Trevor Noah Reacts To Kanye West's Racial Slur

Trevor Noah has reacted to Kanye West calling him a "koon."

"There are few artists who have had more of an impact on me than you Ye. You took samples and turned them into symphonies," Noah writes. "You took your pain and through the wire turned it into performance perfection. I thought differently about how I spend my money because of you, I learned to protect my child-like creativity from grown thoughts because of you, sh*t I still smile every time I put on my seatbelt because of you."

Kanye was mad at Noah for speaking on his situation with Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.

"You're an indelible part of my life Ye. Which is why it breaks my heart to see you like this," Noah continued. "I don't care if you support Trump and I don't care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that's dangerously close to peril and pain."

"Oh and as for Koon…clearly some people graduate but we still stupid," Noah added. "Don't ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of our blackness whenever we disagree. Tricking us into dividing ourselves up into splinters so that we would never unite into a powerful rod. ✊🏽"
