John Oliver completely dismantled Dr Oz on Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight over the latter’s controversial endorsement of untested nutritional supplements.
The medical expert has been under fire lately for endorsing what he refers to as ‘magic’ beans, ‘miracle’ pills, and other untested natural supplements in his popular TV show. While demolishing the respected doctor for his endorsements and his comments during his appearance at Congress, Oliver also used the opportunity to disclose how unregulated the United States dietary supplements industry is … listing it as one of the reasons why most of the online scams out there are about ‘natural weight loss’ miracle-working products.
Oliver finished off his verbal destruction of Oz by featuring Game of Thrones author George R.R Martin, a puppy, three wine-throwing ladies, tap-dancing Steve Buscemi and a marching band to prove to the doctor that one can capture the audience attention without having to tell them to buy untested, potentially dangerous ‘magic’ supplements.
