* The trope image above comes from Series/TheColbertReport: Daniel Snyder (owner of the Washington Redskins sports team) attempted to make amends to Native Americans by starting a charity, but the name of that charity contained "Redskins," which is commonly seen as a epithet against Native Americans. In reponse, Stephen announced he had launched "The [[CallBack Ching-Chong Ding-Dong]] Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever" for Asians. Although people who actually saw the bit on television were less likely to complain, a staffer for the show tweeted the joke and put the context in one tweet, then the joke in another. Naturally, the second tweet spread far and wide along with calls to "#CancelColbert." The joke originally aired on a Thursday, then caught fire on Twitter on Friday. The next Monday, Colbert apologized.
