Michael Che is the black Santa Claus to the tenants in one of New York City's housing projects. Che's paying their rent for a month, and wondering why the government isn't doing more to help.
The "Saturday Night Live" star is gonna cover rent payments for all 160 apartments in the NYC public housing project where his late grandmother lived.
The comedian says it's that the residents of NYC public housing that are still expected to pay rent when so many have lost their incomes to Covid-19 and that he's being generous in the spirit of his late grandma who just died due to complications from COVID-19.
It's only a drop in the bucket, and Che's calling on NY to develop a better plan for debt forgiveness for anyone living in public housing and he's calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and even Diddy to fix what he sees as a major issue in the city.
