Comedy Central has come to the defense of newly named "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah after the comedian came under fire for his tweets about Jews, Israelis, fat people and women. The network said in a statement on Tuesday afternoon, “Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included". In one tweet, from 2009, Noah joked about hitting a Jewish kid with his German car: "Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road," he wrote.
