VIDEO: Colbert rips Lululemon CEO a new one

Chip Wilson, the CEO of Lululemon, has been all over your cable news morning shows for the past few weeks thanks to comments he's made about the supposedly defective yoga pants that were too revealing and pilling.

Basically, he went on television and told the world that his pants were only defective if fat women were wearing them.

This comment, his subsequent ridiculous apology, and older quotes about the difficulty that some Japanese people have pronouncing the name of his company made Wilson the perfect candidate for Stephen Colbert's "Alpha Dog of the Week" award.

Colbert tears the guy a new one and it is hirarious to watch.

Back in 2009, he said, "In the early 1970s, 'the pill' came into being... Women's lives changed immediately... Females no longer had to 'make' relationships work... Men's lives didn't change however and they continued to look for stay-at-home mothers. Men did not know how to relate to the new female. Thus came the era of divorces."

You hear that, ladies? Divorce is your fault because you got the pill, allowing you to have all kinds of care-free sex... Every husband's nightmare.
