#FireColbert Campaign Breaks Out Over Comedian's Cock Joke

by at .

Stephen Colbert has Donald Trump to thank for his surge in recent ratings.

Ever since the 45th President of the United States was sworn in, Colbert has held little back in slamming the ill-informed and self-obsessed POTUS, flying past Jimmy Fallon as the most-watch late-night talk show as a result.

Viewers have clearly been tuning in to see what Colbert will say about Trump next.

On Monday night, however, many were stunned by how Colbert responded to Trump slamming John Dickerson of CBS News.

“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said toward the end of the insult-laden rant, adding:

“You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head.

"In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”

WHOA THERE! 

It was this final comment that some think crossed a line. As you're about to see below, it has led to a #FireColbert campaign on Twitter, with critics calling for the comedian's job...

1. Did He Cross a Line?

Did He Cross a Line?
Some are comparing Colbert's situation to that of Bill O'Reilly, who was recently dismissed by Fox News. Of course, O'Reilly paid five women to remain silent about their allegations of sexual misconduct; he didn't just make a joke. Moreover, he was fired because advertisers pulled out of his show, not because the network was offended over his scandal or even because viewers were turned off by it.

2. We Know What This Person Thinks

We Know What This Person Thinks
Yes, it crossed the line. Bigly.

3. See Ya, CBS!

See Ya, CBS!
Will ratings for the network as a whole suffer?

4. But How Do You Really Feel?

But How Do You Really Feel?
Come on. Don't hold back.

5. A Rush to Judgment

A Rush to Judgment
Rush Limbaugh, this person is referring to.

6. Kimmel Also Slammed Trump in The Monologue Referenced Here

Kimmel Also Slammed Trump in The Monologue Referenced Here
But point taken.

7. Even for Him?

Even for Him?
Colbert isn't exactly known as a lewd comic.

8. I'm Out!

I'm Out!
This is a far more reasonable argument. If you don't like Colbert, just don't watch Colbert.

9. Hey, Stephen...

Hey, Stephen...
Short and simple.

10. Trump Would NEVER Say Anything Like This

Trump Would NEVER Say Anything Like This
NEVER!

11. Boycott Time

Boycott Time
At least one is a call to action.

12. You Call Yourself a Comic?!?

You Call Yourself a Comic?!?
Give this person a break.

13. A More Nuanced Take

A More Nuanced Take
This is the best point yet.

14. Do You Have Any Idea What Sean Hannity Said About Obama Over the Years?!?

Do You Have Any Idea What Sean Hannity Said About Obama Over the Years?!?
We're just asking.

15. This Is Not an Example of Homophobia

This Is Not an Example of Homophobia
Decide for yourself if it's inappropriate. But joking that Donald Trump wants to have Vladimir Putin's penis in his mouth is not anti-gay.

16. Will a Boycott Take Place?

Will a Boycott Take Place?
We'll bee keeping an eye on NCIS ratings.
