Stephen Colbert has flat-out denied having anything to do with the sending of a racist tweet. The tweet which has gone viral is extremely offending to Asians.

Stephen Colbert is in hot water. A tweet sent from his email to millions of fans of Comedy Central has caused outrage among the Asian community. The man denies having ever sent the tweet as he declares that it was not his twitter account. 

In the capacity of a comedian, Colbert likes to make quips and engage in occasional satire. His one-liners make many laugh and guffaw. But when something goes wrong in the PR department, as it has now with this gaffe, Colbert has found himself knee deep in controversy. 

It all began when the Washington Redskins top brass set up a foundation for Original Americans. It was meant in good faith since the goal was to provide valuable resources to the various tribal units. 

Colbert started mocking the attempt by the team owner as an exercise in ingratiation and also referred to the name as being blatantly racist. Over a million comedy aficionados received the tweet which then became the talk of the town. 

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 (@ColbertReport) March 27, 2014

It stated in a brusque manner by saying that he was willing to show the Asian community that he cared by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever. This was finally signed with a flourish expressing “The Colbert Report”. 

Nothing about this is new, since Colbert has previously taken on this avatar on his show. And he also made a personal venomous tirade against Rush Limbaugh three years ago. 

There were many responses to Colbert’s present blunder on Twitter. One spoke of how white liberals were responsible for poking fun at Asians. Another said that he was not any better than the racists that originally propagated such nonsense. Stephen Colbert however still reiterates the fact that he is not responsible for the tweet. He says that he actually has no idea how the tweet got sent in the first place.
