Stephen Colbert Takes News of 5,000 New Scrabble Words Rather Harshly on ‘The Colbert Report’

That’s right, Hasbro has added new Scrabble words, and I’m sorry, but this ends our Hasbromance.

Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report, took the news that board game company Hasbro recently added 5,000 new words to the official Meriam-Webster’s Official Scrabble Players Dictionary rather harshly. In a clip from a recent episode, Colbert comically decried Hasbro’s additions of words like “chillax,” “selfie,” and “bromance” to make Scrabble more appealing to younger players.
