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.
All these articles saying “Elon Musk, first person to host SNL with asperger’s” forgot about one of SNL’s most famous and brightest stars – Danny Aykroyd.

I think it’s incredibly inspiring that @elonmusk revealed he has Aspergers. It just goes to show that even people with disabilities can be irredeemable, soulless pieces of garbage. #SaturdayNightLive pic.twitter.com/GlIyIwyGhh
