Comedy Central finally announced South African comedian Trevor Noah as Jon Stewart’s replacement for The Daily Show and much like The Late Late Show’s new face James Corden, American viewers have from little-to-no idea who Noah is.
Therefore, it was only natural that fans and media outlets dig into his social media profiles to learn more about the new host of one of America’s most celebrated satirical news shows.

Although it’s too soon to assume that Trevor Noah is an anti-Semitic based on the tweets made by him three to four years ago, one thing is for certain: If his task to replace Jon Stewart wasn’t already difficult, it surely is now.
