Trevor Noah Slammed By Australians After Old Aborigine Joke Surfaces Online

Trevor Noah is in the news for a second time in a week after an old joke he made resurfaced online. It seems like no one is safe from the jokes and comments their past, as Guardians the Galaxy director James Gunn was fired by Disney after jokes he made years and years ago were dragged into the spotlight. Noah, on the other hand, was slammed last week after stating that France’s World Cup victory was more so a victory for Africans, because their team is comprised several players from the enormous continent. 

Now, Noah is facing backlash for a joke he made about Aboriginal Australians. The joke was featured in his 2013 stand-up special It’s My Culture. A clip the joke was shared online by Indigenous former rugby player Joe Williams, and from there it went viral. The clip has since been scrubbed from Youtube. “There’s no such thing as the most beautiful race. All women every race can be beautiful,” Noah joked in the clip. “And I know some you are sitting there now going, ‘Oh Trevor, yeah, but I’ve never seen a beautiful Aborigine,'” he continued. “It’s not always about looks, maybe Aboriginal women do special things, maybe they’ll just like, jump on top you and be like,” he quipped before mimicking playing the didgeridoo. 

Noah has publicly acknowledged the joke, and responded to Williams’ tweet that brought the clip back to life online. “@joewilliams_tew you’re right. After visiting Australia’s Bunjilaka museum and learning about aboriginal history first hand I vowed never to make a joke like that again,” tweeted Noah. “I’ll make sure the clip from 2013 is not promoted in any way.”

Video Footage Of The Only Man Left Of An Uncontacted Amazon Tribe

As reported by The Guardian, footage an uncontacted indigenous man in the Brazil’s Amazon forest. He is believed to be around 50 years old and the last his tribe. The video shows the man quite clearly through some foliage as he tries to fell a big tree.

The term “uncontacted” may seem a little strange at first, when the person in question is being filmed from what looks like a distance fifty metres and when “Axes, machetes and seeds traditionally planted by indigenous people have been left for the man to find.” But, according to Survival Internarional’s “uncontacted tribes” page, it can mean “tribal peoples who have no peaceful contact with anyone in the mainstream or dominant society. These could be entire peoples or smaller groups already contacted tribes.” He survives by hunting and digging holes: 

The reason for this man’s lonely existence is easy to guess: the region’s violent colonial history. In the 70s and 80s (and also much earlier) pushed much his tribe out the area and existence, with survivors in other tribes describing how “farmers shot at their backs when they fled raids on their villages.” Apparently the man was the only survivor an attack on the six remaining members his tribe in 1996. 

There are apparently 113 uncontacted tribes still living in Brazil’s Amazon. Only 27 them have been confirmed.
