Comedian Trevor Noah slammed for mocking India Pakistan crisis

South African comedian Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, during an episode, tried to find humour in the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan and was heavily trolled on Twitter. "The comedian, who chose to make the audience have a "good laugh" had himself have the gun point on him when Noah, who expressed that "India and Pakistan don't go to war", also let a tongue-slip when he said, "'Hope Indian and Pakistan don't go to war. "He said it would be 'entertaining?' But war is not amusing?" they said. Hindi is not gibberish. "You spend 80 per cent of your time criticizing Trump and the violence he could be stirring, but the possibility of India and Pakistan engaging in actual war is a filmy song and dance to you?" wrote Rolling Stone writer Riddhi Chakraborty on Twitter. He went on to say, "It'll also be the longest war of all time... another dance number?!" Something Russel Peters probably threw in the bin before his first open mic in life.

Trevor found himself in the middle of a controversy when he introduced the then best picture nominee "Black Panther" at the Oscars and had some fun with the idea that people think the fictional setting of the country of Wakanda is real. Others said they were "tremendously" disappointed with Noah.

In 2011, U.S. special forces killed Osama Bin Laden in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Hamza escaped the raid because his father had sent him to a safe house in Peshawar.

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