I'm not even sure what their problem with him is. I know a lot of wokeys hate him for vague reasons that they likely don't even know or understand, but this is kind of dumb.
Yeah, he's sometimes a bit of a trolly douchebag on Twitter, said some dumb things about COVID and vaccines, and named his kid something stupid and incomprehensible, but that's all common behavior for celebrities and uber-rich elites.
Other than that, why would any of them be so uncomfortable or unhappy that they're unwilling to do the job they're paid to do? Sound like a bunch of (mostly talentless) brats.
Elon Musk appeared a little stiff in a dark, double-breasted jacket on "Saturday Night Live" as he was greeted with uncertain applause, but he delivered solid material and seemed to win over his live audience.
From the second:
Awkward attempts at humor, jokes in poor taste, sky-high ego, and a sprinkling of questionably motivated deception. The Elon Musk you see in headlines, interviews, and, most importantly, tweets is the Elon Musk who showed up to kick off Saturday Night Live in his first turn as the show's host.
The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder ran through what could be accurately described as a "greatest hits" barrage of one-liners winding through his most well-known (and infamous) moments, touching on Dogecoin, eyebrow-raising tweets, his kid's unusual name, and smoking weed on some meathead's podcast. (Strangely, he left out all the COVID misinformation he helped to perpetuate.)
He also snuck in a spectacularly ill-conceived wisecrack about O.J. Simpson that turned the murder of two people — whoever actually committed the deed — into a punchline. (Two, actually.)
Here's his monologue:
Meh. He's hardly Eddie Murphy, but it's not the worst monologue I've ever seen. And the Simpson bit wasn't much, really. Seems like the Mashable writer is just being a gigantic prick. A little dark humor about something from 1995 just isn't much to get wound up about...unless one is looking to get wound up.
