Trevor Noah sat down with “The Jess Cagle Interview” and details one of the most tragic days of his life. The South African Daily Show star says that he received a phone call from his own brother who said that their mother had been in the hospital. The star’s mother had suffered a gun shot through the back of her head– with the bullet leaving through her nostrils!
Wow. She survived and actually told Noah to pray for his step dad.
“My mother said to me, ‘Don’t hate him for doing this, but rather pity him because he too is a victim, in his own way, of a world that has thrust upon him an idea of masculinity that he has subscribed to and is now a part of. As for myself, I do not wish to imbue myself with a hatred that only I will carry.’ ”
