The comedian revealed in an Instagram post on social media his grandmother died after contracting COVID-19.

“Hi. I’m Michael Che, from TV. Last night my grandmother passed away from the coronavirus,” he wrote. “I’m doing ok, considering. I’m obviously very hurt and angry that she had to go through all that pain alone. But I’m also happy that she’s not in pain anymore. And I also feel guilty for feeling happy. Basically the whole gamut of complex feelings everybody else has losing someone very close and special. I’m not unique. But it’s still scary.”

Michael Che wrote about his frustration with the outbreak.

“I don’t know if I’ll lose someone else to this virus. I don’t even know if I’ll be lost to this virus. Who f—— know? I shouldn’t curse,” he wrote. “I’m just frustrated, cause there’s so much we still don’t know about it.”

“I need a better story,” he continued. “I’m just not willing to accept that right now. F— THAT. I need a better story. I know, I shouldn’t curse, but I’m grieving.”

Michael Che gave advice and advocated the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to help limit the chances of getting the virus.

“Watch what you’re eating at this time,” he wrote. “Make sure you’re getting your vitamins, and water, and probiotics, and dark leafy grans, and all that other good stuff I never thought twice about until the last couple weeks so you can boost your immune system, and help you fight this awful virus in the unfortunate event you get it.”

Che continued,  “To anybody thats lost someone to this virus like I have, I don’t have to tell you how much it hurts. But just know what we will make it through this.”

“Whatever,” he added. “I’m just mad.”
