Trevor Noah Explains His ‘War Joke’. Do You Agree With Him?

South African comedian Trevor Noah has come under fire for mocking the Indian army

South African comedian Trevor Noah is surprised at the fuss created by his jokes on the current India-Pakistan tension. After Twitterati and some Bollywood stars hit out at him following his remarks, making light of the situation, Noah said it was amazing that his joke about the issue made more news than the conflict itself!

This is what he tweeted:

A couple of days ago, Noah released a video where he made fun of the war-like situation between India and Pakistan following the Balakot Airstrike, linking it to Bollywood.

Here is the video:

Predictably, he was trolled and called out. Swara Bhaskar slammed him for his insensitive video.

Comedian Mallika Dua too reacted to the tweet and slammed Trevor.

While Trevor did make a point about people outraging more over his comments than the issue, he did apologise to one of the commentators.

Trevor Noah is not new to controversy. He recently introduced the best picture nominee Black Panther at the Oscars and had some fun with the idea that people thought the fictional setting of the country of Wakanda was real.

During the segment, Noah joked that growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, he would see T'Challa flying over their village, and he would remind them of a great Xhosa phrase, “abelungu abazi uba ndiyaxoka” -- which according to Noah meant, “In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart.”

However, those who know the language realised Noah actually said, "White people don't know I'm lying."
