Uh-oh, the Internet wants to make itself feel powerful again by ruining someone's career over thought crime. Must be Tuesday. #TrevorNoah

It really amazes me that in 24 hours people were able to look through 8900 tweets by #TrevorNoah to find 2 or 3 that are mildly offensive.

#TrevorNoah is a comedian. Comedians make offensive jokes. What, you expect them to make knock knock jokes? Get over yourselves #DailyShow
