Twitter’s Reaction to Ryan Lochte’s Lies Is EVERYTHING
By now, you can’t escape the Ryan Lochte drama. While we first weren’t sure what was even going on with his stories, we soon found out that Lochte and crew made up the entire robbery story to cover up for some really bad behavior at the Rio Olympics. Now, the Internet is (rightfully) tearing Lochte and his teammates apart… and it is everything.
Some people are making note of Lochte’s not-so-smart history:
Others have been mashing up the Lochte with well-known memes for savage results:
There are also loads of people rightfully pointing out that Lochte’s generally gentle treatment by the media (especially compared to, for example, Gabby Douglas getting scolded for forgetting to put her hand on her heart during the national anthem) can be boiled down to, you guessed it, white male privilege.
Celebs also had a lot to say — including Chrissy Teigen, who is totally over it.
We can’t wait to finally hear from Lochte and learn what exactly he thought he was doing making up such an awful story.
