‘I am not a racist’: Stephen Colbert explains the ‘out-of-context’ Tweet that launched the #CancelColbert movement

Stephen Colbert dedicated the entire first segment of his show on Monday to address the controversy over a satirical tweet taken out of context.

Last Wednesday, the comedian made a joke during his show about how Dan Snyder, the head of the Washington Redskins’ football team, has set up a charity in an effort to help diffuse the ongoing tensions over the team’s widely-criticized name.

In that vein, the Comedy Central host likened Snyder’s move to Colbert’s hypothetical decision to create the “Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.”

In today’s world of the always offended, he will have to grovel to stop his show from being cancelled.
