Businessman Elon Musk, head of tech companies Tesla and SpaceX, told on the American entertainment program Saturday Night Live that he has Asperger’s syndrome. In his opening monologue, Musk boasted of being the first person with this syndrome to be invited to the show. “Or at least the first to admit it”added.
“I know I’ve said or posted weird things, but it’s just the way my brain works. To anyone who has offended I simply want to say: I reinvented electric cars and I am sending people to Mars in a rocket.. Did you think he was also going to be a relaxed and normal guy? “He said.
Asperger syndrome is a neurologically based developmental disorder that affects a person’s social functioning and spectrum of interests and activities.
This Saturday’s program -which featured a musical number by Miley Cyrus– had the billionaire businessman as guest host and star of numerous skits in which mocked himself, his tweets and even the name of one of his sons, X Æ A-12 Musk.
The boss of Tesla and SpaceX he also referred to the cryptocurrency dogecoin, which he described as “an unstoppable vehicle that is going to take over the world”, and then add that it really is “hubbub”.
So by second time this week, Musk changed the price of the currency, which fell as much as 49 cents during the show’s broadcast, from a short time before it was at 74 cents, according to CoinDesk.
Then, only with the publication of a tweet on his personal account, Musk again pushed a rise in the cryptocurrency, although he clarified that “cryptocurrencies are promising, but please invest with caution.”
