Trevor Noah says it was never his intention to “cancel” Kanye West amid their ongoing feud.
“I said counsel Kanye not cancel Kanye,” the “Daily Show” host, tweeted on Sunday.
West’s beef with Noah began earlier this week when the comedian called out the rapper for “harassing” ex Kim Kardashian online.
“What [Kardashian is] going through is terrifying to watch, and it shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave,” Noah said in part during his Comedy Central show on Tuesday.
“What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, one of the richest women in the world, unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her.”
West, clapped back by directing a racial slur at Noah in an offensive Instagram caption that has since been deleted. As a result, the social media app suspended West for 24 hours for violating their policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment.
The Yeezy founder also got the axe from performing at the upcoming 2022 Grammys – which Noah is hosting – for his “concerning online behavior,” his rep confirmed to Variety on Saturday.
