U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte, who has been vilified for making up a story about being robbed at gunpoint at a gas station in Rio, issued an apology on Friday morning, in which he expressed regret for “not being more careful and candid in how I described the events.” But he is being slammed on Twitter for not admitting to lying about the incident.

Lochte should’ve waited a week to draft apology, because "it’s traumatic to be out late w/friends in a foreign country" just doesn’t work.

Ryan Lochte’s apology is the least apologetic apology since… ?
