On 25 April, SNL announced that Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk would be presenting the comedy sketch show, describing it as “Musk See TV.”
The show is currently taking a one month break and the latest episode will air on May 8. Musk will also be joined by musician, Miley Cyrus.
Now there’s two names you never thought you would see together.

- Mum lets daughter’s ex continue to live with them – and it’s sparked a major online debate
- Viral video shows police officer ‘racially profiling’ Black man at diner
- Justin Bieber shows off new dreadlocks – and is accused of cultural appropriation
- Man who claims he is Charles and Camilla’s son shares new photographic ‘evidence’
But it’s not just the public who were upset about the choice of host, some SNL cast members have even took their dissatisfaction to social media too.
Bowen Yang and Aidy Bryant published posts on social media that seemed to indicate that they weren’t thrilled about the matter.
Bowen reacted to the news in an Instagram Story with a simple frowning face, which was then screenshot and shared on Twitter over the weekend.
After this not-so-subtle shade, the Tesla and SpaceX founder tweeted, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is😈,”
Bowen, obviously not impressed with Musk’s comment, reshared his tweet adding the caption: “What the f**k does that even mean?”
To be honest, we have no idea either.
Again, this animosity was picked up by people on Twitter.
Another fellow cast member, Aidy Byrant was more subtle in her dig at Musk, sharing a tweet from Bernie Sanders about the “moral obscenity” in regards to the lack of wealth distribution in America.
Though this is not the first time “SNL” cast members have called out a controversial hosting choice.
Seth Meyers, Maya Rudolph and Colin Jost have all publicly said that they hated with Donald Trump when he hosted the show back in 2004 and again in 2015 before he became president.
