Twitter ‘Scandal’ Erupts Over Alleged Racist Segment on ‘The Colbert Report’

Stephen Colbert Accused of Racism With #CancelColbert Campaign

“I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever,” “The Colbert Report” Twitter wrote Thursday.

The joke was taken from a bit on Wednesday night’s “The Colbert Report,” parodying Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his launch of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation in light of controversy over the team name. Taken out of context, however, many Twitter users saw the joke as racist, and launched a #CancelColbert campaign that quickly became a trending topic.

As the controversy started, the tweet was deleted, but Twitter users managed to screenshot the tweet before it disappeared.

Here is the tweet that started it all:
