On May 8, Elon Musk is hosting Saturday Night Live, NBC’s long-running late-night comedy show. Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla, will be the first non-actor or athlete to host since Donald J. Trump in November 2015.

Musk, appearing excited to guest host, asked his followers for skit ideas on Twitter. The most favorited comments revolved around Dogecoin – a cryptocurrency that started as a joke in 2013 but is currently worth 41 cents – after Musk has consistently tweeted about it since January 2021. But the internet had mixed emotions.

Twitter reacts to Elon Musk hosting SNL

Some people made funny comments about SNL’s recent announcement on Twitter.

Not so thrilled reactions

Others are upset. Many dislike Musk for downplaying COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic, casually mentioning that human volunteers traveling to Mars will most likely die, making insensitive comments, mocking pronouns and threatening to remove stock options from employees if they unionized.

Backlash from the higher-ups

Some negative reactions came from SNL employees: repertory player Aidy Bryant, writers and featured players Bown Yang and Andrew Dismukes, and writer Sudi Green. They expressed their thoughts on Instagram, but the posts were quickly deleted. Some cast members are even opting out of the upcoming showcase.

Some fans are excited.

However, many people are excited to watch him.

Many Twitter accounts think that Musk will talk about Dogecoin during his monologue, exponentially increasing its price.

Others aren’t so thrilled about the possibility of a crypto push.

It is what it is.

Mixed emotions over upcoming SNL hosts has happened before. Previous polarizing hosts include Trump and Kanye West. But almost everyone can agree that what he will say is unpredictable, as he is known to “troll” online and stir the pot

We’re fighting over who’s to blame for unemployment. The conservatives blame government assistance while the liberals blame low wages and bad working conditions. It's a combination of both. This argument is holding us back. Check out this Op-ed @thehill https://t.co/9YE8ETT4vY
