Stephen Colbert joked about North Carolina’s House Bill 2 during a recent monologue on his show, making fun of the lawmakers who passed it.
The “Late Show” host gave his own take on the controversial law, which has been in the national news for weeks.
“I don’t care if you’re male or female, what sex or gender identity someone is,” Colbert said. “I—and I mean this sincerely—don’t want to share a bathroom with anyone.”
The comedian also suggested some of his own “bathroom rules,” which included no chit-chat and no shaking hands.
Gov. Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, more than a month ago after it was passed by the North Carolina Senate.
The bill makes transgender people use the bathrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certification.
PayPal withheld a Charlotte expansion because of the bill, costing the state hundreds of jobs and artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Demi Lovato have cancelled North Carolina concerts.
