tremendous Lance Armstrong 30 for 30 by ESPN. Greatly enjoyed it," a tweet read. "Lance Armstrong 30 for 30 was really good. I would watch it again. Was Lance not a good person? Well, we all knew to come into this, he was not. Bruce Lee is next Sunday, I'll tune in for sure," exclaimed another.
