Stephen Colbert Destroys His Show's Twitter Account After Controversy

Originally posted 04/01/2014 01:00PM

Forget simply pressing delete. Embattled late night host Stephen Colbert went to much more dramatic measures to blow up the Twitter account that sparked last week's #CancelColbert social media movement.

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone appeared on The Colbert Report Monday night and channeled Wile E. Coyote as he helped destroy the @ColbertReport Twitter handle for the Comedy Central host.

Colbert's virtual nightmare began Thursday when a Tweet originating from @ColbertReport – a promotional account for the show – angered many in the Asian-American community and prompted the hashtag that trended on Twitter late last week into the weekend.

Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones Claims He Was 'A Paid Hypocrite'

Originally posted 03/19/2014 12:45PM

Angus T. Jones grew up in front of America's eyes, but now the former Two and a Half Men star is finding a way to shine outside of Hollywood – from the pulpit.

"It was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people. I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't okay with it, but I was still doing it," Jones, who after 10 years left his role as Jake on the still-thriving CBS sitcom, says of the series – which, in 2012, he had publicly called "filth".

"I really want to be able to come into the light, because I know that's where genuine healing is," a bearded Jones, told KHOU in Houston, where the 20-year-old is now working with the World Harvest Outreach Church.

He also attends college in Colorado and is a close follower of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
