‘Saturday Night Live’ Star Under Fire After Making Anti-Semitic Joke

‘Saturday Night Live’ star Michael Che is now under fire after making a bizarre and obviously anti-semitic joke on air.

Numerous commentators were immediately outraged at Che’s comments, including the American Jewish Committee which called for an immediate apology from the comedian.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Michael Che is the co-anchor on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update segment. Alongside Colin Jost, he hosts a fictional news program based on current events with an apparently comedic slant.

This weekend, Che got into some hot water after one of his “reports” appeared to rely on an anti-Semitic smear.

“Israel is reporting that they vaccinated half of their population, and I’m going to guess it’s the Jewish half,” Che said with a grin.

So now bad jokes are going to get comedians cancelled??? Everyone needs to take a chill pill but the left created this insanity and it won’t stop until the lefties get eaten by it too, so perhaps this is progress.

Like most forms of entertainment, SNL has sucked ever since they became political. They can’t make a joke without Trump.

I do not turn TV at all, with exception of 2 hrs Monday to Friday on FOX NEWS. Have not seen any Hollywierd goons for years TV or otherwise, and I am great with it.

Not that anyone with half a brain still watches the childish, immature babbling humor of SNL…. but that the left can always bash Jews…. and Jews will still love the left…..
That’s what’s REALLY FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so old I used to watch Second City TV, which morphed into SNL and both were exceedingly funny. Today its nothing but hate, wrapped in garbage, covered with anti-Semitism and rolled in far left cheerleading chants with a tip of the hat to socialism.

SCTV was brilliant comedy. Some fantastic comedians came out of it. SNL today, not so much. They’re not that funny anymore.

Actually where I lived SNL came on before Second City which was a whole lot funnier than SNL ever was even in it’s glory days with Belushi, Chevy, Dan Ackroyd, and the rest of the original cast. It turned out that Second City coming on later was a good thing because when SNL started slipping I could spend that extra hour and a half drinking at the bar before coming home to watch SCTV.

So why the surprise? The liberals are and always have been anti sematic and always will be. It is too bad that so many Jewish people in the U.S.A. don’t recognize this, or is it because there is a fraction in the Jewish faith that is battling internally another branch of the faith?

Is that really suppose to be funny!!!
Who writes this stuff? Someone who does have any common sense or decency. Any apology is definitely necessary but likely won’t come. Sad yet again. No morals

Why is anybody surprised about this? SNL has been part of the leftists propaganda machine from the beginning.

A life long Democrat from 1962 until 1993, when I came to the realization that the growing Leftist domination of the Democratic Party had turned it into everything they claimed to be against. They are now the Elitist, rich, non-inclusive, power crazed, uncaring of the average man& women, self-edifying people they claim the other Party is! Biden’s actions since becoming President simply validates that realization.
