"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert Monday night admitted he's "genuinely freaked out" about Brexit.

"It just kind of proves that people over there aren't really smart, but apparently it's just the accent makes them seem smart," Colbert said. "It's really just a lie."

"Well, you've had your little vote," he continued. "Now the British economy is tanking. The pound has plunged to its lowest level since 1985. Right now the most stable currency in the U.K. is the Cadbury Creme Egg."

Colbert noted that Google searches for "What happens after we leave the EU?" spiked 250% after the referendum passed.

"Which," he said, "is kind of like Googling 'What happens after unprotected sex?' on the way to the baby shower."
