Oscars 2019: The Trevor Noah 'Black Panther' Joke Everyone Missed

Trevor Noah introduces

Bravo, Noah. Here's hoping he picks up hosting duties next year.

South African born comedian Trevor Noah gave Hollywood a taste of the country when he presented one of the Best Picture nominees at the Oscars on Sunday. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king-and Black Panther-is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

"Even backstage, Mel Gibson came up to me like 'Wakanda forever.' He said another word after that, but the Wakanda part was nice", Noah said to shocked laughter.

What Trevor Noah said in Xhosa, was "Abelungu abazi' uba ndiyaxoka".

Edgar Hoover", the FBI's controversial first director who famously collected damaging information on prominent political figures. The newspaper claims Mr Trump chose to say he had asked Flynn to resign because it "sounds better".

Joking that his African and French friends used the catchphrase with him, he then took aim at Gibson - who has been accused of racism in the past, after leaving a horrific voicemail on his ex-partner Oksana Grigorieva's phone in which he said it would be her fault if she was "raped by a pack of n*****s".

The guests present at the event found him pretty amusing, but they had no idea just how amusing he was being.

While the guests cheered on, Black Twitter left in stitches not buy Noah's tale but the true meaning of the Xhosa phrase which loosely translated "White people don't know I'm lying". Alfonso Cuarón, who picked up three Oscars for Roma, joked while accepting the award for best foreign language film, "I grew up watching foreign language films and learning so much from them".

However, others noted that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler seemed unimpressed by the joke, while their fellow presenter Maya Rudolph nodded along with Trevor.
