Watch Stephen Colbert Explain How #CancelColbert Makes Him Just Like Jesus (Video)

Stephen Colbert jumped on the cooling ashes of the #CancelColbert nontroversy Monday, explaining that the out-of-context tweet was sent (and removed) by a Comedy Central account, not by him, but that he will nonetheless not bow to the “dark forces trying to silence my message of core conservative principles mixed with youth-friendly product placement.” It’s pretty funny, and we have it for you right here, because we are Good Americans.

Best moment (yeah, yeah, spoiler schmoiler): Colbert points out that in all the fuss over the out-of-context tweet, there wasn’t much said about the actual target of the joke on his teevee show, the genuinely tone-deaf, unironic “Washington Redskins’ Original Americans Foundation,” which Colbert says “Twitter seems to be fine with, because I haven’t seen shit about that.”

And here’s Part Deux:

Also worth a look, Stephen’s interview with Twitter founder Biz Stone, who kindly refuses to apologize, and helps kill the offending account. He has a book to sell, too.
