Ryan Lochte’s story about being robbed in Rio, Brazil turned out to be the stuff of pure fiction and VH1 Live! host Marc Lamont Hill called out the people saying, “He’s just a boy, who made a mistake.” On last night’s VH1 Live! (August 21), alongside Power’s Joseph Sikora, Omari Hardwick, Enrique Murciano and former Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Apryl Jones, Hill proclaimed, “He’s 32 years old! He’s not a boy!”
The Power actors joked about Lochte’s bleached blonde hair almost looking gray, and Murciano cracked, “He’s a lying a– 62 year old, making up s–t.” Meanwhile, Hill theorized that if Carmelo Anthony had been embroiled in the same type of public drama he would have really been paying for it. He further argued, “I mean Gabby Douglas didn’t put her hand on her heart and they said she wasn’t patriotic.” Apryl and the rest of the studio audience co-signed Marc’s words.
What do you think of the fall out of Ryan Lochte’s lies? Would it have been different if it was Carmelo Anthony?
