US swimmer, Ryan Lochte probably generated the best memes and Tweets from the Olympic Games.
After an incident, where he lied about being held at gunpoint in Rio, social media let him have it.
He and three of his teammates supposedly lied about being robbed at gunpoint when they actually vandalized a bathroom at a gas station after a night out partying. A few days later, Lochte was reportedly already safe and sound at home in the US when his teammates were still detained for questioning in order to clear up some of the inconsistencies of what happened that night.
During that time, Lochte and his teammates became the subject of dozens of memes and funny Tweets on the internet.

I would rather watch Ryan Lochte being interrogated by Brazilian police than like 90% of Olympic sports.
