Elon Musk Reveals He Has Asperger's During 'Saturday Night Live' Monologue (Video)

Elon Musk has made a surprising reveal.

During his opening monologue on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (May 8), the 49-year-old Tesla and SpaceX CEO revealed that he has Asperger’s.

Here’s what he said…

“It’s an honor to be hosting Saturday Night Live, I mean that,” Elon said. “Sometimes after I say something, I have to say I mean that so people really know I mean it. That’s because I’ve always had a lot of intonational variation when I speak, which I’ve been told makes for great comedy.”

“I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host SNL. Or at least the first to admit it,” Elon said with a laugh.

Later in the monologue, Elon joked about his and Grimes‘ son X Æ A-XII, saying it’s pronounced like a “cat running across the keyboard.”

He also made a reference to Dogecoin!
