    I never cared to watch Stephen Colbert, but I am honestly dissapointed that this is even a thing….

    Ok, I just looked up some articles and now apparently it’s because of “homophobia”……

    I thought that the “CancelColbert” Twitter outrage by Suey Park was inane, and I’ll hold my ground on this outrage bandwagon as well. The FCC is an outdated construct IMO, but rules are rules regarding speech on broadcast television. If he violated the speech laws by the FCC, then he’s violating the laws he signed on to when he left cable television.
