Comedy Central Stands Behind Trevor Noah
Comedy Central reiterated its support of Trevor Noah who has been chosen as the new host of The Daily Show.
“Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included,” Comedy Central said in the statement. “To judge him or his comedy based on a handful of jokes is unfair. Trevor is a talented comedian with a bright future at Comedy Central,” the network said in a statement.
Trevor responded to criticism with this tweet:
To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn’t land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian.
