Late-night comedians Stephen Colbert and James Corden fired back at U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday night after she criticized a skit at the 60th annual Grammy Awards.

During a planned segment Sunday night, Grammys host Corden had multiple musicians, such as Cher and Snoop Dogg, read portions of Michael Wolff’s controversial book, Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House. At the end of the video, two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made a cameo to read a portion of the book.

The skit went over well with the progressive audience, but Haley was not amused. She has been critical of Wolff for the “offensive rumor” that he has spread about an affair with President Donald Trump, while his book has been found to contain various factual inaccuracies.

“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it,” Haley wrote.

Colbert read Haley’s tweet and then mocked her for wanting politics out of music before naming several prominent musicians who have been known to include political themes in their music.

“She just wants to take us back to when music was less political,” Colbert said of Haley. “You know, John Lennon, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, N.W.A. I love their song, ‘No Comment on the Police.’”

Corden also pushed back against Haley’s tweet by sarcastically saying that she must have liked the other non-political parts of the Grammys, mentioning Kendrick Lamar’s performance about police brutality and U2’s performance about immigration in front of the Statue of Liberty.


“She wrote, ‘Some of us love music without the politics thrown in.’ Well, Nikki Haley. You can tell your boss some of us love politics without the Twitter meltdowns thrown in,” Corden said.
