Michael Che Is Not Backing Away From Racism Comment
Saturday Night Live star Michael Che is not backing away from comments he made about Boston, when he called it the “most racist city” he has ever visited.
During a stand-up appearance at Boston University this week, Che reportedly told students about all of the angry comments he received on social media after making the remark on SNL.
He responded to one woman by urging her to “talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you.” He says the woman responded by answering, “Touche.”
Che, who often jokes about President Donald Trump on SNL, told the audience he never apologizes for language or controversial statements because he’s “just trying to be more presidential.”
Che shared a headline about himself on Instagram, saying “cmon, thats pretty funny! listen boston, my grandma is racist too, but i still love her. & i still love you.”
