Michael Che doubled down this Saturday after facing criticism for his comments about Caitlyn Jenner last week.

The Saturday Night Live comedian received backlash once again last night for jokes he made on Nov. 2 that viewers have called sexist and ageist. On “Weekend Update,” Che mentioned a recent headline involving a woman in China who gave birth at 67 years old.

“The birth set a record for most friction,” he said, to a mixture of groans and laughs. He then tried out some jokes that “NBC standards said … were all too dirty.”
