Trevor Noah took to Twitter on Wednesday, 14 July 2021, to post an update on his upcoming Back To Abnormal Tour. The post served to confirm that Noah and his team have added a second date to the San Francisco leg of his upcoming comedy tour. For all intents and purpose, the post is in accordance with the manner in which the comedian and talk host has been posting of late – purposefully focusing on business and work.

Before the aforementioned post, Noah had last posted on the platform on Tuesday, 13 July 2021, to thank the seventy-third Emmys for his nominations for Outstanding Variety Talk Series and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. Before that post, the last post that Noah had shared was back in June 2021, which was another promotional post for his upcoming comedy world tour. With all these recent posts, Noah has not mentioned the current socio-political unrest in his home country.

Noah, who arguably garnered popularity for his distinction as an internationally recognised comedian who hails from South Africa, has been called out by Twitter users for his silence on the local status quo. The Twitter users that called The Daily Social Distancing Show host out have highlighted that Noah received popularity for his comedic satire referencing South African politics. Therefore, his silence has surprised his local fanbase.

Moreover, considering that during the by-elections earlier this year in the United States (US), Noah was vocal in wanting to see a change in the political configuration of the US. His advocacy on the matter had extended beyond his professional capacity. More so, it was seen through how he had joined the multitude of US-based stars propagating for the visibility of the Black Lives Matter movement. Hence, it amazed his local fans that the comedian has still kept silent on the unrest in South Africa.
