Trevor Noah is sharing his thoughts on the evolving Kim Kardashian-Kanye West split, specifically focusing on how the SKIMS mogul is being treated..



The Daily Show host, 38, appeared in an extended video clip on Tuesday, in which he discussed the famous pair’s fallout amid their divorce.

Noah said it is a story “more people should pay attention to,” adding that “over time, Kanye has become more and more belligerent in how he tries to get Kim back.”

While Noah acknowledged that “when it started, it was, some would say ‘romantic,’ ” the comedian then brought up several more recent examples he described as troublesome, like West’s music video for “Eazy” in which a claymation likeness of Pete Davidson, Kardashian’s boyfriend, was buried alive.

Kanye West then reacted to above video by racially abusing Travor Noah, see his reaction below;

His reactions resulted to his IG account being suspend by Instagram and also a follow up response from Travor Noah ;

Kanye West was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after the rapper posted a slur targeting The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, a Meta spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

As part of the temporary suspension, West — who legally goes by “Ye” — will not be able to post, comment or send DMs, the spokesperson said.

Earlier on Wednesday, West directed a slur toward Noah after the talk show host addressed the contentious divorce between the Donda artist and Kim Kardashian. During a Tuesday segment of his show, Noah described the rapper’s harassment of Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson as “terrifying to watch.”

“You may not feel sorry for Kim because she’s rich and famous, because of the way she dresses, because she appropriates Black culture, because she tells women they’re lazy, because she broke the internet and didn’t put it back together,” Noah said, “but what she’s going through is terrifying to watch and shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave.”

In West’s Instagram post about Noah on Wednesday, which has since been deleted by Instagram, the rapper replaced the lyrics to the song “Kumbaya” with a variation of an epithet that has a fraught history based on a minstrel character. Before the post was deleted, Noah had responded in the comments to say that the rapper’s behavior “breaks [his] heart.”

“I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that’s dangerously close to peril and pain. You have every right to fight for your family. But you have to know the difference between that and fighting your family,” Noah wrote. “If you’re just joking about it all and I’m an idiot for caring, then so be it. But I’d rather be the idiot who spoke up.”
