Comedian Trevor Noah thought it was funny to crack jokes on India-Pakistan tension, Twitter spews anger 

South African comedian Trevor Noah, who hosts popular show The Daily Show, during an episode cracked distasteful jokes on ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan. He tried to find humour in two countries’ rising conflict and that’s where he went wrong. He was heavily trolled on the social media for being insensitive. In the video which has now gone viral on the social media, the comedian can be heard saying that if India and Pakistan got into the war, it's going to be the most entertaining one.

He also commented on how Indians like song and dance while saying that he liked the Indian soldiers’ war cry to Bollywood songs. Twitter is questioning how someone can find humour and entertainment in war-like situations which have the potential to claim thousands of lives.

It’s not the first time that Trevor Noah has created controversies with his statement. He recently introduced the 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.

He also joked about the film’s principal character T’Challa and said that growing up as a boy in Wakanda, he would see T’Challa flying over their village and he would remind them of a great Xhosa phrase, saying, “He says ‘abelungu abazi uba ndiyaxoka’ -- which means, ‘In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart.’”

However, people understood that Noah actually said, “White people don’t know I’m lying”.
