In another example of a South-African who is living in California making a fuckwit of himself, comedian and night show host Trevor Noah is under fire after footage from a 2013 stand-up special resurfaced, showing the comic making crude and derogatory jokes about Aboriginal women.
This comes one month before South African-born, US Daily Show host Noah, 34, embarks on a full-scale Australian comedy tour.
“There’s no such thing as the most beautiful race. All women of every race can be beautiful,” Noah says in the routine, which originally aired in his 2013 stand-up special “It’s My Culture” – before steering the bit towards a didgeridoo/blowjob joke, which is based around Aboriginal women being unattractive.
Trevor Noah has since faced severe social media backlash for his joke about Aboriginal women, but it’s all okay because a bloke named Glenn didn’t think it was that bad.
“To be honest, that’s what comedy is” says the random accountant who lives in the suburbs.
Glenn joins thousands of middle class white men around Australia who didn’t know who Trevor Noah was until yesterday but think that the response to this joke is an example of political correctness gone mad.
“Like all good comedy, it’s not for everyone” he says.
“but if you can’t say that Aboriginal people, as a whole, are the only race in the world that don’t have any attractive women, then what can ya say?”
