April 18 (UPI) -- On last night's episode of "The Colbert Report," late-night comedian Stephen Colbert took on the Brad Paisley song "Accidental Racist" by partnering with Alan Cumming to sing "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe."

The original song, in which country star Paisley and actor and rapper LL Cool J sing about modern race relations, particularly in the south, got a lot of headlines after the public's confused response.

In the Comedy Central spoof, Colbert dons a cowboy hat and laments misunderstandings between himself and a gay man at the gym. Alan Cumming enters to rap from the gay perspective just as LL Cool J gave the black perspective in "Accidental Racist."

But in the end, after a presumably enlightening dialogue in the form of song, Colbert sang "now that gay is fine, let's fix Palestine."
