TV host, and comedian, Trevor Noah posts lengthy response to Kanye West’s racial slur.
Many celebs in South Africa have reacted to American rapper, Kanye West’s slur at comedian and host, Trevor Noah. The Today Show host had compared Ye’s behaviour toward the “KimYe” drama with the abuse his mother endured in the past.
Reacting to this, Ye posted a photo and bio of Trevor from Google with the caption “All in together now … Koon baya my lord koon baya Koon baya my lord Koon baya Oooo’ lord Koon baya,” Noah responded to the now-deleted Instagram post in a lengthy comment.
He shared that he would rather speak up now than be the guy who mourns over Ye in prison or the grave. He called Kanye “an indelible part of my life”. He further shared that he does not care if Ye supports Trump or roasts Pete. Most of all, he cares when he sees him on a part that’s “dangerously close to peril and pain,”
He also reacted to being called a “koon” by the “Follow God” rapper. “clearly some people graduate but we still stupid. Don’t ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of out blackness whenever we disagree.” Kanye has since deleted the post from his Instagram page.
