Comedian Michael Che is coming under fire after posting a series of jokes about Simone Biles to his Instagram stories.

After getting dragged for the posts, Che claimed his Instagram account was hacked on Thursday (July 29), one day after Biles announced she would be exiting the all around finals in Tokyo. 

According to reports, it all started on Che’s Instagram stories where he reposted and rated a series of jokes submitted by his followers. One of the jokes even made a mockery of Biles’ disclosure of being a victim of former USA Gymnastic doctor Larry Nassar. Another post was a racist joke about Biles’ pulling out of Olympic events which Che allegedly rated an 8/10. 

Screenshots of the jokes were shared on BallerAlert’s Twitter account.

“Maaannnn, i got hacked today,” Che wrote in a separate post after the jokes were removed. “Can’t believe they got me,’” the 38-year-old wrote using the same white text and black background as the previous post he said were hacked.

“Y’all know i only do jokes about whites and cops. S’all good now i changed my password and everything.” 

Twitter stuck up for Simone Biles, calling out the posts on Che’s social media account.
