John Oliver is one upstanding fucking guy. I’m glad there’s people like him who don’t back down in the entertainment industry and press the accused rather than letting them skeet by for their probable heinous shit.
Oliver has massive balls of steel.
Whether it's pissing the KKK off or interviewing famous creeps.
The whole thing is cringy
That was hard to watch. Especially the last bit.
Amazing that the closest thing left to real journalism in this country is comedy. Just about every "journalist" I can think of would have just backed off and let him get away with that cop out answer.
“It’s ‘not reflective of who I am.’ It’s that kind of response to this stuff that pisses me off,” Oliver said. “It is reflective of who you were. If you’ve given no evidence to show it didn’t [happen,] there was a period of time for a while when you were a creeper around women. It feels like a cop-out to say ‘it wasn’t me.’ Do you understand how that feels like a dismissal?”
I am curious about what part of his behavior you have a problem with. Is it that he pressed him? Is it because you feel this was not the correct format for such a conversation?
I'm curious to see what bridges John burned here. Whether they lead anywhere is up for debate, but he probably shouldn't be expecting any more invites from Tribeca.
oh right... didn't realize it was even there, the article made no mention of having a video or there even being a video. (noscript).
That was awkward. But I was expecting shouting or something. Hoffman remained unbelieveably calm if you ask me.
