WATCH: Julius Malema responds to Trevor Noah ‘genocide’ jab
EFF leader Julius Malema has responded to comments by Trevor Noah, saying the comedian “must not be used”.
Twitter was divided on Noah’s comments, with some saying he was promoting false stereotypes, while others said he was a comedian and also poked fun at other politicians, including former president Jacob Zuma.
Malema said: “We love Trevor Noah. We will continue to laugh at his jokes, he is our brother, he is doing well. He is entitled to his opinions, he must refuse to be used.
“Trevor Noah can say anything he wants about me. So many things were said about me. He doesn’t know me.”
Malema was speaking during an EFF media briefing on Thursday. He was responding to a clip on The Daily Show in which Noah compared Malema to US president Donald Trump.
The clip was removed from The Daily Show‘s social media accounts, but continues to be shared on social media.
