‘SNL’ Cast Members Voice Displeasure
Over Elon Musk Hosting Announcement .
On Saturday, NBC announced that Elon Musk would be
hosting the May 8 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’ .
He will be the first nonactor or nonathlete
to host the sketch comedy show since 2015,
when Donald Trump took the helm. .
The 49-year-old Tesla CEO took to Twitter to confirm
the news, tweeting “let’s find out just how live [SNL]
really is” alongside a grinning devil emoji. .
A number of ‘SNL’ cast members took to social media shortly
after the announcement to voice their displeasure. .
Bowen Yang questioned Musk’s bizzare tweet
in an Instagram Story with the comment:
“what the f---ck does this even mean.” .
Aidy Bryant also aimed a thinly veiled jab at Musk
by reposting a tweet from Senator Bernie Sanders, who
previosuly criticized Musk for his “greed and inequality.”.
The 50 wealthiest people in America today
own more wealth than the bottom half of
our people. Let me repeat that, because
it is almost too absurd to believe: the 50
wealthiest people in this country own more
wealth than some 165 MILLION Americans.
That is a moral obscenity. , Bernie Sanders, via Twitter.
Andrew Dismukes also joined the online jibing,
saying on Instagram: “[the] only CEO I wanna
do sketch with is [SNL alum] Cher-E Oteri.”
