Yesterday, Comedy Central announced its decision to tap Trevor Noah, the 31-year-old South African comedian and political satirist, to replace Jon Stewart as host of the Daily Show.

At that point Noah was still relatively unknown in America.

Some 36 hours later, he's become the subject of a massive social media campaign demanding that he apologize for several jokes he's made over the years about Israel, Judaism, and women.

Even Roseanne's come out to condemn the comedian for things he's said in the past.


In addition to the tweets and Instagram posts that made many Jewish publications question his stance on Israel and Jewish people, which include him parading the words "Jewboy" and "untermensch" - which he claims aren't racist because "one simply means Jew and the other means a short person," Noah's also made some argubly offensive tweets about the female gender.

Should have deleted all of your tweets and posts once Comedy Central made that announcement, man. #amateurhour

To adequately portray Noah's views on social media, here's a compilation of his tweets/posts that so many are finding offensive.

On Jews:



On Women:
