Stephen Colbert Writer Admits She's 'Glad We Ruined Brett Kavanaugh's Life'

Dumas regretted the tweet, particularly after taking on a ton of heat and apologized, saying that her tweet was Tone Deaf.

While past posts indicate Dumas hasn't been shy about her criticism of Kavanaugh, who has faced allegations of sexual assault and drunken behavior, The Late Show has taken aim at the justice as well, Colbert's monologues brimming with jokes at his expense in the weeks leading up to his confirmation.

Dumas' tweet came several hours after the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh as the newest associate justice of the Supreme Court.

She later posted an apology, blaming her tweet on the "complexity of frustration, anger and sadness".

Kavanaugh decried the accusations against him as "last minute smears" created to stall his nomination.

Colbert won't be discussing his writer's tweets on TV tonight - The Late Show is scheduled with reruns this week.

Ariel Dumas is a writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

But many of Dumas' fellow comedy writers are clearly on her side and say no apology was needed. For his part, President Trump tweeted at the time that he was "sad" to see that the Emmy Awards had their "worst ever" ratings. Some Kavanaugh supporters celebrated with beer - or, in the case of Kellyanne Conway, a bewildering #MeToo hashtag.For many others, however, the news triggered anguish, disgust, and rage. "Brett Kavanaugh is 100% gonna ask Justice Sotomayor to fetch him coffee", she wrote on Saturday. Dumas also criticized Kavanaugh for invoking his family in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, saying, "it is not automatically a moral achievement to be a son, a husband, a dad. Plenty of a**holes are all three". Lawmakers confirmed Kavanaugh 50-48, with Sen.

And, after Kavanaugh testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Colbert responded to the judge's complaints that his name was being drug through the mud.
