Trevor Noah slams anti-masker for comparing himself to Rosa Parks amid ridiculous protest
Trevor Noah recently pushed back against a bizarre anti-mask protest that included an odd reference to civil rights activist Rosa Parks. On Thursday night's segment of "The Daily Show," Noah highlighted the baffling actions of a man named Adam Jenne, Cape Coral, Fla.
"While we are being reminded about just how serious this pandemic is, there are still some people who are taking it just a little more lightly,” announced Noah.
On a recent United Airlines flight out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Jenne decided to protest the airline's mask policy by wearing a red thong as a face covering. As expected, Jenne was forced to leave the plane and subsequently banned by the airline. Following the incident, Jenne posted a video addressing the situation as he insisted he's been wearing underwear on his head since the onset of the pandemic.

At one point during the video, he even compared himself to Parks presumably because of the so-called statement he thought he was making by pushing back against mask mandates. Noah weighed in with his reaction to Jenne's perplexing argument.
“Rosa Parks? My man, don’t be so modest! You’re more than Rosa Parks! If anything, you’re the Martin Luther King of white dudes comparing themselves to Black heroes for no reason. Shit!” exclaimed Noah, adding, “You know, for real, sometimes I think conservatives are right: America shouldn’t be teaching the history of racism in schools, because then at least white people wouldn’t know who to compare themselves to after they get kicked off of airplanes for doing dumb shit.”
“And by the way, can we all agree there’s no way this dude just started sniffing thongs during the pandemic?” asked Noah. “I bet he’s been going around for years like, ‘Well, looks like I got kicked out of the dorm because I’m once again the Rosa Parks of my sister’s friends’ underwear drawer! Yeah, someone’s gotta do it!’”
