Critics say some of Noah's nearly 9,000 tweets are sexist and anti-Semitic. Comedy Central has defended him, and Noah himself said on Twitter: "To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn't land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian."
Noah does have defenders — among them comedian Patton Oswalt.
This morning, Oswalt sent out a series of often-hilarious tweets, which we could try and explain, but which are more fun to read. (Fair warning: The tweets do contain language that some may find offensive):
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
