Michael Che on Boston: "It's The Most Racist City I've Ever Visited"
Comedian Michael Che has had his fair share of controversial comments since joining NBC’s Saturday Night Live. His latest gaffe has come as he made comments to one of the nation’s original colonies, Boston, when he called it the “most racist city” he’s ever visited.
According to The Boston Globe, the Weekend Update co-anchor told a packed crowd at Boston University about how he received angry messages on social media after he made the comment on SNL the night before this year’s Super Bowl.
“Talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you,” he told one woman who wanted to know why he could say such a thing. “Touché,” she responded.
Che, 33, often makes light of race and specifically President Donald Trump on SNL. He told the audience that he never will apologize for language or controversial statements because he’s “just trying to be more presidential.”
