Liberal Saturday Night Live Viewers Triggered After Elon Musk Announced As May 8 Host
You haven’t quite made yourself into the zeitgeist of all things unfunny unless you’ve hosted Saturday Night Live at some point over the last 20 years.
And now that’ll be the latest adventure for Elon Musk, who, instead of spending his Saturday night thinking really deeply about how he plans on turning long-term profits at both SpaceX and Tesla, he’ll instead be joining Miley Cyrus on Saturday Night Live.
NBC announced the news over the weekend, according to NPR.

NBC made the announcement “just hours” after the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule docked with the International Space Station.
The show isn’t well known for having businesspeople host, but Musk’s crossover into the realm of celebrity appears to have afforded him the opportunity. Musk has also made guest appearances on CBS shows Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory, as well as voicing a part on South Park, The Simpsons and Rick and Morty.
For better or for worse, it’s going to get eyeballs on the show, which is NBC’s endgame. The news triggered the lot of super-liberal SNL viewers, who lashed out at the program on Twitter, which became a group “cancel” effort/therapy session for snowflakes:
Having Elon Musk host SNL seriously feels like the show’s biggest misstep since having Trump host

idk how much communication you have with lorne or the higher ups, but someone needs to tell them that absolutely no one wants this. i can not think of a single person who wants this.
and i don’t mean miley

I’d rather have a root canal with no anesthesia than watch Elon Musk pretend to be human.

Elon can fuck himself. Miley deserves better. The writing’s been shit this year but this takes the cake. Deleting SNL from my DVR ASAP.

Are you SHITTING ME? Elon Musk, seriously? Not funny. Bloated billionaire babyman. (Another one, that is.) Stop this!

Or which skit will feature Elon telling his wife she’s way too emotional and should stop being sad about their child that died.
