John Oliver Dunks ‘Shark Tank’ Star Kevin O’Leary for ‘Terrible Lesson’ on Bankruptcy (Video)

John Oliver took on the bankruptcy process last night, when “Shark Tank” star Kevin O’Leary got credit for being a total jerk.

On an episode of the ABC series “Shark Tank,” Kevin O’Leary called an entrepreneur who had previously filed for bankruptcy “radioactive.” The HBO “Last Week Tonight” host then turned that TV clip right around.

“Well hold on, because that is a terrible lesson,” Oliver said. “And you, Kevin O’Leary, are hardly one to be calling someone’s decisions ‘radioactive,’ given that you invested in companies with business models like, ‘Put your face on a potato,’ ‘Look like an idiot on a unicycle’ and Toygaroo, the Netflix for toys, whose mascot always looked like it was searching for a place to take a s—. And, which interestingly, filed for f—ing bankruptcy. So I’m sorry Kevin, but to me, that makes you radioactive. I’m out.”

“Mr. Wonderful,” our asses.

Of course, O’Leary didn’t actually create this problem. In large part, Oliver pointed out, the credit card industry did.

You might be surprised when the “Daily Show” alum went after President Joe Biden’s role in all of this.

Watch the video above.

Last Sunday, “Last Week Tonight” examined nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. Kind of like how O’Leary took an adjacent pot shot on this episode, the prior one had an early line shredding New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

At the time, Oliver called nursing homes “the absolute last thing you want Andrew Cuomo to be handling, tied comfortably with literally anything else.”

We’d say the coronavirus pandemic proved that one.

“Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” is produced for HBO by Avalon and Sixteen String Jack Productions; executive produced by John Oliver, Tim Carvell, Liz Stanton, Jon Thoday and James Taylor; directed by Paul Pennolino and Christopher Werner. New episodes air Sundays at 11 p.m. on HBO.
