On Monday’s broadcast of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert joked that “pink slime”—a.k.a. “lean finely textured beef” or LFTB if you work for the USDA—has so many hormones in it, it’s “part of the transgender community.”
Possibly after a call from GLAAD, Colbert offered a humble apology–or rather, a “Colbology”—in last night’s show:
“Apparently, some in the Twittersphere have accused me of being transphobic,” he explained. “So I just want to get out in front of this and say that I, Stephen Colbert, apologize to any of my transgender bovine viewers that may have been offended. No matter how you were born, no matter how you identify, I want to be clear that I would be proud to grind you up and eat you.”
Well, at least he’s willing to put his mouth where his money is.
