Colbert Takes News of 5,000 New Scrabble Words Rather Harshly on โ€˜The Colbert Reportโ€™

โ€œThatโ€™s right, Hasbro has added new Scrabble words, and Iโ€™m sorry, but this ends our Hasbromance.โ€

Colbert took the news that board game company Hasbro recently added 5,000 new words to the official Meriam-Websterโ€™s Official Scrabble Players Dictionary rather harshly. In a clip from a recent episode, Colbert comically decried Hasbroโ€™s additions of words like โ€œchillax,โ€ โ€œselfie,โ€ and โ€œbromanceโ€ to make Scrabble more appealing to younger players.
