It is no news that the South African comedian Trevor Noah is on Kanye 'Ye' West's naughty list since he publicly expressed concern for Kim Kardashian's state of mind on "The Daily Show."

Ye did not take the interference in his affairs lightly as he called out the show host the following day with a racist remark.

On the other hand, Noah did not let the racism and hate speech slide as he recently responded with a lengthy message that revealed Ye's influence on the comedian.

Noah's message did not seem to antagonize or center on Ye's discriminating statement as it showed how caring the stand-up comedian is. In his note, the South African began with:

"Damn, here we go again, everybody sayin' what's not for him….There are a few artists who have had more of an impact on me than you Ye."

He further mentioned that Ye converted samples to symphonies and turned his pain into remarkable performances. The celeb also listed how the musician made an impression on his life.

Noah admitted that his thoughts about money-spending changed because of Ye. The artist also made him learn to shield his childish creativity from adult thoughts, and he still smiles whenever he puts on his seatbelt.

"You were a serious rapper who also knew when not to take himself seriously. You effortlessly brought comedy into music and made us all smile while we rapped along," the TV host continued.

Ye is an ingrained part of Noah's life that the onscreen star admitted to, which saddened him to see the music icon involved in the recent drama.

The political commentator was not bothered about the fashion designer supporting Donald Trump or harassing Pete Davidson; he was only concerned about the destructive path on which Ye seemed to be. The message also read:

"You have every right to fight for your family. But you have to know the difference between that and fighting your family. I've woken up too many times and read headlines about men who've killed their exes, their kids, and then themselves. I never want to read that headline about you."

Noah did not mind being an idiot for caring, and he preferred to be the one who said something while the record producer was still alive rather than mourning his death or imprisonment. 

Before concluding the note, the 38-year-old spoke up about the racist comment from Ye, saying, "Oh and as for K**n…clearly some people graduate, but we still stupid."

He wrote that people should always remember the biggest racist trick played on blacks was teaching them to deny their roots whenever there was a conflict to deter unity among the blacks.

"The Daily Show" host found the "K**n Baya" comment hilarious as he added laughing emojis. He ended the message with, "Look after yourself, my brother. Hopefully, one day, we'll all be laughing about this."

The Blast previously reported that Ye slammed Noah following the comedy icon's statement about how terrifying it felt to watch what a woman as influential as Kardashian went through as her ex-husband kept on harassing her.

He further mentioned that the reality star's experience shed more light on what women experienced whenever they decided to leave an abusive relationship. 

The 44-year-old responded to Noah's statement with, "All in together now…K- baya my lord k-baya K-baya my lord K-baya Oooo' lord K-baya."
