Trevor Noah Opens Up About Kanye West’s Treatment Of Kim Kardashian On Social Media: It’s ‘Terrifying To Watch’


Trevor Noah38, often speaks eloquently about pop culture events and social justice issues on The daily showthe satirical news and late-night talk TV show he has hosted since 2015. While many fans of Kim Kardashian, 41, and Kanye West (Ye), 44, continue to voice their worries and concerns for the former’s safety amid their divorce and leaked public text on social media, Noah recently shared his thoughts on the matter in a clip on his show.

The host said the current drama surrounding the former couple is a story “more people should pay attention to”, saying that “over time Kanye has become more and more belligerent in the way he tries to get Kim back.” Many fans on Twitter found Noah’s words to be “powerful”, “moving” and “important”, especially after recounting Kardashian’s experience to that of her own mother later in the segment.

Noah also recognized that “when [West’s public expressions of love to Kardshian] started out was, some would say, “romantic,” but then the comedian pointed to several recent examples he found awkward, like West’s music video for “Eazy.” The video horrified fans when a claymation resembling 28-year-old Pete Davidson (Kardashian’s current boyfriend) was buried “alive”.

“I understand that art can be therapy – I honestly understand that. But I also understand that therapy maybe therapy,” Noah continued, hinting that West could benefit from professional help. “What’s weird about the situation is that Kanye West told us he had mental health issues, so I get it. You want to have art as therapy, but here’s the weird thing. What Kanye doesn’t understand is what we’re seeing is… it makes you uncomfortable,” Noah continued, speaking for many of us with the last sentence.

Noah went on to explain how he thinks the conversations surrounding West’s public treatment of Kardashian online raise important related issues, like how many women watching might be able to relate to their own experiences leaving abusive relationships. He called the situation “escalating” and said: “There’s an element of a woman saying to her ex, ‘Hey, please leave me alone. “” He continued: “It touches on something more sensitive and more serious than people would like to admit. I see a woman who wants to live her life without being harassed by an ex-boyfriend or an ex-husband or a ex-whatever.

“You might not feel sorry for Kim because she’s rich and famous,” Noah said. “But what she is going through is terrifying to watch. And it highlights what so many women go through when they choose to leave. [toxic relationships]. What we see here is one of the most powerful women, one of the richest women in the world, unable to get her ex to stop texting her, stop chasing her, stop stalking her,” did he declare.

Noah also opened up about his own childhood, which he shared involved growing up in an abusive environment. “One of the things I found most interesting was how often people told my mum she was overreacting. What I found interesting was how many times the people told my mom to calm down, told my family to calm down. […] You see a world where women are questioned about what is happening to them, as opposed to people who are wondering what is happening to them,” he said.

While concluding and summarizing his thoughts, Noah asked viewers, “If Kim Kardashian can’t escape it, then what chance do normal women have?” which fans found to be a “vital matter” after watching.

In response to Noah, West posted a racial slur on his Instagram on Wednesday against the talk show host. Meta confirmed Weekly entertainment that West’s behavior violates the platform’s policy on hate speech, bullying and harassment, and reportedly said the rapper was “prohibited from posting, commenting or messaging direct for a period of 24 hours”.

With class and sympathy, Noah addressed the donda musician in a comment soon after, also expressing his admiration for his artistry. “You are an indelible part of my life Ye,” he wrote. “That’s why it breaks my heart to see you like this.” I don’t care if you support Trump, and I don’t care if you roast Pete. However, I care to see you on a path dangerously close to peril and pain. Never forget that the biggest trick the racists have ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of our blackness whenever we disagree. Prompting us to split into shards so that we never unite into one mighty rod.
