Jay Leno recently called for more civility on late night shows and because of that, he is now being called a hypocrite.
According to Fox News:
John Oliver isn’t here for “civility” lectures from Jay Leno.
The HBO host took aim at Leno’s recent complaint about a perceived lack of “civility” from late-night hosts such as Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel amid the genre’s heavily political climate.
“You know, everything now… everyone has to know your politics,” Leno told the “Today Show” last week. “I tried to use Johnny’s model, and I would get hate mail from both sides equally and thought ‘well that’s fabulous, that’s exactly what I want’.”
“Many comedians have since expressed regret about things they have said about her, although one who hasn’t – and was among the most relentless – was Jay Leno,” he said.
Oliver went on to show the jokes Leno used on Lewinski and pointed out how they did not age well.
