Comedian John Oliver Calls Out Public Shaming

John Oliver calls out public shaming! On Sunday night’s ‘Last Week Tonight,’ the comedian actually admitted that he has occasionally gone too far.

Like in the case of Monica Lewinsky, who some 20 years after her affair with Bill Clinton still faces a lot of public shaming.

Oliver actually interviewed Lewinsky for more perspective. He calls public shaming America’s favorite past time but he also acknowledged that not all public shaming is bad particularly when it’s pointed at racists or when it can “increase accountability”.
