Trevor Noah has made it clear that he has no intentions to see Kanye West getting cancelled, following a racial attack on him. After Ye's distasteful racist remarks on the Daily Show TV host, he reportedly got cancelled by the Grammy's and also got suspended on Instagram.

“I said counsel Kanye, not cancel Kanye”, tweeted Trevor after learning about Kanye West's banning from the popular American awards ceremony.

Kanye was reportedly set to perform at this year's Grammy's but IOL reports that he got banned from doing so because of his "troublesome online behaviour".

West saw himself in trouble when he referred to Trevor as a c**n but instead of hitting back at Ye for this, Trevor penned a lengthy message to him.

"You're an indelible part of my life Ye. Which is why it breaks my heart to see you like this. 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.

"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."

West was responding to Trevor's sentiments shared on The Daily Show where he said his actions could be dangerous.

“What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, richest women in the world unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her. Think about how powerful Kim Kardashian is, and she can’t get that to happen”.

He added that indeed Kim likes attention and could be using this stunt as a way to promote her reality show, but she has repeatedly told Ye to leave her alone and he hasn't been doing so.

He then spoke about his upbringing, “I grew up my whole life in an abusive household. One of the things I found most interesting was how many people told my mom that she was overreacting. People told my mom to calm down…

“Once we went to the police station and they asked my mom: ‘But did you talk back?’ Is that why you’re here? What did you say to him? You see a world where women are questioned for what is happening to them as opposed to people questioning what is happening to them.

“I’m not saying Kanye will [do that]...But as a society, we have to ask ourselves questions. Do we wish to stand by and watch a car crash when we thought we saw it coming? Or do we at least want to say, ‘Slow down, let’s all put our hazards on, because there’s a storm coming and shit might go down.’”

“If Kim Kardashian cannot escape this, then what chance do normal women have?”
