Last week, California's Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation released an ad calling out the Washington Redskins for the football team's continued use of its controversial name.

Just in case the brutally effective spot missed its mark, John Oliver opted to tackle the ad, and the Redskins' name itself, in a segment Sunday for his HBO show, "Last Week Tonight."

As you'd expect, Oliver doesn't pull any punches in addressing the team "for some reason not yet formerly known as" the Redskins, and team owner Dan Snyder, whom he dubs "Chief Runs Without Moral Compass."
