Straight Comedy: Fashion Designer Blasts Michael Che For Being ‘Arrogant’ — He Releases Their Texts
You gon’ learn today!
Every week “Saturday Night Live” fans watch comedian Michael Che deliver the “Weekend Update” alongside Colin Jost. He may be a celebrity, but that didn’t stop him from trying to meet ladies via an exclusive online dating app called Raya for the famous types. There he began chatting with “Married To The Mob” clothing designer and founder Leah McSweeney and like many conversations between strangers, their relationship didn’t go anywhere.
However, when McSweeney talked about Che on her “Improper Etiquette” podcast earlier this week, she described him in the worst way. She made it seem as if he was highly inappropriate and impolite while they spoke and fans were more than willing to listen to all of her spilled tea. She went after him hard, calling him a woman-hating “D-list” celebrity who wasn’t worth her time. Boom.
“Michael Che is so arrogant and so rude and disrespectful that I cannot even believe that someone… you’re like a D-list celebrity to me, whatever,” McSweeney said. “That’s why I don’t even care that I’m saying his name. I’m not like blowing up Jay Z’s spot.
“Why are you on a dating app if you hate women?” she continued. “Literally, you’ve never met me and you’re texting me like I’m a stupid b**** … texting me and being mad rude. He kept just texting me, going, ‘I’m fat. Does that turn you on?’ And I’m like, ‘You’re fat? I think I’ve seen you and you’re not fat, OK?’ ”
Now you know Michael Che wasn’t about to go out like that. Not only did he tell his side of the story, he brought receipts in the form of text messages — and he gave copies to Page Six.
The beginning of their exchange in September 2016 seemed simple enough and reads drastically different from how McSweeney described it. They did talk about food and Che did joke that he was fat because he enjoyed to eat so much.
Then a couple of months later in December McSweeney hit up Che again, but her messages were so strange that he opted not to respond. This didn’t sit well with her and she told him that he hated her because she was white.
When Che finally does jump back in, he’s just as confused as the rest of us. She asked him if he wanted to meet up and he respectfully tells her no because he found her messages to be strange and he didn’t want to “know whats the real life equivalent of that.”
It seems as if she’s just a little salty she got rejected after acting like a weirdo, and if she wanted to get above this she should have taken the ‘L.’ Nope. Nope, she didn’t. She told Jezebel that Che proved how terrible of a person he is because he released their texts.
“To me, him putting every single text message that went on between us, sending that to Page Six, is the corniest move I’ve ever seen anybody do in my life,” she said. “And it just reaffirms that fact that he’s a terrible person, obviously.”
Let’s not forget who started this. Still, this seems as if this was her last resort way to get his attention. She’s like a schoolgirl who just runs up to a random little boy and yells Tag! You’re it! before running off, except he’s not playing with her. In the aftermath, the poor thing was dragged on Twitter over the whole incident, but it just goes to show that if you’re going to trash someone, make sure they don’t have any evidence that makes you look like a crazy liar.
