Welp, here it is: Elon Musk has scorched the earth with the most cursed SNL set you’ve ever bloody seen.
In his controversial set, he discusses OJ Simpson, Dogecoin, and his son’s name.
In the opening of his monologue, he says he’s the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL, which I can debunk for ya right now because Dan Aykroyd, a former cast member and comedian, also has Asperger syndrome and returned to host the show in 2003.
Elon Musk went on to discuss the weird-ass name of his son, whom he shares with singer Grimes, saying it’s “pronounced like a cat running across a keyboard.”
He then brought up the September 2018 incident when he was seen smoking marijuana while appearing on the podcast hosted by Joe Rogan, saying: “People are reduced to the dumbest thing they ever did.”
And here’s where it gets even weirder as he compares his rep to that of accused killer O.J. Simpson. Musk joked that it was “like I go from podcast to podcast lighting up joints. It’s like reducing O.J. Simpson to murder.” He noted that Simpson hosted SNL twice and “killed it.”
At one point, he even brought his mother Maye Musk on stage for Mother’s Day (???) and things got even stranger from there.
“Do you remember when I was 12 I created my own video game?” he asked.
“I remember they paid you $500. You were too young to open a bank account so I had to open one for you,” she said. Beaming, she added, “You turned that video game about space into reality.”
Elon Musk, a known lover of fantasy, then said: “Our reality might be a video game and we’re all just computer simulations being played by a teenager on another planet.”
