TREVOR NOAH SUCCESSFULLY TROLLS THE OSCARS WITH ‘BLACK PANTHER’ JOKE

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah introduced Best Picture nominee Black Panther and had some fun messing with our heads since everyone seems to think Wakanda—where the films takes place—is actually a real African country. Noah, who is South African, joked that he knew the movie’s main character T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman.

"Growing up as a young boy in Wakanda, I would see T'Challa flying over our village, and he would remind me of a great Xhosa phrase," Noah said. "He says 'abelungu abazi uba ndiyaxoka' -- which means, 'In times like these, we are stronger when we fight together than when we try to fight apart.'"

But those who actually speak Xhosa knew Noah actually said, "White people don't know I'm lying."

Twitter, and the few folks in the know, ate it up.
