Millennial Michael Che just got a lesson in writing about Gen Z, thanks to social media critics who accused his “Gen Z Hospital” sketch of placing African American Vernacular English (AAVE) in the mouths of “Saturday Night Live” cast members and calling it comedy.

Che, 37, initially thought the sketch had simply bombed — but got another impression after reading social media.

I’m so tired of nonblack people throwing random AAVE terms in their sentences and calling that horse s— ‘Gen Z language,’” one Twitter user wrote Saturday night.

In the sketch, host Elon Musk played a doctor who’s caring for the “bestie” of five stereotypical Gen Z folks portrayed by Bowen Yang, Kate McKinnon, Heidi Gardner, Mikey Day and Ego Nwodim.

But some social media users noted the racial connotations of such language.

‘SNL’ and his new sketch show suggest otherwise.

“I’ve been reading about how my ‘gen z’ sketch was misappropriating AAVE and I was stunned cause what the f— is ‘AAVE’.

Turns out it’s an acronym for ‘African American vernacular english.’ You know, AAVE.

Review: Elon Musk hosting ‘SNL’ was a gimmicky ratings grab — but not a disaster.
