Michael Che drops the n-word on ‘Saturday Night Live’

On the ‘Weekend Update’ portion of this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, Micheal Che shocked everyone watching when he let the N-word slip.

The segment was supposed to be covering the protests by Colin Kaepernick.

“I don’t understand this. If the national anthem was so important, how did they even know someone was kneeling? That’s how boring the National Anthem is. Halfway through, you’re looking around the stadium like, ‘I wonder what the backup quarterback for the 49ers is up to?’” Che said during the episode.

“It’s mostly white guys that are upset,” Michael said. “And I can understand why white guys love the National Anthem so much – because this country’s always been great for white guys. You absolutely should defend the National Anthem. If I was white, I’d always defend the National Anthem.”

He then continued, “I expect white guys to defend the National Anthem like I expected Phylicia Rashad to defend Bill Cosby. I’m sure when people were protesting the Cosby Show, Clair Huxtable was like, ‘I don’t know what he did to y’all, but n***a made me rich!’”
