Genius entrepreneur Elon Musk made quite the splash on Saturday! He hosted a hilarious episode of the hit show Saturday Night Live and revealed a diagnosis of his that may explain why he has been misunderstood in the past.

Elon Musk's Asperger's Reveal

The industry tycoon, Elon Musk gave a fun opening monologue where he divulged, "I'm actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger's to host SNL... or at least the first to admit it."

Asperger's is a common neurodevelopmental disorder along the autism spectrum. It usually entails a "higher than average" intellectual ability but with social difficulties and issues with communication.

Elon even poked fun at his own communication difficulty, saying: "Sometimes after I say something I have to say 'I mean that,' so people really know that I mean it. That's because I don't always have a lot of intonational variation in how I speak. which I'm told makes for great comedy."

Elon was able to poke fun at his frequent bouts of getting in trouble with the public for his strange jokes 

"Look I know I sometimes say or post strange things but that's just how my brain works. To anyone I've offended, I just want to say: I've reinvented electric cars and I'm sending people to Mars on a rocketship. Did you also think I was going to be a chill normal dude?"

He made many self-deprecating jokes like explaining his name choice for his and partner Grimes' child, X Æ A-12. He explained that the name is pronounced, 'cat running across keyboard.'" 

His famous mother Maye Musk also joined the stage to celebrate Mother's day the following day! The model joked to Elon saying she hoped her Mother's day gift was not Dogecoin, to which he responded "it is."
