New Jersey’s own Stephen Colbert has already acknowledged that the character he plays on The Colbert Report is an idiot, and willfully ignorant.
But certain segments of the Montclair resident’s program do not translate well to Twitter, and a recent tweet from The Colbert Report has some people calling for the show to be cancelled.
Colbert was mocking Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, who answered complaints of racism in his team’s name by starting a foundation to aid Native Americans. According to The Blaze, The Colbert Report’s official Twitter account tweeted, “I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.”
