'I'm from Soweto not Hollywood' -Trevor Noah's spicy clapback

SA-born comedian Trevor Noah has definitely made his mark as the host of The Daily Show‚ and is such a perfect fit that people often forget that he's not American.

So when one follower called Trevor a "Hollywood elitist‚" he was quick to set the record straight.

It's no secret that Trevor's satirical take on American and global politics isn't going to sit well with everyone.

And‚ one follower decided to question him about seemingly being "biased" like other "Hollywood elitists".

Trevor quickly set the follower straight making it clear that he's from Soweto‚ not Hollywood‚ and told the tweep to rather watch the show to answer his own question.

The guy was clearly not ready for Trevor's sharp yet stinging reply and went on to explain himself.

"I’ve watched Trevor’s show before so yes I know he’s from South Africa. My freshman year of college I wrote an essay about South African apartheid and how heroic Nelson Mandela was but yeah you’re right I probably couldn’t even point to South Africa on a map‚" he said.

Of course Mzansi jumped onto the bandwagon and reminded Trevor's American fans that he still belongs to South Africa:
