John Oliver used his HBO series Last Week Tonight on Sunday (June 26) to comment on the aftermath of the Brexit vote.
The 39-year-old political comedian criticized supporters of the movement for declaring the day of the vote to be Britain’s “Independence Day.”
“First, Britain was already independent. In fact, it’s what many other countries celebrate their independence from,” John said. “Second, the sequel to the movie Independence Day actually opened this week, and features the wholesale destruction of London, which is beginning to feel pretty f–king appropriate right now.”
