The Daily Show host John Oliver’s response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the USA has gone viral.

“Holy fook!” said Brit Show John Oliver of the decision to acquit Zimmerman, before a segment of the show titled ‘Wait! What? How could you possibly... You’ve got to be kid... There is no way... I can’t... Oh. My. God.”

Oliver, who is presenting the Comedy Central show in place of long time host John Stewart while he is away directing his debut movie, Rosewater, said of the decision:

“How does 2013 Florida have a law that seems cut and pasted from 1881 Tombstone?”

Zimmerman had been on trial for shooting an unarmed teenager and had confessed to the shooting, yet through a peculiarities of the state of Florida’s laws about what constitutes self defence, he was found not guilty in a court of law.

For Oliver’s take on the verdict, check out the video below.
