A title card appeared, reading: “Dedicated to our dear friend Amy Cole, 1970-2024.”Colbert’s reaction sparked an outpouring of sympathy.“Life is always too short, my deepest sympathy,” one user wrote. “We were all confused over what was happening.

He was hugging people, and then he came back to his desk,” a second viewer recounted. “He asked us not to applaud and proceeded to his close.

I am so sorry for his and the show’s loss.” “So sorry to hear this. Condolences to her family, work family, her friends and all who knew her,” posted a third person.
