ESPN aired the “30 for 30” documentary “Fantastic Lies” Sunday night which takes aim at the 2006 Duke lacrosse rape case that gained national attention.

Three Duke student-athletes were arrested after being accused of raping a stripper at a house party involving most of the lacrosse team. The highly publicized case ended with the charges being dropped after it became clear that the accuser had lied and prosecution had withheld evidence that clearly proved the young men were innocent.

The premiere of the highly anticipated documentary drew some extremely strong reactions on Twitter.

Crystal Mangum, the infamous false accuser, was convicted several years later of murdering her boyfriend.
