On top of the value of Dogecoin dropping from its record value after Elon Musk‘s appearance on Saturday Night Live, some other news came from Musk’s SNL appearance.

Musk was praised for his surprisingly funny monologue, but moreover, fans were even more impressed when the billionaire revealed that he has Asperger’s syndrome. “I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host Saturday Night Live, or at least the first to admit it,” said Musk.

While partially correct, Dan Aykroyd was technically the first host of SNL with Asperger’s syndrome. Aykroyd was a cast member from 1975 to 1979 and returned in 2003 to host but it was only in 2013 when he revealed that he had Asperger’s syndrome.

In other entertainment news, Seth Rogen says he will no longer work with James Franco after sexual misconduct allegations.
