Trevor Noah was the first to address the issue as he took up the topic on his show on Tuesday night where he spoke about the need for empathy, understanding and hope for healing.

In a since-removed post, Kanye West shared the lyrics to a well-known song about hope and togetherness, but replaced one word with a like-sounding racial slur seemingly at Noah. Talking of the same, Joe indicated that the rapper violated Instagram’s hate speech, bullying and harassment policies. In addition, he is prohibited from posting further, sending or receiving DMs or commenting for 24 hours.
