John Oliver Voices the One True Response to the Paris Attacks That We All Felt (NSFW)

As John Oliver says himself, there’s still a lot unknown about the attacks in Paris at the end of last week. Over the last few days, you’ve surely heard any number of reactions to the tragic events, and more will likely come over the following weeks and months—a great deal of them inappropriate, opportunistic, or insensitive (along with the many, many wonderful and supportive voices). So, allow yourself a few cathartic minutes of the Last Week Tonight host reacting in the only manner we can all get behind 100%.

That’s not to say Oliver’s the only one who feels this way or the only one with a positive message of support, but this rant is probably the most accurate transcription of the pure, gut feeling of outrage we all felt.
