Coal executive sues John Oliver for making him sad

In case you missed it last week on Last Week Tonight (trying saying that five times fast) John Oliver dove into the coal industry. And he noted, right at the start, that one evil coal baron named Bob Murray had actually sent them a Cease & Desist letter.

Naturally this wasn't going to deter Oliver who then dedicated most of the last part of the episode into exposing how Murray is hated by his own employees and probably has gotten many of them killed. Also there is a talking squirrel.

Oliver made a point to only cite official government reports through the entire thing but did that stop Murray from going through on his threat of suing? Nope.

In the complaint it actually says this: "Nothing has ever stressed him more than this vicious and untruthful attack.”

Keep in mind that Murray had a mine collapse. Six miners were trapped and three rescuers died trying to get to them. This all stretched out over days. But not even that stressed him out as much as Oliver talking about him on TV.
