Emmys host Michael Che says the only white people who thank Jesus at award shows are Republicans, ‘ex-crackheads’

The 70th Annual Emmy Awards kicked off with a slew of political jokes and jabs as expected. But one remark from co-host Michael Che left many viewers upset.

During Che’s opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, Che explained that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“My mother is not watching,” Che said. “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”

 He continued, “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers who took to Twitter to complain.
