"Saturday Night Live" star Michael Che doubled down on comments he made about the city of Boston, which he called the "most racist city" he's ever visited.

"Talk to your closest black friend and ask them to explain it to you," Che defended during a Thursday appearance at Boston University, after a member of the audience asked him about controversial comments he made about the city on "SNL" the night before the Super Bowl.

Invoking a Donald Trump joke, Che -- co-anchor of the "Weekend Update" segment on "SNL" -- told the audience at the university that he won't apologize for language or controversial statements because he's "just trying to be more presidential."

Che addressed the controversy on Instagram Saturday, reposting an article from the city's Metro paper. "lol those boston university kids tattled on me to the media? yea, i said it," he captioned the photo, "boston is racist. big f-ckin deal. also, ill be at the wilbur theater in june. cowabunga, bitches."

The above Instagram photo was followed by another, showing an article from The Boston Globe.

"cmon, thats pretty funny! listen boston, my grandma is racist too, but i still love her," he captioned that one, "& i still love you. anyway, ill be at the @nyccomedycellar all night. cowaBUNGA!"

When discussing the Super Bowl matchup between the Falcons and Patriots on "SNL" in February, Che said, "I just want to relax, turn my brain off, and watch the blackest city in America beat the most racist city I've ever been to."
