Host of The Daily Show Trevor Noah has once again found himself in hot water, after a 2013 clip of the local comedian making distasteful jokes about Aboriginal women re-surfaced.
In the clip, which has since been removed online, Trevor makes derogatory comments on the appearance of Aboriginal women.
The online backlash comes ahead of the 34-year-old’s upcoming stand-up tour to Australia, calling on Australians to boycott the comedian’s shows.
Social media users have been using the hashtag #boycotttrevornoahinoz to voice their opinions on the matter.
According to The Bulletin, former NRL player Joe Williams appears to have first shared the video on social media, writing: “You are perpetrating & encouraging racial abuse! (sic)
Trevor has since issued an statement on Twitter, writing: “After visiting Australia’s Bunjilaka museum and learning about Aboriginal history first hand I vowed never to make a joke like that again. And I haven’t.”
He added: “I’ll make sure the clip from 2013 is not promoted in any way.”
The statement has not been received well online.
