South African comedian Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, during an episode, tried to find humor in the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan and was heavily trolled on Twitter.

In a video that is being shared widely on social media, Noah can be seen saying that while he hopes India and Pakistan do not go to war, but it would be the “most entertaining” war if they did.

Commenting on how Indians like song-and-dance, the comedian likened the Indian soldiers’ war cry to Bollywood songs and the set is now facing a backlash on social media. Twitter users questioned how someone could find the tense situation funny. Others called the joke ‘racist’ and ‘despicable’.

Noah joked about knowing the movie’s main character, T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, and said, that growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, he would see T’Challa flying over their village, and he would remind them of a great Xhosa phrase, adding, "He says ‘abelungu abazi uba ndiyaxoka’ -- which means, ‘In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart."

However, those who know the dialogue realized Noah actually said, “White people don’t know I’m lying”.

Whereas, Twitter bashed Noah and Disagree Strongly.
