The corrupt ex-FIFA exec targeted by John Oliver has escalated their feud
Memo to Jack Warner: it’s not wise to enter a war of words with a comedian.
John Oliver has been gleeful lately about the resignation of FIFA president Sepp Blatter—so gleeful, in fact, that the Last Week Tonight host bought airtime on Trinidad TV to start a hilarious feud with former FIFA executive Jack Warner, who was arrested during a police sting at a Swiss hotel earlier this month and tried to defend himself by citing an article in the Onion.
Now, Warner has responded to Oliver’s response on TV 6 CCN. He’s outraged that Oliver, a foreigner and a “comedian fool,” would be allowed to buy time on the local TV station to ridicule him and his community.
We have to ask: What is up with that background music? It’s awesome and completely inappropriate. At times it’s hard to hear Warner because the soaring music is so dramatically loud.
We certainly hope Oliver responds again. Please, John Oliver. We’ll even beg using the words Warner repeats in his latest video: “Heaven help us.”
