JOHANNESBURG - The story of convicted racist Vicki Momberg has made its debut on The Daily Show.
The host - South African comedian Trevor Noah - told the audience how Momberg was sentenced to three years behind bars, one of which was suspended, for racially abusing two black police officers.
A video of Momberg repeatedly calling the officers the k-word went viral.
The former estate agent is asking the court for leave to appeal her prison sentence.
During his Tuesday night show, Noah explained to his audience what the k-word means and how some South Africans argued its use is protected under free speech.
