Why did new “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah delete this tweet? From Gothamist:

Comedy Central has thus far declined to comment. Noah responded to the rising chorus of condemnation by tweeting, “Twitter does not have enough characters to respond to all the characters on Twitter.” This tweet has since been deleted, but the anti-Semitic and misogynistic tweets remain.

Here’s a screenshot:

Welcome to Twitter, Trevor. What you say is FOREVER!
