John Oliver is sticking it to the Yankees again.
The popular comedian took aim at the Evil Empire while explaining his Mets fandom during the Amazin’s 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.
“As a real sports fan in England, I knew it’s just not acceptable to come to America and support the Yankees,” the “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” host told Pix 11 from the Citi Field seats. “It’s just not OK. By default, I was a Mets fan because I knew being a Yankees fan was the wrong thing to do morally.”
There was also his former boss, Jon Stewart, whose Mets loyalty, Oliver said, made it “mandatory” to pledge his baseball allegiance on this side of the Triborough Bridge.
Oliver has laughed at the Yankees before. In 2016, he condemned the franchise as “the biggest elitist a–holes in all of sports” over a newly introduced ticketing policy, before setting off chaos in the Stadium’s premium seats.
