Saturday Night Live was the topic of conversation over the weekend for more reasons than one.

Showing his solidarity yet again for Colin Kapernick, JAY-Z took the SNL stage wearing a jersey sporting the infamous player’s name and number.

But it was Michael Che who found himself in the center of controversy after referring to Donald Trump as a “cheap craker’ and a ‘bitch’ during the always hilarious Weekend Update sketch. Watch below.

While hilarious and dare we say it, true, backlash started surfacing online immediately.

Hey , last night's racist rant by Michael Che was way over the line, repulsive, unfunny. #SNL totally tiresome. After 40 yrs I'm done.

Michael Che is a racist. How is it okay to call a white person a cracka? That is racist you hypocrite

He calls Trump a "cheap cracker." On national TV.

Would a comedian still have a job if he called Obama a "nigger?"

TELL US: What do you think? Did the funnyman go too far?
