Stephen Colbert Puts an End to the #CancelColbert Controversy

Stephen Colbert joked about last week's #CancelColbert controversy on Monday night when he dedicated a big chunk of his show to addressing the backlash and making one very surprising move. To recap: the hubbub first started when The Colbert Report's Comedy Central Twitter handle (not Stephen's personal handle, which is @StephenAtHome) tweeted out a joke from the previous night's episode, writing, "I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity of Orientals or Whatever." (It has since been deleted.) The tweet was a play on Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder's Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, but the satire got lost when it was translated into less that 140 characters. There was an immediate backlash, and the #CancelColbert hashtag was born.

So, how does Stephen deal with his own headline-making scandal? By playing up his conservative alter ego even more and putting an end to the @ColbertReport and @StephenAtHome confusion once and for all. Watch Stephen joke about the controversy, above, and see the host destroy the @ColbertReport handle (with the help of Twitter's Biz Stone) on the show, below.
