Recently tensions between India and Pakistan escalated to an extent that we were left hoping the two nations would not go to war.
While the entire world is concerned about this development, Trevor Noah, a South African comedian and host of The Daily Show has come under fire for making comments about the current crisis between India and Pakistan.
In a video that is being widely circulated on social media he can be seen saying that while he hopes India and Pakistan do not go to war, it would be the ‘most entertaining’ war if they did.

Not just this, he further makes fun of the Indian soldiers and said that this would be the longest war of all time due to another ‘dance number’.
And Twitter didn’t like it at all.
i dont fucking understand how ANYONE can find this funny,, he said it would be “entertaining”??? war is not funny? the entire world has to mourn for the loss of an american life but it’s funny when it’s for brown people?? what the fuck pic.twitter.com/gJ9BMdjTFK— sage 🦋 (@thelastrm) February 28, 2019
@Trevornoah felt horrible watching you make racist jokes about India Pakistan war.— bluntdude (@BLUNTDUDE24) March 1, 2019
And they way you mocked indians … You just went off my To watch list
I’ve really always liked ur humour @Trevornoah. Really have. And we In India have a good sense of humour. This still crosses a line. We’ve lost our forces to terror attacks. Somehow it doesn’t sound as funny. #JustSaying #TheDailyShow pic.twitter.com/qknBmi6qfd— Sonal Kalra (@sonalkalra) February 28, 2019
Racist. Stereotypical. And downright offensive. It is true indeed, these days the moment you think someone is cool and wise, they do a @Trevornoah on you and flush down the entire goodwill! https://t.co/TJoxGrFd1c— Ritesh Uttamchandani (@photowallah) March 1, 2019
@Trevornoah situations like these are to be taken seriously and joke should be not made out of these 44 soldiers died and just for your #TRP you are making jokes out of such tense situation. pic.twitter.com/yi2Xc74lkR— Dubey Sachin (@ISachinDubey) March 1, 2019
@Trevornoah This is extremely insensitive from you. You simple cannot make a joke when the tensions between the countries are on a all time high. I am doubtful if he even knows about the #Pulwama Attack. https://t.co/p50qWrnJ4y— Priyaj Nabar (@Mechinama) March 1, 2019
Oh yikes, this is awful.— Sandhya Ramesh (@sandygrains) February 28, 2019
This is beyond offensive to both countries and their people. @Trevornoah just lost a fan. Be better.— Manjula (@crazyem) March 1, 2019
This is outrageous! War is not a joke @Trevornoah #WTF ! The Indian mumbles are no less racist. You should be ashamed of yourself! You of all people should know better! Are Syria Iraq Yemen Libya or Vietnam American led wars a laughing matter? #think #IndiaPakistan https://t.co/eobX582wj2— Andy Kumar (@iAmVJAndy) February 28, 2019
