So, how does the internet feel about Che's commentary?
So last night’s Saturday Night Live was a heavy hitter. And not because of Cameron Diaz, who was a perfectly fine host, but because Michael Che used the Weekend Update segment to address... I can hear you groaning already... the Bill Cosby thing.
After all the attention directed at Cosby recently, SNL went there.
While Che, much like many others, isn’t really sure where he stands on the scandal (more about that here) his speech was pretty much the most honest piece of media to hit the internet over the past week. Here’s what Che had to say, in a nutshell:
“TV Land pulled all re-runs of 'The Cosby Show. I don't know how to feel about that because I don't know Bill Cosby, but Cliff Huxtable practically raised me. I love that dude!”
It’s a sentiment shared by many, who grew up with The Cosby Show, and it has attracted many contrasting opinion on the scandal. So here’s Che’s closing sentiment, which summarises the awfulness of the whole thing pretty succinctly.
Michael Che's commentary was honest to the point of being uncomfortable.
"So while I may never forgive Bill Cosby, hopefully someday I can forgive Dr. Huxtable," he said, adding, "I mean, I know it's not the same thing but, I forgave Kramer."
The sly comment referenced Michael Richards, who played Kramer in the hit TV sitcom "Seinfeld," and landed in hot water in 2006 after spewing several racial slurs onstage at The Laugh Factory.
