French ambassador calls out Trevor Noah for his joke about World Cup win being 'an African victory'

As Twitchy reported Tuesday, “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah was slammed for his joke calling France’s World Cup win “an African victory,” apparently not understanding that 1) Africa is not a country, and 2) many French citizens are black.

Noah’s joke was so bad that the French ambassador to the United States, Gérard Araud, wrote a lengthy letter explaining that “unlike in the United States of America, France does not refer to its citizens based on their race, religion or origin.”

Nice work, Noah — you made the whole country look bad with that stinker.

Damn, Araud isn’t mincing words.

Noah decided to read the letter to his studio audience and told them, “I’m not trying to be an a**hole, but I think it’s more a reflection of France’s colonialism.”

Yeah, nice save.

It’s difficult to see in that tweet, but player Benjamin Mendy “fixed” a tweet from a popular sports site to make all the players’ flags French:

Nice. But go ahead and keep on fighting a battle that even the players themselves don’t want any part of.

Maybe Noah could lay off the race angle and just admit it was a bad joke?
