Michael Che says, ‘I’m just mad,’ after his grandmother passed away due to coronavirus.
Saturday Night Live star Michael Che is mourning the loss of his grandmother after she lost her battle against coronavirus.
The 36-year old TV personality took to Instagram on Monday to reveal the tragic news of his grandmother’s death following COVID-19 complications.
Hi. I’m Michael Che, from TV. Last night my grandmother passed away from the coronavirus. I’m doing ok, considering. I’m obviously very hurt and angry that she had to go through all that pain alone.
Che 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.”
Michael Che then expressed his frustrations towards this fatal viral illness. “I don’t know if I’ll lose someone else to this virus. I don’t even know if I’ll be lost to this virus. Who f—— know? I shouldn’t curse. I’m just frustrated, cause there’s so much we still don’t know about it. I need a better story. I’m just not willing to accept that right now. F— THAT. I need a better story. I know, I shouldn’t curse, but I’m grieving.”
