Stephen Colbert Goes After The IOC and Russia Olympics Over Anti-Gay Laws – Video

Colber Olympics

On Wednesday night, former Winter Olympics savior  Stephen Colbert weighed in on the controversy surrounding the Sochi Olympics and Russia’s anti-gay laws, highlighting the lame show of support for the LGBT community from the IOC and exactly how gay Vladimir Putin really is.:

“Now this anti-gay legislation has caused outrage and in response the International Olympic Committee has bravely stood up to Putin and said, ‘Whatever you want, Vlad’…All the Olympic Committee is saying is that being gay is an act of protest because what are gay men doing but boycotting women. The IOC is just asking gay athletes to knock it off for a couple of weeks. Just like at the ’36 Olympic games Hitler asked Jesse Owens to ease off on the black. Don’t be so ‘out there!’ But to be safe I think they should bring the Olympics back to their Greek roots where nothing gay ever happened.”
