Dean Strang Appeared On 'The Ray D'Arcy Show' Last Night – And The Nation Cringed
"I'd say Dean Strang was wishing he was the one serving a life sentence in prison during that D'Arcy interview"
Having appeared on one of the most popular documentaries of all time, Netflix's Making A Murderer, lawyer Dean Strang has captured the heart of millions.
Viewers fell in love with the uber-moral lawyer like he was a real-life Atticus Finch. So Irish people were pretty excited to discover that Steven Avery's defender was coming to Ireland and would be appearing on The Ray D'Arcy Show.
Until he did the actual interview, of course.
Audiences felt cheated by the interview, feeling little more than a rehash of the Netflix series was offered, while others thought it was downright embarrassing.
Here are a few of the responses from viewers last night.

What a disappointing interview with Dean Strang on the Ray Darcy, Rays interview skills are shocking #theraydarcyshow— Shonagh O'Connor (@sho_mode) January 23, 2016
D'Arcy even asked the esteemed lawyer how he felt about now being a sex symbol.
A rare interview, one media corporations around the world would beg to have... and Ray D'Arcy is talking to Dean Strang about sex symbols..— Eleanor Kennedy (@EllieKennedy94) January 23, 2016
Oh cringe! #raydarcyshow talking about how the "women in the office" & his "wife on the phone" talking about Dean Strang being a sex symbol— Laurie (@choiceIrregular) January 23, 2016
