On "Weekend Update," Che alluded to complaints, including from human rights groups, that Israel is not vaccinating Palestinians under its territories. “Israel is reporting that they’ve vaccinate half their population," Che began his joke. "And I’m going to guess it’s the Jewish half!" Che's joke sparked a debate over whether it was anti-Semitic or anti-apartheid. Now the ADL has stepped in, calling out Che for "playing into an anti-Semitic trope" and for Lorne Michaels to “take action to repair the damage that’s been done and ensure that this does not happen again.” SNL has yet to respond.
