Elon Musk revealed on the US comedy show Saturday Night that he is suffering from Asperger’s syndrome.
The tech Entrepreneur said that he must be the first individual suffering Asperger running the popular show, and the audience lauded his comments with cheers.
People who are suffering from Asperger’s syndrome are conceived around the environment differently than others. The 49-year-old entrepreneur never discussed his condition anywhere else before.
Many celebrities, including Chris Rock, Will Farell, Adele, and Ringo Starr, appeared on the famous comedy Show SNL. The show has been airing since 1970. Musk filled the coveted host role quite perfectly in the SNL.
Humorously he said that his speaking pattern consists of several variations and intonations, and usually, it is a component of generating comedy. He addressed in the opening monologue that he made history as he must be the first host of SNL having the condition of Asperger’s.
The audience burst out laughing after his comments. However, social media users doubt his claims. They said that Dan Aykroyd, a comedian, appeared on SNL, and he also had Asperger’s and Tourette’s syndrome. The comedian openly discussed his condition on the show and told the audience about his journey.
Musk made fun of his Tweets
Elon Musk has over 53 million Twitter followers, yet he was sarcastic about his Twitter usage. The tech personality faced legal warning several times earlier due to his Tweets and got criticized. According to him, his posts sometimes consist of strange opinions. He says that is how his brain functions.
Musk jokingly said that he has reinvented cars which run by electricity, and sent humans to Mars with a SpaceX rocket. So there is no chance that he has ever fallen into the category of a normal human.

Elon Musk is currently trending for his suggestions on Dogecoin
The multi-billionaire talked about how he and his partner Grimes have named their son X Æ A-12. Their first baby together was born last year. He said that the name sounded like the cat was running through the keyboard.
The CEO also spoke on Dogecoin, which is a cryptocurrency.
A couple of software experts introduced Dogecoin in 2013. The cryptocurrency’s value hiked by fifty percent after Elon Musk called it a cryptocurrency for all people.

Elon Musk backs cryptocurrency Dogecoin
According to Elon Musk, Dogecoin is unstoppable and will be the most common cryptocurrency around the world. He later accepted that the recent hustle triggered the decrease in the value of dogecoin.
The cryptocurrency world is very volatile as those currencies do not consist of any value in terms of land or gold. Also, it fails to generate income, and the speed of difference in value (whether high or low) is very high. It makes it hard to foresee the value of cryptocurrency. Therefore global economic influencers like Elon Musk’s comments could easily make those cryptocurrencies’ prices quite susceptible.
NBC said that the SNL show, which had Elon Musk, was aired live in over 100 countries through YouTube.
