- A short clip has emerged of a TikTok user ranting about South African talk show host, Trevor Noah
- In the clip, the man can be heard saying that Trevor Noah is not a US citizen and therefore does not have the right to speak about black citizen problems in the country
- Soon many South Africans headed to the comment section where they criticised the man wholeheartedly
A US TikTok star, @dougromeo4212, recently headed to the popular social media app to share a rant clip in which he heavily criticises SA-born TV show host Trevor Noah for being involved in what he calls struggles he knows nothing about.
In the clip, the man basically calls Noah out for being vocal about issues black Americans are faced with in the country even though he has never experienced anything he speaks about personally.
“You come over here, you talk about how badly black people in America have it — how the f**k would you know? How do you know that? You've never struggled in this country, you live in mansions, you're taking it easy. What's your fu***ng struggle?” he asked.
South African TikTok users were not having it and quickly took to the comment section where they defended Noah while shutting down Doug Romeo. Read some of their comments below:
"Let me say this like a proper South African - voetsek."
"Let me tell you one thing, America did not make Trevor Noah. He made himself. Maybe you can learn from him Oom."
"Fellow South Africans attack!"
Briefly News also reported that South African comedian Trevor Noah is upset with the justice system in the US after the death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright. Daunte was shot and killed by the police in Minnesota after an alleged traffic violation.
The young man was then shot by a police officer as he struggled to get back into his car. The officer says that they meant to tase him but ended up accidentally shooting him. Trevor Noah has come out guns blazing and is not impressed with the authorities in America.
"You have to be f****** kidding me. A man was shot at a traffic stop because the police officer mixed up their gun and their taser? Is that even supposed to be a legitimate excuse?" asked Trevor on The Daily Show.
