'30 for 30 Lance' Part 2: Fans refuse to forgive Armstrong, say 'he was an a**hole then and he is one now'
If last Sunday's roasting wasn't enough, the slamming only intensified on the internet as ESPN aired Part 2 of the docuseries
Four hours of honesty might still not be enough for cyclist Lance Armstrong to find forgiveness in the eyes of the world. From talking about his childhood and his cancer to his cycling and doping, the athlete answered every question without dodging a bullet. Except, it wasn't enough. The brickbats continue to slam him and by the looks of it, it will not end anytime soon. If last Sunday's roasting wasn't enough, the slamming only intensified on the internet as ESPN aired Part 2 of the docuseries today.
"I can't stand Lance Armstrong like I seriously think the dude is a huge a-hole. But I could not stop watching this '30 for 30'. He is still a huge ego, manipulative, driven dude & I had to watch 4 hours of his life. My lesson in the past 7 weeks: you cannot be nice in order to win," a user wrote. "Lance Armstrong is a scumbag," wrote another person. "I watched four hours of the 'Lance 30 for 30' and I don't know how I feel. Not shallow enough to say 'He cheated, so he goes to hell' nor anywhere close to understanding it all," a viewer said.
"Who is this lance?? just asking" a viewer tweeted. "Just when I think the '30 for 30' about Lance couldn't possibly make him seem like a bigger D-bag, they start episode two with another zinger," another seconded. "Whew, Lance Armstrong '30 for 30' was really good. What a narcissist. Good to see @Bonnie_D_Ford make many salient points," a fan observed. "You gonna put in jail every cyclist from 1994-2010 that did it too? Thousands of guys or just Lance?" a fan asked.
"The newest #30for30 was bs.. nothing was resolved. Everything discussed could have been googled. where was the 'so what?' The guy still cheated.. #lance," a tweet read. "After watching this #Lance 30 for 30, if you're a kid in America, why the hell would you ever want to consider being involved with Pro Cycling? Without taking a bunch of drugs, you would practically have no chance of success," a user said.
To sum up, here's one final thought from a viewer: "Lance Armstrong was and is still an a**hole #notmycycling #30for30."
