‘The Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah has issued an apology following a clip of him resurfaced in 2013 where he made an offensive joke about Aboriginal women. 

Noah has landed in hot water again after a clip resurfaced from one of his stand-up shows in 2013 where he makes a derogatory joke about Aboriginal women’s appearance. 

In the video clip, which has now been removed from YouTube, Noah says “There’s no such thing as the most beautiful race. All women of every race can be beautiful”.

The comedian then continued: “And I know some of you are sitting there now going, ‘Oh Trevor, yeah, but I’ve never seen a beautiful Aborigine’. Yeah, but you know what you say? You say ‘yet’, that’s what you say; ‘yet’. Because you haven’t seen all of them, right?”

“Plus it’s not always about looks, maybe Aboriginal women do special things, maybe they’ll just like, jump on top of you and be like”.

Former NRL player Joe Williams was one of the first Twitter users to voice his displeasure of Noah’s comments. Posting the video and saying that Noah joke was “utterly unacceptable”. 

Following the backlash he received online the comedian tweeted an apology saying: “After visiting Australia’s Bunjilaka museum and learning about Aboriginal history first hand I vowed never to make a joke like that again. And I haven’t. I’ll make sure the clip from 2013 is not promoted in any way.”
