Video: Stephen Colbert and Alan Cummings Parody Brad Paisley's and LL Cool J's 'Accidental Racist'

Since its release, Accidental Racist, the song from Brad Paisley and LL Cool J, has spawned a lot of attention and criticism. Last night, on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert put his own spin on the song. Together with Alan Cummings, the pair performed Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe.

"This level of unifying suckage has inspired me to write my own awful song," Colbert said.

"I'm proud of my hetero cred but not everything Rush Limbaugh said," Colbert sang, sporting a cowboy hat.

“To the man stretching next to me / At the Crunch gym down on Main / I hope you understand / When I told you God hates f*gs / The only thing I meant to say / Is I’m a Skynyrd fan,” he continued.

The parody even featured a rap part, performed by Cummings.

Accidental Racist has come under fire and has been a huge topic of discussion since it's release. Some of the lyrics of the song have sparked intense racial discussions.

"To the man that waited on me at the Starbucks down on Main, I hope you understand/When I put on that t-shirt, the only thing I meant to say is I’m a Skynyrd fan/The red flag on my chest somehow is like the elephant in the corner of the south," Paisley sings in the beginning of the song.

"Dear Mr. White Man, I wish you understood/What the world is really like when you’re livin’ in the hood/Just because my pants are saggin’ doesn’t mean I’m up to no good/You should try to get to know me, I really wish you would/Now my chains are gold but I’m still misunderstood," LL Cool J raps.
