John Oliver Takes Swipe At Kate Middleton’s Photoshop Fail & Gets ‘Jersey Shore’ Star Snooki Cameo

John Oliver dinged Kate Middleton for her Photoshop fail and got a cameo from Jersey Shore’s Snooki on Last Week Tonight.

At the top of the show, Oliver took a swipe at the drama in England over Kensington Palace’s release of a statement in which the Princess of Wales admitted to editing a photo of her and her three kids.

“A certain someone’s Adobe free trial expired in a pretty public manner,” Oliver quipped.

After a photo of Middleton and her three kids was released to the public to commemorate Mother’s Day in the UK, the picture was withdrawn from news agencies after it was revealed it had been manipulated.

“Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing,” read the apology from Middleton. “I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day. C.”

Oliver’s main story of the night was about student loans and how many Americans struggle to pay them off due to their exorbitant interest rates ballooning the monthly payments. The HBO host presented a woman who pays over $700 a month for a student loan, with most of the payment going to pay the interest and not the principal amount.

“That is ridiculous,” Oliver said. “That $650 could clearly be much better spent.”

Oliver said that the money going to the interest alone on the loan could go to buy two Cameo videos from Rudy Giuliani who charges $325 per request.

“I would prove that to you by buying one, but I don’t want to give that man any money,” he said.

However, Oliver found another celebrity and booked Snooki to make a Cameo video who charges $300 per request.

“Hey Brittany, what’s up momma. It’s your girl Snooki and I cannot believe this video costs half as much as your student loan interest. That’s f***ed up,” Snooki said in the video.

Later in the show, Snooki made a second appearance, as Oliver booked her again for a video to congratulate another student loan borrower who had finished paying her loan.

“Hey Sara, I’m so glad your student debt is all gone. Congratulations,” Snooki said.

Oliver thanked Snooki and mimicked her sign-off by blowing a kiss to the camera.
