Late night CBS host Steven Colbert outraged many people recently when he ripped President Donald Trump with a vile rant that included a homophobic reference to the president being a “c*** holster” for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Many people wondered why Colbert was faced no consequences over the obscene and inappropriate remarks, but that may have changed now as KYW in Philadelphia just reported that the Federal Communications Commission will be looking into the incident.

Noting that they had received numerous complaints about Colbert, FCC chairman Ajit Pai told WPHT that his agency would open an investigation.

“I have had a chance to see the clip now and so, as we get complaints, and we’ve gotten a number of them, we are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it’s been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we’ll take the appropriate action,” stated Pai.

“We have received a number of complaints, as I said, and we’ll follow the standard operating procedures, as we always do, and make sure we evaluate what the facts are and apply the law fairly and fully,” he added.

According to The Hill, the most likely punishment would be a fine, though whether that fine would be directed at CBS or Colbert himself was unclear.

“Traditionally, the agency has to decide, if it does find a violation, what the appropriate remedy should be,” explained Pai. “A fine of some sort is typically what we do.”

Colbert has remained largely unrepentant following the backlash regarding his disgusting anti-Trump commentary, though he did seem to indicate that, if he had it to do over again, he would likely choose different words.

Of course, we will let you know the outcome once the FCC has completed its investigation and determined what, if any, action it will take.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to let everyone know that the FCC is finally looking into Steven Colbert’s vile anti-Trump rant.
