In his appearance on Saturday Night Live which saw the significant drop of Dogecoin along with numerous funny sketches, Elon Musk revealed some personal news during the show.
Musk’s hosting of SNL went well with television audiences which included his comedic monologue, but when the Tesla CEO revealed that he had Asperger’s Syndrome, fans were impressed with how open he was about the condition.
“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host Saturday Night Live, or at least the first to admit it,” said Musk.

Although, that statement wasn’t completely true as fans of the show stated that Dan Aykroyd was the first host with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Aykroyd was on the SNL cast between 1975 to 1979, before returning as a host in 2003. 10 years later, he declared that he had Asperger’s Syndrome.
Still, it was a comment and an appearance that saw Musk receive plenty of plaudits.
