Stephen Colbert Takes Aim at ‘Accidental Racist’ With His Own Hilarious Parody

While Brad Paisley’s duet with LL Cool J, “Accidental Racist,” has managed to spark some serious conversation about racism in America–the tune inadvertently has done a much better job of inspiring wisecracks.

The latest to hop on the “bag on Brad” train? Political satirist/comedian Stephen Colbert, who grilled the tune on his Colbert Report this week.

Calling Paisley’s song a case of “unifying suckage,” Colbert explained that he was inspired “to write my own awful song in the hopes of bridging another deep cultural rift in America…the gay marriage divide.”

He then donned a cowboy hat and announced his new composition: “Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe.” Halfway through the spoof, he was joined by actor Alan Cumming, who gamely took on the role of misunderstood gay man. Watch for yourself–but be warned, some of the lyrics are a little…colorful.
