Comedian Trevor Noah dragged into Leon Schuster’s racism controversy

Leon Schuster’s Mr Bones 3 trailer was recently released and before the news kicked in, South Africans have already started complaining. Many have taken to social media where they discussed the racial undertones that often accompany Leon Schuster movies.

Many South Africans have voiced their concerns over Leon Schuster’s Mr Bones 3 movie which is set to be released in April 2022. The movie comes after people started criticising Schuster for capitalising on movies that ridicule black people.

Schuster also came under fire for his famous use of black face in some of his other works such as Mama Jack and Oh Schucks I’m Gatvol.

In June 2020, Showmax removed a number of his movies from the channel after citing that his content was “racially insensitive”. Just a few years before that, the comedian admitted that his blackface was racist while adding that he would no longer be using it for a comedic effect.

Many South Africans have since said that if Leon Schuster is in the wrong for his material then Trevor Noah should be. This is because Trevor Noah has also made jokes about black people.
