Is Elon Musk an autistic person
US entrepreneur to host "Saturday Night Live" : Elon Musk talks about Asperger's Syndrome on comedy show
During an appearance as host of the US comedy show "Saturday Night Live" (SNL), Tesla boss Elon Musk pointed out his form of autism. He was the first person with Asperger's Syndrome to host the show, said Musk - "or at least the first person to admit it."
In his opening monologue, the eccentric entrepreneur, who is also the founder of the space company SpaceX, gave an explanation for his occasionally strange behavior: "Look, I know that I say or publish strange things, but that's how my brain works."

He wanted to say to everyone he insulted: "I've reinvented electric cars and I'm sending people to Mars in a rocket. Do you really think I was a cozy, normal guy?"
Musk has drawn criticism several times in the past, including for publicly making fun of the US Securities and Exchange Commission. In 2018 he had called a cave diver who was rescuing children from a cave in Thailand "pedo types".
Musk also attracted attention with other statements
At the comedy show, the entrepreneur also joked about the unusual name of his son XÆ A-XII and the cryptocurrency Dogecoin. The currency, with a market value of around 60 billion euros, is "an unstoppable vehicle that will conquer the world," said Musk - only to crash Dogecoin shortly afterwards: When an actor on the show, Michael Che, asked him: "So , it's a hustle? ", Musk replied:" Yeah, it's a hustle. " And then laughed. The English word hustle can be translated as hype, hustle and bustle.

That was enough to drop the price of the crypto currency sharply. It was now trading at just $ 0.47 on the Binance crypto exchange, a 28 percent decrease from the level it had before the broadcast. According to the relevant crypto data site CoinGecko.com, Dogecoin gained more than 800 percent in value last month, making it the fourth largest digital currency - with a market capitalization of $ 73 billion. Last Thursday the price reached a record high of $ 0.73.
Cryptocurrency fans were eagerly awaiting Musk's performance
The appearance was eagerly awaited in the USA, especially by fans of cryptocurrencies. With tweets like "Doge" and "Dogecoin is the people's crypto" (Doge is the people's crypto currency), Musk helped fuel the dogecoin rally. The unconventional CEO had previously repeatedly posted numerous comments about cryptocurrencies on Twitter and criticized normal old cash for only generating negative real interest rates. "Just a fool wouldn't look anywhere else," Musk said in February.
Last Thursday, Musk tweeted: "Cryptocurrency is promising, but please invest with caution!" In an attached video, he also said that cryptocurrencies had a "good chance" of becoming "the future currency of the earth". Tesla customers have been paying for electric cars with the crypto currency Bitcoin since March. Musk himself had bought the highly volatile cryptocurrency for 1.5 billion dollars in early February, causing a hype. (AFP / dpa)
