READ THE FINE PRINT: Lance Armstrong, who might as well be called Mr. Outside magazine, took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to pan his July cover. “Just saw the cover of the new Outside mag w/ yours truly on it. Nice photoshop on a plain t-shirt guys. That’s some lame bulls--t.” The cover has Armstrong wearing a blue T-shirt to which Outside added “38 BFD,” as a nod to his age.
A spokeswoman said the cover has a note: “NOT Armstrong’s real t-shirt.” But that doesn’t seem to matter to his 2.5 million followers, who also expressed their displeasure with the magazine’s handiwork. One follower, @scolgary, tweeted, “seriously?!?! @outsidemagazine was that really necessary? please don’t dumb down @lancearmstrong .ever.” @Chen_anne added, “@lancearmstrong Could not agree with you more. What is up the photoshopped t-shirt!?” Armstrong does have his detractors, and not all care about the doctored T-shirt. @VenceRamon wrote: “@lancearmstrong i saw you in Dodgeball movie and i think your not a good actor!!”
