John Oliver calls on the internet to save itself by flooding the FCC with comments

As the new FCC Chairman Ajit Pai plans to take a “weed whacker” to net neutrality regulations, John Oliver asked internet commenters everywhere for their help on Sunday. To give users an easy way to voice their displeasure of Pai’s plan to repeal the classification of the internet as a common carrier, he’s taken out the domain name gofccyourself.com, which is a direct link to the site to send comments. So many comments flooded in that, by Sunday, it appeared that the site was already overloaded. Back in 2014 when the FCC was considering new net neutrality rules, Oliver called for the same kind of action from his viewers on Last Week Tonight. The FCC’s website crashed, Oliver’s segment brought unprecedented attention to the issue, and the commission decided to reclassify internet service as a common carrier.  Watch Oliver slam Pai, explain and defend net neutrality, and patriotically address Reddit commenters, Yelpers, and his own haters in this segment from Last Week Tonight.  Tiny dog likes to take his giant horse friend for a walk Turns out Michael Fassbender is really good at breakdancing Rick Deckard is back in the new ‘Blade Runner 2049’ trailer Angel Harry Styles floats into the heavens in ‘Sign of the Times’ video…
