Morgan has accept the "Daily Show" host's offer to pay reward to anyone who could produce video footage of the CNN host falling off a segway in Santa Monica
Piers Morgan suffered tremendous pain in 2007 when he fell off of a segway scooter in Santa Monica, Ca., and now he wants comedian John Oliver to suffer financial pain for joking about the incident on Monday's episode of "The Daily Show."
While discussing Morgan's recent admission that he has smoked pot, Oliver told his audience he would "personally offer $10,000 in reward to anyone who can bring me footage of Piers Morgan falling off that segway."
Morgan scolded his "fellow Brit" on Tuesday's "Piers Morgan Tonight" by broadcasting the embarassing video — which has been posted on YouTube since January – on his own show.
"Mock all you want Mr. Oliver, but, my fellow Brit, your punch line did carry with it a bona fide offer, to anyone you said, who could produce the video of me falling off a Segway," Morgan said. "And by the way, breaking five ribs, collapsing a lung and nearly expiring from life."
"Satisfied, John? I hope you are, because it was as painful as it looked," Morgan continued. "But now it's time for you to suffer pain. Ten thousand dollars worth of pain in fact. I assume the money will be delivered by the end of business day tomorrow. If not, I'll make sure that Mr. Stewart, now he's back from his lengthy movie making sabbatical, will take it out of your measly little salary."
