Stephen Colbert is on a mission to end the mockery of world leaders.
The “Late Show” host lightheartedly called on people to stop ripping international heads of state on Friday, following the news that China had called out its citizens for fat-shaming North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
“Sticks and stones may break their bones, but words can really hurt them,” Colbert said. “It may not seem like it but as we speak heads of state are being viciously mocked in every country in the world.”
“Except Canada, that guy is just hot,” the comedian added, in reference to the country’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Colbert highlighted how people are trolling various world leaders, before saying it didn’t matter how accurate the mockery was — “It is cruel.”
“So the next time you think of calling Kim Jong Un ‘Kim Fatty The Third’ ... just remember he has feelings too,” Colbert said. “And a nuclear weapon, so shut the fuck up.”
