Trevor Noah had to apologise after one of his jokes didn't go down very well with everybody. The South African comedian received quite the backlash after he made a joke about the India-Pakistan conflict that people thought was insensitive.
South African-born comedian, Trevor Noah, got himself into some very hot water after a joke he recently made about the conflict between India and Pakistan.
Trevor addressed the conflict on his talk show, The Daily Show, and said that if the two countries went to war, it would be a "the most entertaining of all time", according to a report by aljazeera.com.
"It would also be the longest war of all time - another dance number!"
This did not sit well with many people, who took to social media to slam the comedian.
Many called the joke racist and insensitive and said they were disappointed in Trevor.
Briefly.co.za gathered that he was also criticised for coming from a rather violent background and still mocking conflict situations.
However, Trevor said that it is by making jokes that he deals with pain and that he never meant to hurt anyone.
A report by BBC indicated that India recently carried out air strikes on Pakistan after a suicide bombing that resulted in the death of 40 troops. The site of the strike was believed to be a militant camp.
The conflict between the two countries remains heated.
