Stephen Colbert trolled Fox News over an embarrassing moment

Stephen Colbert discovered a really unpleasant moment on Fox News over the weekend as the right-wing network’s hosts defended Kanye West so had to back furiously.

Fox News has pumped up West, who changed his name to Ye in 2021, since his interview last week with Tucker Carlson. Then the rapper wrote on social media that he would “go to death concert 3” on Jewish people.

As Colbert noted, the hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Sunday, West defended himself after those posts, claiming he was “the target of big tech because he’s too dangerous and too outspoken and too much of a free thinker.”

Then they actually read West’s post.

“Let’s just say I hope they didn’t pull a hammy back so quickly,” Colbert said, playing comments from the hosts who quickly distanced themselves from West.

But Colbert wouldn’t let them.

“Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh,” he said, wagging a finger. “Kanye is your free thinker! You threw a shame party and invited a guy who always poops in the punch bowl. Now you have to drink it. L’chaim!”
