Colbert Makes Homophobic Joke About President Trump

After Stephen Colbert Makes Homophobic Joke About President Trump

Hashtag 'Fire Colbert' Quickly Spreads Across Twitter;

Colbert, host of The ‘Late Show’ came under fire for making a joke about President Donald Trump that even many liberals say is going too far.

During his opening monologue, Colbert went off on Trump over the President’s treatment of CBS News’ John Dickerson, who saw an interview with Trump abruptly ended when he asked about the President’s unproven claims that then-President Obama had wiretapped Trump.

 “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said near the end of the insult-laden rant. “You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c-k holster.”

The final remark has drawn the internet’s ire, with viewers taking to social media to declare Colbert is homophobic. The hashtag #FireColbert began spreading around Twitter, along with calls for people to boycott sponsors of the late-night show.

CBS did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.
