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.

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.

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