Michael Che’s tenure at Global’s “Saturday Night Live” is still up in the air, it seems.
On Sunday, the comedian and co-head writer shared a post on Instagram shutting down a headline claiming that he had said he is leaving “Weekend Update”.
The headline referenced an article from the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which reported that during a standup set at a local hair salon on Friday, Che had indicated that he would be leaving the show this year.
“This is my last year,” he reportedly said. “You know my tie is a clip-on, right? What man wears a clip-on tie to work for eight years — that’s embarrassing.”
An “SNL” source tells ET Canada that nothing at the show has been officially discussed regarding Che’s potential exit.
Che is one of the longest-serving “Weekend Update” hosts, recently surpassing Seth Meyers for number of appearances, and currently sitting only behind co-host Colin Jost.
