Stephen Colbert accused of racism over a tweet
“The Colbert Report's” Twitter account used a line from Wednesday's show, in which Colbert mocked Asian stereotypes, out of context. “I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever,” read the tweet, which prompted cries of #CancelColbert before it was deleted. Even Stephen Colbert weighed in, tweeting: “#CancelColbert – I agree! Just saw @ColbertReport tweet. I share your rage. Who is that, though? I'm @StephenAtHome” PLUS: Comedy Central manages “The Colbert Report” Twitter account, not “The Colbert Report.”
