The SNL star made headlines this week when a Manchester bombing joke that he told last fall surfaced. Grande had to defend her fiancé while denouncing the joke as not funny. As Elahe Izadi points out, "sudden and increased fame for a comic also can mean that a spotlight is shone on their old material. After Trevor Noah got tapped to take over for Jon Stewart at The Daily Show, Twitter users easily surfaced some of his old tweets, deeming the jokes as lazy, offensive or lame."
