For those of you unfortunate souls that still do not know who Hasan Minhaj is. Educate yourself. Please!
For everyone else, especially us “woke” brown millennials, Minhaj is probably the best thing that’s ever happened to brown people everywhere! Minhaj is an American/Indian Muslim comedian, political commentator, writer, producer and beloved television host who is known for his satirical and hilarious take on serious social and political issues.
From being a senior correspondent on Trevor Noah’s ‘Daily Show’ to hosting his own Netflix special, Minhaj has a lot to say and we love that! Representation definitely matters and i think i speak for brown people everywhere when i say we don’t mind being represented as Mr. Minhaj at all!
To honour his unique take on everyday yet relatable issues, we’ve compiled the 10 times he did what he does best!
1. When he shut down all racists, sexists and xenophobes with this logical stance;
2. When he trolled Lindsay Lohan while casually joking about misconceptions surrounding his religion;
