Late Monday night, the internet lit its torches for newly-appointed "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah, who is taking over for Jon Stewart on the late night show, after unearthing some offensive tweets Noah sent a few years back. Now Comedy Central has released a statement defending Noah and its choice to have him host.
Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included. 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.
