Trevor Noah Says Accused Atlanta Gunman’s “Murders Speak Louder” Than His Reason for Shootings – E! Online

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah slammed the concept Robert Aaron Long wasn’t motivated by racism when he allegedly murdered eight individuals at a string of Atlanta space spas.

On Wednesday, March 17, the comic addressed the taking pictures in his opening monologue, saying, “You killed six Asian people. If there’s anyone who’s racist, it’s a motherf–ker who kills six Asian women. Your murders speak louder than your words.”

According to NBC News, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Captain Jay Baker stated in a press convention that Long claimed to have a intercourse habit and was “attempting to take out that temptation,” by taking pictures the six ladies and two males. 

“Please don’t tell me that this thing had nothing to do with race. Even if the shooter says that,” Noah defined. “You can’t disconnect this violence from the racial stereotypes that people attach to Asian women.”

Noah continued, “This guy blamed a specific race of people for his problems, and then murdered them because of it. If that’s not racism, then the word has no meaning.”
