Colbert Smokes ‘Crack’ on Camera, Immediately Apologizes for ‘Past’ Mistakes

Stephen Colbert was so “inspired” by Toronto Mayor Rob Fords bold admission about past crack cocaine use that he decided to make his own shocking announcement on last night’s episode of The Colbert Report. After pulling out a “crack” pipe and smoking it on the air, Colbert immediately apologized for what unfortunately happened “in the past.”

First, Colbert commended “Chris Farley-tribute Mayor Rob Ford” for “personally taking crack off the streets of Toronto.” And now that Ford has admitted smoking the drug, Colbert applauded him for engaging in “the kind of blunt, straightforward honesty crack smokers are known for.”

“Rob Ford can’t change the past,” Colbert said, echoing the mayor’s defense. “He can’t even remember the past.” The host then announced he would “come clean” about his own mistakes, pulling the crack pipe out from under his desk and taking a hearty puff. “Have I ever smoked crack?” he asked. “Yes, but that was in the past.” Things only escalated from there, but as long as Colbert’s transgressions occurred in the past, all he could do was “apologize and move on.”
