John Oliver Fans Crash FCC Website

After slamming new rules that threaten net neutrality, the comedian's fans flooded the public comment section of the FCC

[After the Sunday airing of the weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, during which comedian John Oliver slammed the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s new rules which would effectively gut net neutrality protections, the FCC confirmed that their site had crashed.

John Oliver fans reportedly flooded the site after the comedian urged viewers to submit public comment to the FCC in order to "prevent cable company fuckery." On Monday, the FCC confirmed that their system was experiencing "technical difficulties" because of heavy traffic. At the time of this writing the segment had been viewed over 1.6 million times.]
