Ex-FIFA Official Slams John Oliver as "Comedian Fool"

There is no love lost between Jack Warner, who was indicted last month on corruption charges, and the HBO star.

John Oliver is not making any friends with FIFA officials.

The HBO host recently bought television airtime in Trinidad to lampoon former FIFA vice president Jack Warner's televised message to the nation. In his video, Oliver encouraged Warner to reveal all the secrets that he had previously threatened to disclose. 

Now, Warner has fired back, posting a video of his own in which he refers to Oliver as a "comedian fool."

"It is really incomprehensible how a local TV station [in Trinidad] could allow a foreigner ... to come into this country to embarrass its citizens, to embarrass our people, to be critical of the way we speak, to be critical of the way we look, to be critical of our culture," said Warner, who was among the 14 people connected with the soccer governing body to be indicted last month on corruption charges.

Warner's video can be seen below.
