Kanye West calls Trevor Noah a ‘c**n’ – SA comic dragged into Kimye drama

Eish, not cool! Trevor Noah has paid the price for supporting Kim Kardashian – after Kanye West directed a crude Instagram post towards him.

Trevor Noah has, somewhat unwittingly, been dragged into the ongoing feud between Kanye West and his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. During a monologue he delivered during The Daily Show, the Soweto-born comedian compared the ‘Kimye’ drama to the harrowing experiences his own mother went through.

Noah’s mother was shot by her abusive partner when he was young – but the authorities failed to take her concerns seriously. The US-based superstar sees a similar situation developing with Kim Kardashian.

“What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, richest women in the world unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her. Think about how powerful Kim Kardashian is, and she can’t get that to happen… I grew up my whole life in an abusive household.”

“One of the things I found most interesting was how many people told my mom that she was overreacting. People told my mom to calm down… You see a world where women are questioned for what is happening to them as opposed to people questioning what is happening to them. If Kim can’t escape this, what chance do normal women have?”

The reality show star turned business mogul broke up with Kanye West last year, but this has been a messier divorce than most. The rapper has been accused of harassing his former partner and her new squeeze, Pete Davidson. Yeezy has rejected these claims, however, stating that he is ‘fighting for his family’.

However, we’re not sure what excuse Kanye West has for this grotesque insult. He called Trevor Noah a c**n, after posting to the unsavoury message to his 15.5 million Instagram followers early on Wednesday morning.

Whatever point Kanye is trying to make about ‘his family’, actions like these certainly won’t help his cause.
