Noah is facing a massive Twitter backlash after he posted several tweets many deemed to be anti-Semitic. The tweets in question were written back in 2009 and 2010, and angry people on Twitter have come out in droves to share their disdain.
South Africans know how to recycle like israel knows how to be peaceful.— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) June 2, 2010
Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road. He didn't look b4 crossing but I still would hav felt so bad in my german car!— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) September 18, 2009
In May 2014, Noah also tweeted, "Behind every successful Rap Billionaire is a double as rich Jewish man. #BeatsByDreidel."
Another topic Noah often refers to in his jokes is race, which many people find offensive. Although, it should be noted that it is not biased toward any race, and none are safe from his line of fire.
Manchester United is like a white girl. Heavy upfront but lacking in the back.— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) September 21, 2014
Some of the tweets have slammed the comedian, informing him that racism and anti-Semitic remarks are nothing to joke about.
It's really daring and innovative of The Daily Show to replace its Jewish host with a raging anti-Semite. https://t.co/0KTOfCBNUS— John Schindler (@20committee) March 31, 2015
I mean, exactly what is Trevor Noah going to bring to the show except for South African stereotypes and subtle racism?— Dan Philander (@philaender) March 30, 2015
Its amusing to know: Its amusing to know how Trevor Noah can joke about racism being a victim himself. http://t.co/Og2upqlRFk— Bella Roy (@quikshopper) March 31, 2015
However, there are those who find the backlash to be rather absurd.
and this: To be fair, most of his comedy involves the ridiculousness of racism. After all the anti #TrevorNoah tweets today, point proven!!— Izzy MVP Black (@IzzySinosi) March 31, 2015
Aside from the backlash the comedian is facing on Twitter, there are many people who believe he would be a great fit for The Daily Show because he brings a unique perspective given his biracial upbringing.
