The devastating attacks on the London Bridge Saturday night stunned the world once again, leaving 7 innocent people dead and 48 injured.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said "things must change" when it comes to terrorism policies, but John Oliver's biggest issue was with media the coverage of the London attacks.
"Obviously, our thoughts go out to everyone affected but, as a British person living in America, I feel compelled to address a certain theme that emerged through American coverage of this tragedy," Oliver said on his show Sunday.
The "Last Week Tonight" host reacted to channels like CNN, Fox News and The New York times reporting that the U.K. was "under siege."
"OK, here's the thing: For the record, in no way is Britain 'under siege,'” Oliver said. "Is it upset? Yes. Is it pissed off? Oh, you fucking bet it's pissed off. But to say it's 'under siege' and that its people are 'reeling' is to imply that it's somehow weak enough to be brought to its knees by three monumental assholes. And that, as an idea, is insulting."
Oliver also spoke on behalf of his fellow Brits who he claims were wildly irritated at the headlines that were circulating as well, the majority of them mocking the coverage from U.S. media.
"Honestly, it was an uplifting demonstration of quintessentially British defiance because the British people are never going to let terror change their way of life. And if you need proof of this, just look at this footage of people being evacuated from the scene. You see that one guy there?" Oliver said, flashing to an image of a man holding his beer while fleeing the scene of the attack. "He refused to leave his pint of beer behind! That is a one-man walking 'Keep Calm and Carry On' poster."
To conclude, Oliver remarked on a gentleman named Richard Angell who claimed in a video that he would go back to the restaurant where he fled the scene to pay his bill. "We're not going to let these people win, and I keep saying, if me having a gin and tonic with my friends, flirting with handsome men, hanging out with brilliant women is what offends these people so much, I'm going to do it more—not less—because that's what makes London so great," Angell said in the clip.
Oliver agreed with him, exclaiming in response, "F-ck yeah it is! F-ck yes it is."
"I hope—I sincerely hope—that that guy is out on the town tonight pounding down gin and tonics and flirting with every man he sees. To you sir, I say this: cheers."
