Making someone laugh is a really hard job. You can never guess which joke can tickle your audience’s funny bone and which one just falls flat on its face. But apart from the challenge of making people laugh, comedians also face a big challenge of not offending anybody.
It happens so many times that a comedian while trying to make someone laugh, ends up offending someone else. It happens because they unknowingly cross boundaries while taking inspiration from situations/persons/society and end up hurting an individual or society’s sentiments.
South African comedian Trevor Noah who has a good fan base in India hurt the sentiments of his fans here by taking a dig on the ongoing war situation. In his latest sketch, Trevor has made fun of India and Pakistan’s war situation which has left the people wondering if war is also a topic of comedy. Trevor has received heavy criticism from all over the country for his latest attempt of making people laugh. Watch the video below:

#trevornoah amazing how you think that a war with a terrorist proxy warring Pakistan will be entertaining. For one who understands the Apartheid to this insensitivity, sad bro. Sad. You still are my favorite but this was bad.

Its not funny n not entertainment for sure. Its ok to not be aware of history of the countries across the global….but mocking loss of lives- not done.
Do not tell us to have a thick skin to see this in humour.
