Elon Musk has received the support of a very special SNL cast member in the deep pool of fans, hating the decision to cast the billionaire as the host for today’s episode.
Today will be a tough test for the business tycoon Elon Musk, as his episode as the SNL host is set to air at 11:30pm EDT. He will be headlining Saturday Night Live with the “WITHOUT YOU” singer, Miley Cyrus and The Kid LAROI as the musical guests.
The official SNL instagram account posted a picture of Elon Musk posing alongside Miley Cyrus and The Kid LAROI. The upcoming SNL host wore a black leather jacket and rocked a bandana around his neck, while Miley looked flamboyant in a big red fur dress.
Miley Cyrus, who has been criticized by her fans for supporting Elon Musk as the SNL host, replied to the post in the same spirit by writing: “Holy trinity”.
Although, Miley isn’t the only supporter of Elon, as one of the permanent cast members of SNL has his back too.
Who is this special cast member supporting Elon Musk as SNL Host?
This special cast member is none other than the hilarious actor Pete Davidson. Yup, Elon Musk has the full support of Pete, as the 27-year-old comedian revealed in an interview on the radio show “The Breakfast Club“.
Pete Davidson talked about how humble of a person Elon Musk is despite being one of the richest people in the world and also how nervous he was when he had discussed the plans for his SNL episode over dinner.
Pete revealed that the dinner he had with Elon Musk was not a heated discussion over planning as he stated that, “We didn’t discuss it at all because we’re all just like … I just don’t understand why this is the dude everyone’s so freaked out about.”
He also joked about asking himself the question: “I was like, ‘What did he do? He’s just like, a really wealthy businessman that makes, like, nerd s–t.’ I don’t know. He’s really nice. I’m excited.”
Pete Davidson also addressed the controversy surrounding the unexpected hiring of an entrepreneur like Elon Musk into a comedy skit show like SNL as the host.
“Everybody’s kind of been like, ‘Yo, who’s the guy that’s so pi**ed off?’ ‘Cause we’re on a group text, so we’re all just like, ‘I don’t know,'” Pete explained. “So, yeah, we’re all excited and really don’t understand the controversy.”
