Things Get Awkward On ‘Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ When John Oliver Asks Alexa About Amazon’s Working Conditions

Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon

HBO’s John Oliver is too real for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

On Thursday night, Oliver came on the show to play a game called “Hey Robot” which features an Amazon Echo device and is clearly a product placement sponsorship between Fallon and Amazon.

During the game, Oliver straight-up asks the Echo’s virtual assistant Alexa about Amazon’s working conditions, which have been the subject of controversy. Before Alexa could answer a panicked Fallon stepped in stopped Alexa from answering.

For what it’s worth Oliver has spoken about Amazon’s working conditions in great detail on his show “Last Week Tonight.”
