SNL's Michael Che Reveals His Grandmother Died from Coronavirus, Shares His Frustrations

Michael Che is mourning the death of his grandmother, who passed away from coronavirus.

The 36-year-old SNL star, who is one of the Weekend Update co-anchors, opened up in an Instagram post on Monday (April 6) and he vented his frustrations with the virus.

“Hi. I’m Michael Che, from TV. Last night my grandmother passed away from the coronavirus,” he began in the post. “I’m doing OK, considering. I’m obviously very hurt and angry that she had to go through all that pain alone.”

“But I’m also happy that she’s not in pain anymore. And I also feel guilty for feeling happy. Basically the whole gamut of complex feelings everybody else has losing someone very close and special. I’m not unique. But it’s still scary. I don’t know if I’ll lose someone else to this virus. I don’t know if I’ll be lost to this virus. Who f–king knows?” he continued. “I’m just frustrated because there’s so much we still don’t know about it, and I don’t think we are getting the whole truth.”

Michael also discussed his beliefs on the origins of the virus.

“I actually believe this is 5G poisoning,” Michael wrote, echoing something that Keri Hilson said a few weeks ago. “And not because I’ve done any research on this, or even understand what 5G really is. I just refuse to believe I lost my sweet, beautiful grandma, because some n—a ate a bat one time. I’m sorry.”

Michael talked about the importance of eating healthy foods and he also attacked the media for how they are covering the news.

“Maybe tell people what they should be eating and what foods to avoid … instead of just posting death tolls as your lead story every g—-mn day!” he said.
