Kanye West continues to face backlash after making several anti-Semitic comments earlier this month. CBS’ Late Show host Stephen Colbert banned the rapper from the movie theater and the “northern half of Times Square” on Thursday night.

“After much thought and soul searching, I, Stephen Colbert, am banning Kanye West from performing at the Ed Sullivan Theater,” Colbert said during the opening of his show. “I have to. I have to. Line in the sand.”

Colbert went on to quip that his “jurisdiction extends to the northern half of Times Square.”

“I forbid Kanye from coming north of Bubba Gump Shrimp,” he said. “…Stay away from Times Square. He’s crawling out of the Elms, and they’ve seen a lot.”

The move, Colbert continued, was “too long overdue.”

“I have no excuses why I didn’t do it sooner, except he’s never been on the show, we’ve never asked him to be on the show, and I’m not sure he knows I have a show . .. But I had to do it now because I was afraid he would just show up at any moment because that’s what he did yesterday.”

On Wednesday, Skechers said it had to escort West, who now goes by the name Ye, from its headquarters in California after he “arrived without warning and without invitation” and “engaged in unauthorized filming”. An impromptu visit took place a day later Adidas ended the partnership with E regarding his recent anti-Semitic remarks.

“In five years, the idea of ​​Kanye’s unannounced visit went from weird to, ‘Sir, you need to leave that Skechers,'” Colbert joked. “…What’s worse is that unlike Adidas, Kanye never had a deal with Skechers. Apparently, Kanye is so desperate that he just drives around and searches Google Maps for ‘shoes near me.'”
