HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver ripped Geraldo Rivera on Sunday night, saying, “F–k you Geraldo, I hope your mustache gets caught in a box fan.”
Last week, the U.S. Military dropped the “mother of all bombs” on Afghanistan and Fox News turned it into a celebratory music video complete with Toby Keith singing “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue” over footage of the attack.
“One of my favorite things in 16 years at Fox News is watching bombs drop on bad guys,” Rivera said as the “Fox & Friends” segment wrapped up. Oliver didn’t appreciate the comments and responded on “Last Week Tonight.”
“That’s a coincidence because one of my favorite things in four season on this show is getting to look into the camera and say ‘f–k you Geraldo, I hope your mustache gets caught in a box fan,'” Oliver said.
Rivera responded via Twitter on Monday morning, reminding the HBO host that ISIS fighters are “baby killing terrorists.”

The bomb killed over 90 ISIS fighters, according to the Afghan government.
The GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb is the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal. Thursday’s action marks the first time the MOAB, which was developed during the Iraq War, has been used in combat.
