Colbert ‘Reports’ on Dan Snyder’s New Foundation
On his Colbert Report Wednesday evening, Stephen Colbert took a satirical swipe at Dan Snyder’s recent insensitivity to Native Americans by creating the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation.
The foundation was announced on March 24 in a letter Snyder posted on the team’s website. The foundation has been criticized as a cynical way to defuse criticism over his team’s name.
After Colbert batted around Snyder’s questionable commitment to the Native community,he reintroduced his “beloved” character Ching-Chong Ding-Dong, and parodied Snyder’s foundation by announcing that he was starting a charity with a name that would clearly offend Asians Americans and others.
