Stephen Colbert, Alan Cumming Remake ‘Accidental Racist’ for the Accidental Homophobe

In an homage to the unified hatred the Brad PaisleyLL Cool J collaboration "Accidental Racist" brought about, Stephen Colbert decided to remake the song "in the hopes of bridging another deep cultural rift": gay marriage. In "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe," Colbert croons his rendition of Paisley's ballad: "To the man stretching next to me at the Crunch gym down on Main, I hope you understand when I told you 'God hates fags,' the only thing I meant to say is I'm a Skynyrd fan." And at the 32-second mark, Alan Cumming takes on LL Cool J's rap, inciting egalitarian dialogue with, "Hey Mr. Straight Man, I wish you understood what it's like to live in the world when you look this good." Check out their intentional awesomeness in the video below.
