Colbert Taunts World's 2nd-Richest Person For Being A Huge Halloween Cheapskate

"The Late Show" host ripped Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for reportedly leaving trick-or-treaters in the cold.

Stephen Colbert mocked the world’s second-richest person for not sharing the wealth when it comes to Halloween treats.

“The Late Show” host said there’s a basic contract between kids and adults when it comes to the holiday.

“You say ‘trick or treat’ and I don’t give you candy, legally you get to burn my house down,” he joked. “It’s in the fine print on the back of a Milky Way bar.”

But a man who should know contracts pretty well didn’t deliver on his end of the bargain: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, aka the world’s second-richest person (after Elon Musk).

Colbert noted a Politico report that said kids knocking on Bezos’ door in Washington, D.C., were told the home was “not participating in Halloween.”

“Not participating in Halloween?” Colbert repeated in disbelief. “Then why did he spend all year costumed as Panic Pete the Squeeze Toy?”

Bezos, Colbert noted, wasn’t even at home, but was instead with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, who was celebrating his 66th birthday.

“Bezos didn’t actually get Gates a gift, but he did give him this card: ‘You’re turning 66, not participating in your birthday,’” Colbert cracked.
