On May 8, the founder of Tesla Elon Musk and pop star Miley Cyrus will take over SNL as host and musical guest. Many Hollywood celebrities, 'blue checkmarks,' and even SNL cast members, were not happy with the choice and took to Twitter to express their displeasure
SNL cast members quoted Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on social media and expressed their view that rich and successful people are not welcome in the United States anymore.
Musk, who attended Queens University at a time, has built a science and innovation business empire from SpaceX, to the Boring Company and his most famous venture Tesla. Musk is also famous for his antics including selling the "Not a flame thrower" through the Boring Company.
Canadian businessman Kevin O'Leary views Musk and others differently and said, "If you work hard, you could be stinking rich one day."
Musk has also created a name for himself in pop culture, making headlines for smoking weed on the Joe Rogan Experience, sending Tesla stock soaring or plummeting with one tweet and for naming his child X Æ A-XII. Elon Musk eluded to what he might have planned for the show in a tweet.
SNL cast members were also outraged at this with Bowen Yang commenting, "What the f – k does this even mean."
