Watch John Oliver's heartfelt goodbye to RadioShack

In the latest episode of "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver gives a touching, expletive-laden tribute to RadioShack as the company files for bankruptcy.

It's been too long, John. "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" returned to the HBO airwaves on Sunday, and Oliver put together a touching tribute to the newly bankrupt RadioShack.

The company had been down on its luck for some time now, and many viewed the end of RadioShack as inevitable. Indeed, the end of RadioShack itself wasn't surprising, according to Oliver, but the glib, jokey tone with which many critics have discussed the demise of the 94-year-old company in recent years is. Oliver likened the criticism to sitting across from your elderly grandpa and saying, "You know, I don't really see the point of Grandpa Fred in 2015. Frankly I'm sort of surprised he still exists."

Oliver had a few choice words for these critics in his tribute, which serves as an expletive-laden message for all the RadioShack haters out there. Check it out for yourself at the top of this post.
