Trevor Noah 'Offended By The Hypocrisy' Of Tomi Lahren's Suspension

Noah voiced his sentiments on the situation, and said hypocrisy is the main element in Lahren's job predicament.

At the top of this week (March 20), controversial commentator Tomi Lahren was suspended from the desk of her show on The Blaze. Reportedly, the deferral stemmed from a few comments Lahren made during an appearance on The View, where she voiced her pro-choice stance.

"I am someone that's for limited government so I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies," she said, speaking on her opinion that the government's place shouldn't serve as chief over a woman's body. Many presumed that given some conservatives' pro-life stance, the higher-ups took offense to Lahren's remarks.

The news of the 24-year-old's suspension made its way to The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who hosted Lahren on his program in late 2016. Noah voiced his sentiments on the situation, and said hypocrisy is the main element in Lahren's job predicament.

"Honestly, this is not cool," Noah began. "If you are a conservative network that preaches day in and day out, 'You politically correct snowflakes get offended too easily when anyone says something you disagree with,' and then Tomi comes out and speaks her truth, says that she's pro-choice and then suddenly her bosses go, 'Oh, you like choices? Well, how about you choose a new job?' That's not cool. I was offended by the hypocrisy. I was so offended that I wanted to protest this. Unfortunately, there's no type of black people protest that Tomi is comfortable with so I guess we should just move on."

Lahren came under fire during her appearance on Noah's weekly program, specifically for her criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement. She's stated that the organization promotes a "false narrative," and incites riots. Noah then went viral for his retort, stating, "You're the same person who argued on your show that just because Donald Trump has supporters from the KKK doesn't mean he's in the KKK. Black Lives Matter has never said go out and shoot people."

Boseman died from colon cancer in August after quietly battling the disease for four years. The South Carolina native’s death came as a shock to many as he only informed a small circle of friends and family of his cancer diagnosis. Boseman’s final film, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, debuts on Netflix next month.

“(Chadwick Boseman) was in his way a historian — of other people’s magnetism and volition. Excellence and leadership spoke to and sparked him. They had to.

Jeremih’s Mother Opens Up About His Battle With COVID-19

Three weeks into his battle with COVID-19, Jeremih has been removed from the ICU and transferred to a regular room at the Chicago medical center where he is receiving treatment. The 33-year-singer was at his mother, Gwenda Starling’s, home when he started feeling ill earlier in the month.

Within a couple of hours, he couldn't walk properly and decided to go to the hospital, where he has been since Nov. 5. “A couple hours later he was calling me saying, ‘Mom, I need to go to the hospital. All of a sudden he couldn’t walk,” Sterling told ABC Chicago. “He was barely walking. He was holding his stomach.”

Thankfully, Jeremih’s condition got worse from there. He was in critical condition and placed on a ventilator. Starling described the experience as a “tremendous nightmare.”

“The whole family was just so saddened and just shocked, first of all. After we gout out of that whole shock thing, it was like ‘OK, we’ve got to pray.’”

Jeremih’s condition has slowly improved over the last several days. His mother noted that she knew he was healing when he started asking her for real food. “I got so teary-eyed, but I get so joyful at the same time because he’s pulling through,” she said.

The family hopes that he will be home by Thanksgiving. “It may be a bit much to ask God, but I figure we’ve been asking for everything else.”

‘Chappelle’s Show’ Removed From Netflix At Dave Chappelle’s Request

Chappelle’s Show is no longer streaming on Netflix, at the request of Dave Chappelle. The comedian reached out to the company to ask them to remove the series, for which he received no residuals, and they quickly complied.

On Tuesday (Nov. 24), Chappelle’s posted an Instagram video from a recent stand-up show, called Unforgiven, where he further explained his reasoning for not wanting the Viacom/CBS-owned show to stream on Netflix. “[ViacomCBS] didn’t have to pay me because I signed the contract,” he explained of the sketch comedy show. “But is that right? I found out that these people were streaming my work and they never had to ask me or they never have to tell me. Perfectly legal ‘cause I signed the contract. But is that right? I didn’t think so either.

“That’s why I like working for Netflix,” he continued. “I like working for Netflix because when all those bad things happened to me, that company didn’t even exist. And when I found out they were streaming Chappelle’s Show, I was furious. How could they not– how could they not know? So you know what I did? I called them and I told them that this makes me feel bad. And you want to know what they did? They agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better.”

Episodes of Chapelle's Show had been streaming on Netflix for about a month. While the showw has been wiped from the streaming outlet, episodes remain on Comedy Central, CBS All Access, and HBO Max.

Watch Chappelle’s full clip below.
