Stephen Colbert Rips WikiLeaks, Alex Jones And Reddit Trolls: 'Grow The F**k Up'

The late night host slammed conspiracy theorists for creating and involving him in the 'Pizzagate' hoax.

Stephen Colbert has had enough. 

The “Late Show” host spent 10 minutes on his Wednesday night program railing against conspiracy theorists for creating the “Pizzagate” hoax that led an armed man to target Washington, D.C., restaurant Comet Ping Pong over the weekend.

Colbert also called out President-elect Donald Trump’s national security adviser pick, Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, for posting a link on Twitter to the hoax with the remarks, “u decide.” 

“OK, then I decide a guy who spreads this bullshit shouldn’t be in charge of national security,” Colbert said to applause.

Later, after detailing how Wikileaks, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and a sub-thread on Reddit involved his former Comedy Central TV show, “The Colbert Report,” in the whole mess, the comedian had only four words.
