We were disappointed to see the false and unfair allegations about Guinness World Records in Sunday’s episode of ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.’
The piece appears to have been motivated by our decision not to participate in tonight’s show.
We were asked to provide a judge to officiate the so-called world record attempt for “largest cake with an image of someone falling off a horse”.
On the basis that it was merely an opportunity to mock one of our record-holders, we declined. It is our policy not to partake in any activities which may belittle their achievements or subject them to ridicule.
