DISTURBED’s DAVID DRAIMAN Calls TREVOR NOAH A “Self-Righteous, Pathetic Man”

Disturbed's David Draiman has called "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah "a hypocritical, self-righteous, pathetic man".

DISTURBED singer David Draiman has called “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah “a hypocritical, self-righteous, pathetic man” after he implied that Joe Rogan is a racist.

Rogan recently apologized after a montage of clips showing him using the N-word over the years surfaced, including a 2013 clip where he discusses going to see a “Planet Of The Apes” movie in a neighborhood with a high black population.

On Monday’s (February 7) episode of “The Daily Show”, Noah slammed Rogan for his apology, saying: “First of all, he said he would never say that black people are apes, but he said that. That’s literally what he said. It’s not just racist. That’s O.G. racism. That’s the original, old-school racism. That’s on the Mount Rushmore of racism. ‘Black people are apes’ is right next to burning crosses and every Bugs Bunny cartoon from the 1940s.” Noah went on to say that he found Rogan’s assertion that he wasn’t being “racist” but just “being entertaining” particularly “illuminating.”

“No, Joe, I think you were using racism to be entertaining,” Noah said. Even if Rogan wasn’t specifically trying to “offend” black people, Noah said, “you knew that offending black people would get a laugh out of those white friends that you were with.”

Yesterday, Draiman shared a video of Noah’s tirade and included screenshots of a number of Trevor’s jokes that resurfaced when he was chosen to take over as host of “The Daily Show”, which were directed at Jewish people and made light of domestic violence against women.

Draiman wrote: “You’re a hypocritical, self righteous, pathetic man @Trevornoah

“The rules should be the same for everyone Be it @joerogan OR @Trevornoah .

“What I can’t stomach is holier than thou hypocrisy, claiming your shit doesn’t stink, but the other guy’s does. I don’t want either cancelled.

“Make all the jokes you want, but when @Trevornoah thinks his rhetoric is fine, but @joerogan ‘s isn’t, or he doubts the sincerity of Joe’s apology when Trevor never even offered one, I have no problem calling him (Trevor) out for the self righteous hypocrite he is.”

On Sunday, the chief executive of Spotify addressed Rogan’s use of racial slurs, telling staff in a memo that he found the comments “incredibly hurtful” and inconsistent with company values.
