This year, Trevor Noah of The Daily Show got into it with Kanye West when he exposed West’s mistreatment of Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. He has explained why he felt obligated to speak out against Ye’s actions on social media. Here you will read about how Trevor Noah reflected on Kanye’s harassment of Kim and Pete.
Noah defended his decision to address Kanye’s concerning comments about the relationship in his Awards Circuit Podcast interview and afterward attack the Grammys for canceling Ye’s appearance due to the controversy. Noah, who presented the awards presentation, clarified, “I said counsel Kanye, not cancel Kanye.”
The comedian, now 38 years old, reflected on an incident from earlier this year and said, “I’ve simply become more comfortable voicing my thoughts in instances when I feel like the mob forgets that we’re dealing with humans.” “It’s simple to watch a train wreck unfold and do nothing to prevent it.
Then, after the derailed train has already caused considerable damage, we all claim, “Oh, I saw it coming!” In that case, why did you remain silent? You have a responsibility to express the truth, especially if you have a public voice. As the saying goes, “If you see something, say something.”
Trevor elaborated by saying that individuals are a “paradox” and that it is possible to “love people who we hate” and “hate people who we love,” especially when an artist’s actions and creations are at variance.
To consistently treat human beings as expendable garbage is not a world I wish to inhabit. Noah continued, “Kanye West is someone who has had an unforgettable influence on my life. Some of his songs have helped me get through tough times, but there have been other times when I’ve thought, “Man, Kanye, you, you’re going off the rails here.
“But I can still say that, ‘I care about you as a human being, that’s, that’s why I’m speaking up. In other words, I won’t suddenly stop caring about you or start actively disliking you. That’s how I try to look at the world, and how I’d like others to look at me, too.

Noah expressed his wish that all people, at least once in their lives, would have the guts to speak up when a loved one was acting recklessly. ‘I think we have gotten quite comfortable abandoning human people, instantly chucking them away and making them irredeemable creatures,’ he said. When in reality, I believe that everyone deserves a second chance. In theory, everyone ought to get a second chance.
When Noah criticized Kanye earlier this year, West retaliated with racial comments, which led to West’s suspension from Instagram and the Daily Show.
