Stephen Colbert responds for the first time to #CancelColbert which was trending on Twitter over the weekend

Over the weekend, the hashtag #CancelColbert was trending on both Facebook and Twitter. The hashtag came in response to a tweet sent out by @Colbertreport that was viewed as racist by some people. 

The tweet was a satirical response to Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder opening an "Original Americans fund" instead of changing the name of his team. The tweet was subsequently taken down, but not before it started a social media fire storm. 

Below is Stephen Colbert's response
