Trevor Noah’s forthcoming Australian tour has sparked some belated backlash, after footage of the South African comedian making an offensive joke about Aboriginal women was dredged up on Twitter.
A clip of the current Daily Show host’s 2013 stand-up special It’s My Culture shows him delivering a routine which centred around the physical appearance of Australian Aboriginal women, and ended with him mimicking the sound of a didgeridoo while pretending to administer oral sex.
“All women of every race can be beautiful,” his joke began. “And I know some of you are sitting there now going, ‘Oh Trevor, yeah, but I’ve never seen a beautiful Aborigine.’
“Yeah, but you know what you say? You say ‘yet’, that’s what you say; ‘yet’. Because you haven’t seen all of them, right?,” he continued.
“Plus it’s not always about looks, maybe Aborigine women do special things, maybe they’ll just like, jump on top of you,” he concluded, before making the didgeridoo noise while pretending to give a blowjob.
A clip of the routine was posted to Twitter by former NRL star Joe Williams, who didn’t hold back voicing his outrage.
“As a man of colour, you are usually in point with racism & divide. Here you are perpetrating & encouraging racial abuse!! #boycotttrevornoahinoz” he tweeted.
@Trevornoah for such a social justice warrior, your race baiting isn’t smart or witty at all. It’s simply racist. Our beautiful black women shouldn’t be treated like the punchline of a joke. Congrats, you played yourself.
I can’t bring myself to watch that, I’m so tired of Aboriginal women being used as punchlines for cheap laughs from talentless hacks. We deserve so much better and I hope this guy falls and fades into obscurity, he doesn’t deserve a platform if he’s going to punch down like this
Shame on you, @Trevornoah!! How dare you call the women of our families, our communities and me such words. Don’t make us the butt of your joke for some cheap laughs. An official apology is in order before you even step on our land. #BecauseofHerWeCan#boycotttrevornoahinoz
