Come Watch John Oliver Yell At Tech People For Being Terrible Rich Terrible People
When will foolish people stop inviting Comedy Central stars to speak at their high-profile event thingies? Remember Stephen Colbert eviscerating Dubya at the 2006 White House Correspondents’ Dinner? We loved that. Now, tech people invited 'Daily Show' alum John Oliver to their nonsense "Crunchies" awards so he could beat them about the head for being terrible rich low-social-skills people.
“You already have all the money in the world,” he said. “Why do you need awards after that? It is absolutely ridiculous. You’re no longer the underdogs, it’s very important that you realize that. You’re not the scrappy people that people get behind. It used to be that people who worked in the tech industry were emotional shut-ins who you could root for. Now those days are gone. You’re pissing off an entire city.”
