Talk show host Stephen Colbert was blasted for his ‘disgusting’ commercial that aired during the Super Bowl.
The late-night funnyman loudly chewed chicken wings while wearing a microphone, and licked ranch sauce from a football, as he promoted his Late Show on CBA.
Mr Colbert was panned on social media by users who were put off by his stunt.
“Why would you mic Colbert up like that? That’s just nasty,” said @PhineasPoe on Twitter.
“Stephen Colbert eating chicken wings may be the grossest sound I’ve ever heard,” wrote @YoRufusOnFire.
And @ACTBrigitte, added: “The Stephen Colbert commercial is disgusting.”
