Somehow we doubt we'll see Lance Armstrong rubbing elbows with Hollywood's elite the way he used to.

The disgraced cyclist came clean to Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired on OWN Thursday night, and Piers Morgan, Seth Meyers, Lena Dunham, Rashida Jones and more celebrities took to Twitter to express their disappointment in, and contempt for, the former American hero.

(We should note, in a moment of Twitter greatness, that #doprah, #LiveWRONG and #LieStrong were trending.)

Oprah was "mesmerized and riveted" during Lance interview

Andy Roddick: "Wow.....Oprah comes out very strong / Seriously????? Part 2??? Wtf??? Terrible and genius of Oprah all at the same time"

 

Matthew Perry: "I always want to make sure Oprah is on MY side."

 

Steve Martin: "Bad day: Spent it on a 787 Dreamliner with Lance Armstrong and Manti Te'o's ex girlfriend."

 

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"

 

More from Lance and Oprah's interview

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."

 

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

 

Seth Meyers: "Say what you will, he's still the Lance Armstrong of d--kheads."

 

Lance stripped of 2000 Olympic bronze medal in wake of doping scandal

Jack Osbourne: "Honestly I don't care that Lance doped. He gave people hope and that's more important [than] anything. So what if he lied. #livestrong"

 

Rita Wilson: "I want to know what or who taught Lance to lie? What created the person who felt such a need to lie?"

 

Rashida Jones: "Great day for liars! They are dominating the news today. #CongratsUSA"
