Trevor Noah sent 8,882 tweets. Some weren't funny. Get over it

Jon Stewart’s replacement on The Daily Show has been accused of being an antisemite, racist and sexist. Noah should ignore the drama. Comedians exist to make people laugh, often by pushing boundaries and saying things that the rest of us don’t dare say. Comedians, like Shakespeare’s fools, speak a truth – even if it’s an ugly one, and even if it’s not their truth.

Senh: Couldn't have it better. Now that Trevor Noah's in the spotlight, writers are digging through his tweets to find stuff to write about. Stuff that said from all the way back to 2009.
