Stephen Colbert has donated more than $400,000 from books sales to North Carolina to help in its recovery from Hurricane Florence, according to Gov. Cooper.
On Twitter, Cooper wrote: “All barbecue jokes aside, a huge thank you to
@StephenAtHome for donating a portion of the proceeds from his book to the North Carolina Disaster Relief Fund.”
The remarks from the governor, come after Colbert has made many jokes about not liking NC BBQ.
The money come from sales of Colbert’s book, “Whose Boat is This Boat?”
