Trevor Noah Slams Kanye West

During the Oct. 11 episode of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, 38, made it clear to viewers that he will not tolerate Kanye West’s anti-Semitic social media posts. “I don’t even know where to start with this sh**, I mean, promoting antisemitism to your 50 million followers?” said the TV host. “I’m not even joking,” Trevor said, before correcting Ye’s spelling of the term. “I understand that this isn’t the point, but that’s not how you say it.” I realize it’s not the most important issue. That I am aware of. But this is DEF CON 3. Okay, not death con 3.”

The 38-year-old, who is set to leave the show in December, made a point of responding to the 45-year-old rapper’s most recent tweets. Trevor reacted to Ye’s initial mention of being “sleepy” in the tweet by asking, “What is that? Do you get tired of antisemitism? Is this why MAGA supporters adore the MyPillow guy?” More importantly, the comedian expressed sympathy for conservatives. “But I’ll say this: I feel bad for American right-wingers right now because they’re getting Kanye,” he said.

Trevor mentioned how conservatives were missing out on the Grammy-winning artist’s hit albums. “They missed College Dropout, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Graduation… they’re getting this Kanye,” the TV personality continued. “It’s like dating the prom king from high school, but decades later.”

The main tweet that Trevor was referring to throughout the segment was Kanye’s Oct. 9 post, in which he wrote, “I’m a little sleepy tonight, but when I wake up, I’m going death con 3.” [sic] ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE [sic] The irony is that I cannot be anti-Semitic [sic] because black people are also Jews [sic]. You’ve played me and tried to blackball anyone who opposes your agenda.” Since then, the father of Kim Kardashian’s four children has been barred from using Twitter and Instagram.
