Michael Che is not backing down from his claims that Boston earns the title of “most racist city” he’s ever visited.
During a stand-up appearance at Boston University this week, the 33-year-old co-anchor of Saturday Night Live‘s “Weekend Update” reportedly told students about all of the angry comments he received on social media after making the remark on SNL before the 2017 Super Bowl. (via The Boston Globe)
He told one woman, “Talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you,” to which the woman responded, “Touche.”
Michael also told the crowd he never apologizes for his controversial statements, explaining, “I’m just trying to be more presidential.”
“😂 cmon, thats pretty funny!” he shared on Instagram. “Listen boston, my grandma is racist too, but i still love her. & i still love you.”
“Lol those boston university kids tattled on me to the media? 🙄,” he added. “Yea, i said it. boston is racist. big f–kin deal.”

Saturday Night Live‘s popular Weekend Update segment is headed to primetime, at least for the summer!
The late night segment, hosted by SNL writers Colin Jost and Michael Che, is set to air four primetime specials later this year.
“SNL is having its best season in a quarter of a century — how many shows can say that?! — so we didn’t want them to take the summer off. We’re thrilled to have Colin Jost and Michael Che continuing their unique brand of news with fresh ‘Weekend Update’ shows in primetime this August,” NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement.
The primetime specials are set to air starting beginning August 10th.
Jay-Z is opening up why he decided to take on Kalief Browder‘s story in his latest passion project!
The 46-year-old rapper was joined by executive producer Harvey Weinstein, Gayle King, New Yorker writer and legal scholar Jeffrey Toobin, comedian Michael Che, and NYT‘ reporter Michael Schwirtz at MTV Studios on Wednesday (March 9) for TIME AND PUNISHMENT: A Town Hall Discussion to talk about his documentary event series on Kalief Browder, who was held in solitary confinement for two years after allegedly stealing a backpack, a crime he says he did not commit.
“His death is here to teach us to save a generation of kids. I say this about the movie. It’s hard to watch, but important to see,” Jay-Z said at the panel (via RollingStone). “There’s got to be an awakening across the country. It doesn’t have to be looking at the White House or senators. I think it’s about looking at what’s happening in your county, your town, your city, right now. If Americans can think small, they can do much bigger things.”
“We put people in office; we make the laws,” Jay-Z added. “These government officials? They work for us. They speak to us like we work for them, but we are the power. Three million people watched this the first week; we need it to be 20. We need everyone to be talking about this. That’s how this stops.”
“Support @hilarityforcharity if you can. This is what your donations support. Thank you for doing this work @laurenmillerrogen #HilarityForCharity,” Lavernetweeted.
