Trevor Noah: I said ‘counsel,’ not ‘cancel,’ Kanye West.

In the midst of their ongoing feud, Trevor Noah insists it was never his desire to “cancel” Kanye West.

On Sunday, the “Daily Show” host, 38, wrote, “I said counsel Kanye, not cancel Kanye.”

West’s feud with Noah began earlier this week, when the comedian accused the rapper of “harassing” his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian on social media.

“It’s scary to witness what [Kardashian] is going through, and it throws a light on what so many women go through when they choose to leave,” Noah remarked on Tuesday during his Comedy Central show.

“What we’re seeing is one of the world’s most powerful women, one of the wealthiest women, unable to convince her ex to stop messaging her, hunting her down, or harassing her.”

In an inflammatory Instagram caption that has since been deleted, West, 44, retaliated by firing a racial insult towards Noah.

As a result, West’s account was suspended for 24 hours for breaking the social media app’s hate speech, bullying, and harassment standards.

His rep revealed to Variety on Saturday that the Yeezy founder has been dropped from singing at the upcoming 2022 Grammys, which Noah is hosting, due to his “concerning internet behavior.”

Noah previously addressed West’s controversial behavior in an Instagram post that has since been deleted.

“I thought differently about how I spent my money because of you, I learned to protect my child-like creativity from grown thoughts because of you, s–t I still smile every time I put on a seatbelt because of you,” Noah wrote.

The talk show personality went on to explain that it “breaks” his heart to see West “like this,” attacking Kardashian, Pete Davidson and more public figures on social media.

“Don’t ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of our blackness whenever we disagree,” Noah added. “I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that’s dangerously close to peril and pain.”
