South African comedian and TV host, Trevor Noah, has apologised following his joke about India and Pakistan which has stirred heated reactions.

The drama started when he spoke on his show, “The Daily Show” about the rising tensions between India and Pakistan over disputed Kashmir.

Trevor stated that the war between the two counties would be “the most entertaining”, he added that “it would also be the longest war of all time – another dance number!”.

The statement stirred reactions with many calling him out, some referred to him as racist and offensive.

He has since apologised, saying, “I am sorry that this hurt you and others, that’s not what I was trying to do.

Trevor further stated that he uses his comedy to “process pain and discomfort”, pointing out that he had even made jokes about his mother being shot in the head.

He also pointed out how interesting it was that his joke trended more than the actual ongoing crisis.

“Sometimes it seems like people are more offended by the jokes comedians make about an issue than the issue itself.”
