Jimmy Fallon Sidesplittingly Roasts Ryan Lochte at VMA Awards


This may be the lowest point in Ryan Lochte's career yet. After lying about being robbed at gunpoint in Rio and losing several high-end endorsements, the Olympic swimmer has had a tough week. And Fallon's imitation of Lochte at MTV's VMAs last night was just icing on the cake. 

On Sunday night, the "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon took to the stage in Lochte-esque bleach-blonde locks, sporting the swimmer's Olympic sweats. Fallon then proceeded to quote Justin Bieber - and take credit for all the videos nominated.

“Is it too late now to say sorry?” Fallon asked the audience. “Who had the best video of the year? I can't tell you that. They're all so great and talented, I could never choose. I couldn’t tell you even if there was a gun to my head." 

Fallon' biggest reward for the skit may have been Michael Phelps' reaction. 

Lochte is still hoping to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
