Colbert slams former CBS colleague Charlie Rose for ‘terrible abuse of power’

Charlie Rose is just the latest celebrity to be accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct, but this one hit close to home for fellow CBS host Stephen Colbert, who called the news “disturbing and strange.”

On Tuesday’s Late Show, Colbert reacted to news Rose was fired from CBS and PBS after reports of a history of sexual harassment.

Apparently Rose was known for giving shoulder massages, which colleagues called “the crusty paw.”

“And you may make three wishes upon the accursed paw, all of which are… to not get a back rub from Charlie Rose,” Colbert joked.

Rose also frequently greeted women while wearing an open bathrobe. “What is it with the robes?!” Colbert asked. “First Cosby, then Weinstein, now Charlie Rose. Who’s next? Yoda?!”
