Stephen Colbert Reacts to NYC Attack: ‘New Yorkers Will Never Live in Fear’

On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert began his show with a message about the terrorist attack that took place in New York City.

“Shortly before we began taping tonight’s show, we learned about the horrific events here in New York City,” Colbert said. “It appears a terrorist has attacked innocent citizens in lower Manhattan. And all of our hearts, all of our broken hearts go out to everyone affected and to all of those who live and work in this great city.

He said that tomorrow, New Yorkers will learn more about the attack but will also “wake up and keep going.”

“Because in an uncertain world, one thing is for sure,” he continued. “New Yorkers will never live in fear.”
