John Oliver Tackles Uganda’s Anti-Gay Law: VIDEO


John Oliver went after Uganda’s draconian anti-gay laws on his show yesterday, with particular emphasis placed on the origins of the laws. Spoiler alert: both the U.S. and the U.K. have blood on their hands.

The "Last Week Tonight" host also pointed out that merely calling Uganda’s law “harsh doesn’t really do them justice”:

“That’s like calling Stalin a bit of a grump. Or the triangle shirt-waist fire a ‘whoopsie-do.’ Or the Titanic a disappointing vacation.”
