Stephen Colbert exposes Homeland’s representation of…everything

It was recently revealed that graffiti artists hired to spray paint Arabic words on walls seen in the background of Homeland actually took the opportunity to ridicule the show. They used phrases like “Homeland is racist” to protest the show’s representation of Muslims.

Stephen says, “that is a major intelligence failure,” echoing the rhetoric of the political thriller, but “who could have predicted a graffiti artist would break the rules?” He then tries to think of Muslim characters that weren’t terrorists, but only ends up revealing “four spoiler alerts” and, later, “two more spoiler alerts.”

Stephen eventually makes a stand for Homeland, though. “It might not accurately portray Muslims, but that doesn’t make it racist. Cause the show doesn’t accurately portray anything!”
