In the face of new drug charges and having been stripped of seven Tour de France titles, Armstrong was fired this week from his role as a Nike spokesperson.

Aziz Ansari went off on an epic rant this week during a Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance.

The Parks and Recreation star first expressed his support for gay marriage ("Why is anyone against gay marriage? You know you're on the wrong side of things..."); then went off about how he thinks of civil rights progress during pumps of interracial sex; and concluded by delving into the Chick-fil-A controversy.

His main takeaway from that scandal? There's a lot of "inequality in the quality of the chicken sandwiches" around the nation - and no one would care if this were Long John Silver's...

O.J. Simpson never threw away the knife he used to kill his ex-wife and her friend and is now looking to sell the weapon for millions, a tabloid claims.

O.J. Mug Shot

The disgraced NFL great, now jailed for kidnapping and robbery, is reportedly trying to profit from his 1994 double murder, the National Enquirer reports.

In the new issue of Allure, the 26-year-old former reality star says, "I think the story they told wasn't a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was."

UK diver Tom Daley recently scored a sponsorship from British Gas.

Perhaps in retrospect, he wishes he hadn't ... or that they'd at least reconsider the placement of their ad on his Speedo. Take a look at the image below:

British Gas

Yeah, that's pretty awkward. But it is natural gas, are we right??

Also, any publicity is good publicity. Who will forget the utility company's association with the 18-year-old phenom and the British diving team now?
