Michael Che under fire for Simone Biles jokes, claims he was hacked
Che deleted his Instagram page from all posts except one birthday Instagram story following his alleged hacking.
Comedian and Saturday Night Live writer Michael Che deleted his Instagram page from all posts except an Instagram story celebrating his birthday after claiming he was hacked.
The claims came after Che posted in his stories that he was trying to joke superstar gymnast Simone Biles. Then he would post jokes shared by others and rate them on a scale of one to 10.
His first story was, "Man, I want to make fun of Simone Biles."
Che continued, “I have about 3 minutes of Simone Biles jokes on my head. I'm going down to the basement tonight to say it into a microphone. As the idiotic children say, I choose violence. "

Jokes about the sexual abuse of Biles by former US gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar were rated nine out of ten by Che. A racist joke about the Olympic athlete was rated eight out of ten.
Celebrity gossip site Baller Alert collected screenshots of the tasteless posts before they were deleted.
Che then wrote another Instastory. “Man, I was hacked today. I can't believe they caught me, ”it said. “You know I only joke about whites and cops. All good, now I've changed my password and everything. "
Later he also deleted this post.
The comedian is trending on Twitter right now, with several people pointing out that the fonts used in the original Instagram story posts and Che's "It wasn't me" statement were the same.
TV producer and activist Leslie Mac wrote, “Black Women BEEN told you about Michael Che ... but once again you ignored us. But COMEDY right !? Damn hack. "
"Michael Che comes for people he thinks he can get away with," said writer Delia Harrington. “Trans women, black women, survivors of sexual assault. Judging by his flimsy 'I got hacked' defense, he doesn't seem to have a clue how popular Simone Biles is or how stupid it is to share a Larry Nasser joke. "
Another Twitter user shared what appears to be a sad reality and wrote, “I will be shocked if something happens to Michael Che. There doesn't seem to be any consequences for hurting black women. "
