Stephen Colbert is still ‘Late Show’ host after 4chan trolls attempt to #FireColbert

Stephen Colbert has been the victim of internet trolling. News outlets did not catch on to the real story behind this week’s #FireColbert hashtag, but anyone who browsed the seedy underbelly of the internet Monday night knows 4chan users started the hashtag to supposedly “do to Colbert what the left did to O’Reilly.” (Here’s a link to their call to arms, but tread lightly; 4chan is not for the faint of heart.)

Either way, Stephen Colbert is still the host of The Late Show and during his opening monologue he responded to the outcry over his “homophobic” joke about the president.

“I don’t regret that.”

“He, I believe, can take care of himself,” said Colbert, of Trump. “I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”

“So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be. Now, I’m not going to repeat the phrase. I just want to say, for the record: life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is, to me, an American hero. And I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else – but, that.”

  1. What happened to O’Reilly, he did to himself.
    Leave it to Pub trolls to equate serial workplace sexual harassment with payoffs to uttering a bleeped-out curse word.
    One of these things is not like the other.

  2. Stephen did not sexually harass women, he made a joke. Trump grabbed women and did whatever he wanted to them, and he became president. That’s the horror. People evidently were ok with that. Leave Stephen alone. At least he makes this time in our lives palatable!!

    1. . The RepUglies raged against Colbert for a “homophobic insult,” but, strangely, the LGBTQ community doesn’t seem too upset with him .. It is only the reich-wing that has their skivvies in a bunch over Colbert’s joke ..

  3. The right needs to grow up. If they were ok with trump grabbing women by their privates and Fox News hosts sexually harassing women all the time, then shut the hell up about Colbert. You’re just mad because he told the truth.

  4. Colbert made a joke, which Trump should be able to take. O’Reilly messed with people’s lives in REAL LIFE. Colbert’s show has increased in popularity since he started his Trump rants. There’s a lot to rant about.
