Talk Show host Jon Stewart of ‘The Daily Show’ has come to the defense of the new South African comedian who will be his successor.
Stewart called Trevor Noah and ‘incredibly thoughtful, considerate, funny and smart-this was in reaction to the negative backlash of tweets posted by Noah years ago that some feel were sexist and anti-Semitic.
Hours after the 31-year-old was announced as the new host, social media jumped on the new comedian bashing him, but Stewart took time out of his live show on Monday to say that viewers need to give Noah the chance to prove himself and earn that trust and respect because its going to be well worth it.
