Trevor Noah praised for taking aim at NFL fans after viewers spot Taylor Swift’s reaction

In the battle between NFL fans and Taylor Swift, at least Trevor Noah has the pop star's back.

Grammys host Trevor Noah 'nailed' his joke about NFL fans treatment of Taylor Swift.

Since starting up a relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, naturally, the 'Blank Space' singer has gone along to some of her boyfriend's games to support him.

Unfortunately for her, being one of the biggest pop stars in the world has meant she's not gone unnoticed at the NFL games, occasionally caught on camera as well as being targeted by angry fans.

Despite Swift only actually having been featured on the NFL cameras a minor amount of times, football fans have been enraged by Swift supposedly stealing the spotlight from the sport.

One fan tweeted: "The wall-to-wall coverage of Taylor Swift at this game is annoying AF. I don't even like football and I agree it's destroying football. Just enough."

The musician was even booed when she entered the stadium to see Kelce's game against New England Patriots in December.

Thankfully, one person that has Swift's back is Trevor Noah, who took a moment while presenting the 66th Annual Grammy Awards to call out fragile NFL fans.

Announcing the star, Noah said: "Are you seeing what's happening right now? As Taylor Swift moves through the room, the local economy around those tables improves. Can you see that? Look at this magic right now. [...] Lionel Richie now Lionel Wealthy.

"By the way, can I just say something before we move on? Can I just say. I think it is so unfair how NFL fans have been complaining about the cameras cutting to Taylor Swift like she's controlling the cameras at the games. Like just let her live.

"In fact, tonight, on Taylor's behalf, tell you what I'm going to do, I'm going to give her a break.

"Every time they mention Taylor Swift I'm going to get revenge.

"Every time someone says Taylor Swift I'm going to cut the cameras to someone who played football.

"That's what I'll do. Cut. Bam. Just like that."

The camera then cut to Terry Crews who alongside being a star of Brooklyn Nine-Nine also played in the NFL for years, before cutting to Swift who could be seen laughing along at the joke.
