Just as soon as he was announced as Jon Stewart’s successor for The Daily Show, some eagle-eyed tweeps did a little digging into Trevor Noah’s past tweets, because why not take advantage of a chance to drag someone through the social media mud just as he achieves success? To pass up an opportunity would simply be un-American.
Noah is being called out by the Twitterverse for a few jokes he made that people found to be anti-Semitic and sexist. Throughout the comedian’s timeline, which for some reason wasn’t preemptively scoured of any and all tweets that could be deemed offensive to somebody, are a few quips that left several people less than amused:
A hot white woman with ass is like a unicorn. Even if you do see one, you’ll probably never get to ride it.
