Saturday Night Live‘s controversial decision to tap Elon Musk as one of its final Season 46 hosts is causing internal strife, with two cast members publicly slamming the move.
As reported on Saturday, the polarizing Tesla CEO/SpaceX bigwig is set to emcee the May 8 episode alongside musical guest Miley Cyrus. The backlash on social media was swift — and Musk seemed to revel in the hullabaloo, cryptically tweeting, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is” — tacking on a devil emoji for good measure.
The tweet prompted a rebuke from cast member Bowen Yang, who commented via Instastory, “What the f–k does that even mean?”
Yang’s SNL co-star Andrew Dismukes, who became a featured player this season after serving as a writer on the show since 2017, also threw shade at Musk move, cracking, “Only CEO I wanna do sketch with is Cher-E Oteri” — a reference to the former SNL MVP.
