(Newser) – Prince Andrew's TV interview about his friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has triggered shock waves of disbelief across British media, CNN reports. To recap, the prince soberly denied even knowing accuser Virginia Giuffre, who was underage at the time. In particular, he denied having sex with Giuffre on a particular night nearly 20 years ago because he was at a Pizza Express restaurant near London, and refuted her claim that he was sweaty because, he said, a medical condition prevented him from sweating. He has since regained his ability to sweat, the New York Times notes. Among the reactions:

  • "I expected a train wreck," tweets Charlie Proctor, who edits the Royal Central website. "That was a plane crashing into an oil tanker, causing a tsunami, triggering a nuclear explosion level bad."
