Really, @ColbertReport? You actually let that tweet go out under the guise of “satire"?—

Is this supposed to be a joke? Stephen Colbert thought so. He was attempting to satirize Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his launch of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, but his joke didn’t quite fly.
Suey Park wasn’t alone calling for Colbert’s cancellation. #CancelColbert soon trended.
