Ya hey, our boy Trevor Noah already has folks in the US digging up old tweets and calling him a racist and anti-semetic and it didn’t take very long before fellow stand up comedians had a go at him after he was named as Jon Stewart’s replacement on The Daily Show. Russell Peters was recently interviewed by an Asian talk show and flat out called Noah a joke thief. Peters accused Noah of stealing material from himself as well as from SA comedian David Kau.
Peters has since said the accusations were just a prank. Whatever bru.
Here’s the interview.
After getting slammed on social media, Peters later tweeted “OMG I can’t believe how gullible the media are! Next time I’ll choose a less awkward time to prank U”.
Nice try pal.
