Stephen Colbert To Face FCC Investigation Over ‘Homophobic’ Donald Trump Joke

Stephen Colbert pissed off lots of people this week with a controversial rant against President Donald Trump on “The Late Show” and now he might have to pay for it ― literally.

Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai revealed that the agency would investigate the comedian’s reference to Trump on Monday’s show as Russian President Vladamir Putin’s “cock holster.” Many called the comment “homophobic.”

“I have had a chance to see the clip now and so, as we get complaints, and we’ve gotten a number of them, we are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it’s been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we’ll take the appropriate action,” Pai said on The Rich Zeoli Show on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT on Friday.

Pai added the FCC would follow the standard operating procedures and “make sure we evaluate what the facts are and apply the law fairly and fully.”

Colbert’s fiery two-minute routine, titled “Stephen says everything journalists wish they could,” included jokes about Trump’s tiny hands and missing tax returns. But it was the “cock holster” line that drew the most ire and subsequently inspired a #FireColbert hashtag on Twitter.

The late night show host responded to the controversy on Wednesday night, telling viewers he didn’t regret what he said because he believes the president “can take care of himself.” But Colbert did note if he were to do it again, he would “change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be.”

Addressing the claims of homophobia, he added, “I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is to me, an American hero.”

Variety reported that Pai’s response to Colbert’s monologue is “surprising” as “’The Late Show’ airs outside the FCC’s long-established ‘safe harbor’ time frame of 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. in which the commission has the authority to police allegations of indecent and obscene material on the airwaves.”

Pai told The Rich Zeoli Show that if the commission finds Colbert violated FCC regulations he would most likely face a fine. 

Still, Colbert probably isn’t sweating the investigation too much. “The Late Show” drew its best ratings on Thursday night since its premiere week in 2015.

Ewan McGregor Shuts Down Homophobic ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Haters

Ewan McGregor has absolutely no time for the outrage over the “gay moment” in Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast.”

When “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert questioned the Scottish actor on Monday over the “little bit of controversy” surrounding the sexuality of Josh Gad’s character LeFou, McGregor gave a simple reply.

“It’s just like, he’s a gay character,” he said. “It’s 2017, for fuck’s sake.”

McGregor, who plays Lumière in the new movie, also took aim at Alabama’s Henagar Drive-In Theatre — which decided not to screen the movie because of its “homosexual” elements. 

“I think if you live anywhere near Alabama, you should not go and see this film,” McGregor joked. “What would Jesus think?”

The movie’s director, Bill Condon, appeared to ignite the discussion over LeFou’s sexuality in a recent interview with British magazine Attitude. He was quoted as saying that LeFou has “a nice, exclusively gay moment” in the film.

“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon said, referring to how LeFou questions his feelings for the film’s antagonist, who is played by Luke Evans. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings.”

After some media outlets reported that LeFou was openly gay, Condon slightly clarified his statements by calling the moment simply “part of a celebration of love.” 

“But I don’t want people to think it’s more than it is and be disappointed,” he told Variety.

The movie’s composer, Alan Menken, has called LeFou’s sexuality an “utter nonissue.” Actress Emma Watson, who plays Belle, described the moment as “incredibly subtle.”

Pharrell Offers Ellen A Powerful Response To Kim Burrell’s Homophobic Remarks

Pharrell made it clear that hate has no space in this day and age. 

The singer sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to promote the soundtrack for “Hidden Figures.” He was originally supposed to appear alongside his “I See A Victory” duet partner, Kim Burrell, but she was disinvited following a video leak of her spewing anti-gay rhetoric at the Love & Liberty Fellowship Church in Houston. 

DeGeneres said she chose not to have Burrell on Thursday’s show because the homophobic remarks were directed at her and who she chooses to love. 

“There’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017 and moving on,” Pharrell said, adding that he loves the gospel singer just like he chooses to love everyone. “We all have to get used to everyone’s differences and understand that this is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world, and it only works with inclusion and empathy. It only works that way.”

“Whenever you hear some sort of hate speech and you feel like it doesn’t pertain to you because you may not have anything to do with that, all you got to do is put the word black in that sentence, or put gay in that sentence, or put transgender in that sentence, or put white in that sentence, and all of the sudden it starts to make sense to you,” he said. “I’m telling you, the world is a beautiful place but it does not work without empathy and inclusion. God is love. This Universe is love and that’s the only way it will function. And I get it that sometimes some of the divisive stuff works. We learned that lesson last year that divisiveness works. But you have to choose what side you’re on. I’m choosing empathy; I’m choosing inclusion; I’m choosing love for everybody just trying to lift everyone. Even when I disagree with someone, I’m wishing them the best and hoping for the best because we can’t win the other way.”

Pharrell previously posted a message against hate speech on Instagram after the release of Burrell’s sermon.
