St. Louis (KSDK) - The City of East St. Louis is once again the butt of a late-night joke.
This time it was from Stephen Colbert on Monday's episode of "The Colbert Report."
"I was down at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in St. Louis, not to be confused with the decades-long gun show in East St. Louis," said Colbert.
Earlier this month, the city made it into a "Saturday Night Live" sketch, calling it a "hellhole."
East St. Louis mayor Alvin Parks said these types of jokes don't accurately represent his city.
