That’s what the founder of Tesla and SpaceX said in the program “Saturday Night Live” (SNL). He also referred to the cryptocurrency dogecoin again.
Tesla founder Elon Musk, one of the richest men in the world, revealed he has Asperger’s syndrome on Saturday night’s US prime-time show “Saturday Night Live” (SNL).
Musk, a rare kind of guest host on SNL, said in his opening monologue that he was the show’s first host with this syndrome “or at least the first to admit it.” It is an autism spectrum disorder that causes problems in the development of social skills and a range of repetitive behaviors and interests.
In the program, the businessman joked about himself for his monotonous voice, his penchant for causing a stir on social networks, his infamous moment when he took part in a podcast while smoking marijuana, and even because of his son’s name, X Æ A-12 and pronounced “cat banging on a keyboard”.
“Look, I know I say or post weird things sometimes, but it’s just how my brain works. To anyone who has been offended, I just want to say: I reinvented electric cars and I send people to Mars with a rocket, did you think I was going to be a normal and relaxed man? “, He added.
Musk’s appearance on the show had raised expectations that he would be a public figure, as well as for his defense of cryptocurrencies and especially the controversial dogecoin, which he stated will be “the future of currencies” that its value will be. disappear “to the moon”, but that’s a “scam” nonetheless.
With this, Musk changed the price of the currency for the second time this week, dropping to 49 cents during the show’s airing, while it hit 74 cents shortly before, according to CoinDesk.
In addition, on the occasion of Mother’s Day in the US, which will be celebrated this Sunday, the presenter also invited his mother, former model Maye Musk, who said of her gift, “I hope it’s not dogecoin,” when he responded sarcastically, “Yes, it is.”
