Tesla CEO and Space-X founder Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend.

In his opening monologue, Musk said that he has Asperger's, which on the autism spectrum. It is thought to be the first time that Musk has said publicly that he has the syndrome.

"I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL," said Musk.

"Or at least the first to admit it. So I won’t make a lot of eye contact with the cast tonight. But don’t worry, I’m pretty good at running ‘human’ in emulation mode."

It was later pointed out by many on Twitter that Dan Aykroyd, who hosted the show in 2003, has said that he was diagnosed with Asperger's in the 1908s.

In the monologue, the billionaire spoke about smoking cannabis on Joe Rogan's podcast in 2018 and his son's unusual name.


"I'd first like to share with you my vision for the future," he said.

"I believe in a renewable energy future. I believe that humanity must become a multi-planetary, space-faring civilisation. Those seem like exciting goals, don't they? If I just posted that on Twitter, I'd be fine."

Musk continued: "I know I sometime says or post strange things but that's just how my brain works. To anyone I've offended, I just want to say I reinvented electric cars and I'm sending people to Mars on a rocketship. Did you think I was also going to be a chill, normal dude?"
