Oprah Winfrey's interview with Lance Armstrong went public on Thursday night and the cycling great admitted straight away that he used performance enhancing drugs. It was perhaps the most contentious piece of television of the year, and Twitter users were not at a loss to express their displeasure.

Some weren't as positive about even that. One user referenced the former BBC host Jimmy Saveile, who after his death in 2012 was found to have committed countless acts of sexual abuse.
And Twitter wouldn't be Twitter without a bit of levity.
