Video: Stephen Colbert's Emotional Reaction to Paris Attacks on Late Show

Stephen Colbert addressed the multiple shootings and explosions in Paris Friday that left 129 people dead in an emotional moment on Friday night’s The Late Show.

The short but heartfelt acknowledgement came at the close of the hour.

“Folks, we end tonight’s show with a heavy heart because we taped all of tonight’s show and then we found out about the horrific attacks in Paris today,” Colbert said.

“We add our thoughts and prayers to everyone in Paris, and now, um, we’ll see you on Monday, um,” the clearly affected host continued, before taking a deep breathe and adding a solemn, “Goodnight.”

    I find it disturbing how much TV time is spent talking about the France attacks while ISIS bombing a plane gets NO coverage anymore.

    What an emotional ending to The Late Show and words can’t even describe. Colbert’s right that the terrorists who attack Paris will bring to justice. #PrayForParis

    His expression and emotion say it all. Hard to really find the words.

  4. Danny says:

    He definately edited his words in his head, as not to say the wrong thing. I don’t know if he was about to go mow mow and call them anti-Islamic names, anti-Arab, ?

    But he held something back in the end!

    Maybe if his bestie Barry O. would get his head out of his butt and actually go on the offensive against these animals instead of referring to them as the JV, this type of atrocity would be avoided. But Colbert and his liberal buddies want to bring these Syrian refugees into the US, the same group that just murdered 129 people. Wake up people, Colbert and his liberal clown buddies are part of the problem.
