Flashback: Comedy Central Host Shows No Sympathy For Warmbier and His ‘Crocodile Tears’

[lz_jwplayer video=TWLC0xyJ player=6R1oFuLT]

Arguably the biggest news of the week is the death of Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was taken prisoner in North Korea for “hostile acts” in January 2016. Returned to the U.S. earlier this month in critical condition, Warmbier’s family announced his death on Monday.

Now, a clip from a 2016 episode of Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” is surfacing, and it doesn’t show the host in a good light.

Wilmore can be seen saying he doesn’t have “much sympathy for this guy and his crocodile tears,” and makes light of what was an extremely serious situation. Watch the clip above.
