This was inevitable. You can’t have something as ridiculous as GamerGate go on for this long without attracting the attention of Stephen Colbert.

On tonight’s episode of The Colbert Report, the faux-conservative host examined the GamerGate controversy that has resulted in the repeated harassment of several prominent women in game development.

The comedian poked fun at the claim that GamerGate is “actually about ethics in games journalism” before inviting critic Anita Sarkeesian, best known for her “Feminist Frequency” videos, on for an interview.
