AceShowbiz - Michael Che is fuming after losing someone dear to his heart because of the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, April 6, the "Saturday Night Live" cast member shared with his fans and followers that his grandmother has passed away the night before, and couldn't help but rant over conspiracy theories surrounding the virus.
In an Instagram post captioned "i swear, im fine," the 36-year-old stand-up comedian began his open letter by admitting that he is "obviously very hurt and angry" that his grandmother "had to go through all that pain alone." Still, he added, "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," he continued. "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 then admitted he "shouldn't curse" but reasoned he was just "grieving."
Che went on to share his thought on a conspiracy theory about what actually started the global pandemic. "I actually believe this is 5G poisoning, and not because I've done any research on this, or even understand what 5G really is," he stated. "I just refuse to believe I lost my sweet, beautiful grandma because some n***a ate a bat one time. I'm sorry. Even if that IS in fact how this all started. I'm just not willing to accept that right now. F**k that. I need a better story."
The former "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" correspondent further took aim at "fast food companies offering to deliver food during the pandemic." He claimed that the food they sold might be the ones that were "killing us in the first place." He ranted, "OK maybe you don't sell us bat but then maybe you do! We don't know where the f**k they're getting all this dollar meat from. It ain't the butcher!"
Che then brought the light on another theory involving African-American people. "Why is it that black people are some of the most athletic people on the planet yet we lead the world in diabetes and heart disease? How is that possible? C-o-n-s-p-i-r-a-c-y that's how," he stated.
In his frustration, Che additionally urged "everybody to watch what you're eating at this time." He elaborated, "I mean, everybody make sure you're getting your vitamins, and water and probiotics, and dark leafy greens, and all that other good stuff I never thought twice about until the last couple weeks, so you can boost your immune system, and help you fight this awful virus in the unfortunate event you get it."
