Read an article that outlines the controversy here at E ONLINE! and a spirited defense of Stephen Colbert at Salon-- the article No, we shouldn't #CancelColbert
First, I did not see the original tweet in question, so I will not comment on it. However, reading over some of the tweets associated with this hashtag, it's clear that a good deal of people in America do not realize Stephen Colbert is a satirist.
Secondly, Stephen Colbert speaks for himself on twitter and doesn't tweet from the @ColbertReport account-- follow him here at @stephenathome for satirical tweets.
Twitter PC police love causing an uproar.
