Catch a mistake made by "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart?

Depending on how you follow up, he might accept correction gracefully — or launch a profane rant at you.

On his Comedy Central show last week, Stewart listed off a number of black men who had been fatally shot by police in the U.S. as he made the case that the shooting death of Michael Brown was part of a national pattern.

But there was a problem with Stewart's reporting: Dante Parker, one of the black men Stewart named, wasn't actually shot by police: rather, he died of a PCP overdose after police hit him with a Taser.

On Monday's episode of his show, Stewart reacted to Fox News catching his mistake and calling him out.

"I deserve that," Stewart lamented, while maintaining that his error didn't change "the preponderance of evidence of the piece."

However accepting Stewart seemed at first, however, when Fox News' Brian Kilmeade took Stewart's mistake as an opportunity to mention the number of police killed in the line of duty — implying that Stewart didn't care about slain officers — Stewart lost it.

"F*** you, Brian," Stewart said. "Seriously, f*** you. In fact, if I hadn't told you to f*** off, I would have had to apologize on tomorrow night's show for being factually incorrect."

He added, "By the way, jackass, you can truly grieve for every officer who's been lost in the line of duty in this country and still be troubled by cases of police overreach."
