Trevor Noah bagged his first Emmy over the weekend and fellow South Africans took to social media to congratulate him on his success — the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) even tweeted about his win too.
The party wrote: "EFF congratulates @Trevornoah for winning his first Emmy for The Daily Show: continue to make us proud."
However, the 'red berets' were not thanked in kindness when Trevor poked fun at them in his reply.
The comedian wrote: "Thank you comrades. Where would my comedy career be without you!"

Trevor has a history of having a go at EFF party leader Julius Malema. However, Julius remains unimpressed.
Speaking to Anele Mdoda last year, Julius mocked Trevor's unsuccessful attempts at imperosating him.
"I realise I'm a difficult person to impersonate. Even Trevor is not succeeding. He is not winning," said Julius.
