#SNLPremiere: Michael Che Drops N-Word & Twitter Loses Its Mind

NEW YORK -- No, you weren't hearing things. Yes, Michael Che dropped the N-word on live TV during the SNL Premiere. And now, folks on Twitter are losing their damn minds.

It happened during the "Weekend Update"segment. Take a listen. But warning, some may find the language offensive:

Of course, the first thing we did after hearing the N-bomb was head to Twitter...

No word from NBC just yet.

But we're starting to wonder -- was it really a "slip up?" Or is SNL taking things to a whole new level because in the very next sketch, they dropped the p-word.
