#FireColbert Twitter campaign gains steam after Stephen Colbert’s profane Donald Trump takedown
#FireColbert is on fire.
Talk show host Stephen Colbert is taking serious heat on social media for a profane joke he made about President Donald Trump that many fans are calling “homophobic.”
The “Late Show” star sounded off on Trump during his opening monologue Monday night, criticizing Trump for abruptly ending an interview with CBS News’ “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson.
“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said during his profranity-laced rant, which was bleeped during the telecast. “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.”
Fans immediately took issue with Colbert’s final joke, with some calling the comedian homophobic, and demanding CBS fire him.
Time for him to go. Total trash. I will boycott advertisers. #FireColbert
